Residents, Sisters, staff, and volunteers gathered together to ring in the New Year- 2016. The evening began at 5:30 p.m. in the auditorium where the residents enjoyed a variety of finger foods and cocktails. Musical entertainment was provided by Gary, who sang, while residents and staff danced along.
After ice cream was served we began our countdown to “midnight” at 7:15 p.m. 3, 2, 1…and with a pull of the string two balloon drops released a cascade of balloons and glitter as we all shouted “Happy New Year!” Gary broke out in our Home’s theme song, “Sweet Caroline,” as everyone exchanged kisses and New Year’s well wishes.
This month the Home was happy to welcome two newresidents and two new Sisters, Sr. Majella and Sr. Emily who were there to celebrate with us. What a wonderful way to begin a new year…with new friends!
