The Senior Prom of 2009 was a huge success. Fellowship Hall was filled with balloons, decorations, dancing, wonderful music and great company. A big thank you goes out to Wilma, Steve and Dick for the great music that brought back so many wonderful memories. It was amazing to see everyone dressed in their finest along with corsages and boutonnieres. The highlight of the afternoon was the crowning of the King and Queen and their first dance. So many families joined in the fun and a great time was had by all!

During the month of July we will be celebrating pets with our first "Pet Parade". Staff and participants are invited to bring in photos of their pets along with stories or perhaps a real live pet. Dogs, cats, birds, ferrets, horses----you name it! Most people have fond memories of their pets, past or present. We look forward to sharing all of these with one another. There will be a display area for all the photos. It should be lots of fun and a great way to honor our furry friends.

The Center will be closed on Friday, July 3, 2009 to celebrate the holiday weekend. We wish all our participants and families a fun and safe 4th of July. Enjoy all the picnics, barbecues and firework displays.

June Happenings

Summer is around the corner and our flower and vegetable gardens have been planted. We have been busy tending to all the different variety of flowers and enjoying the beautiful array of colors.
Gardening in the fresh air and sunshine is relaxing and therapeutic. We would like to extend a warm welcome to all our summer volunteers from Swedish Medical Center. We look forward to getting to know all of you.
The Senior Prom will be held on Wednesday, June 24, 2009 at 1:45pm. Music will be provided by the trio of Wilma, Steve, and Dick (husband of one of our participants). It will be an afternoon filled with great music, prizes, refreshments, and of course dancing! We look forward to seeing who the King and Queen of the Prom will be.
