All About August

Summer has just flown by! We have been enjoying warm, sunny days on the patio and daily walks in the garden. We will miss all of our summer volunteers who are heading back to school. They have been so helpful to the staff and the participants. We are so grateful to them and wish them continued success in their future.

We will celebrate Hawaii during the month of August. Hawaii was declared the 50th state on August 21, 1959----- 50 years ago! Hawaiian Week will be the last week in August. Our annual Hawaiian Luau will be held on Friday, August 28, 2009 at 1:45 P.M. Music will be provided by Cliff Spratt (in his Hawaiian shirt) and hula dancing with Nadine. It is a fun filled afternoon. We are looking forward to eating Hawaiian food, word games, trivia and other activities with an Hawaiian theme.

Be sure to sign up for the Memory Walk on Saturday, September 19, 2009 at City Park. All donations are welcome and go to the Alzheimer's Association. They continue on their quest to find a cure for the disease. What a great cause!
