Happy November!

As the holiday season approaches the activity department is busy, busy, busy. During the month of November, we will recognize our Veterans with a Veterans Day celebration with staff and residents and a pinning ceremony to honor all ECH residents who severed, and who have not received a flag pin before. Veterans will also receive a certificate of honor. These events will take place on November 10th at 2pm that afternoon.

Throughout the month residents will be celebrating Thanksgiving by making a craft stick turkey, playing Thanksgiving bingo, making paper plate pilgrims, discussing what we are thankful for, making and hanging up Gratitude pumpkins in the dining room for all to see. At the end of the month, we will be celebrating all the November birthdays, listening to music played by Dave Poggenklass, and cooking with Chef Kevin our corporate chef.
