February Newsletter


Dear Friends,

We are already three quarters of the way through the month of February, and we have been blessed with some pretty nice weather. Some of the sunsets and sunrises have been just beautiful this month, with lots of pink and purple to light up the sky. Despite some of the cold days we have had the daffodils have not been deterred, having stems 4-6 inches above the ground! The snow drops are already out in our neck of the woods, it's really uplifting to see everything starting to stir!

We did start the month with a "big" Super Bowl party. Most of the viewers made it until half-time, then went to bed and with that dreadful first half performance who could be blamed! But the two super fans, Jack and John, made it to the end! Both admitted the lack of sleep was worth it! There was an amble supply of beverages and snacks to keep them going, not to mention the ribbing that could be dealt out the next day to those who could not stay awake!

Valentine's Day did not go by unnoticed! We had a little dessert party for everyone, and sat back and relaxed, surrounded by a lot of chocolate! Cupid had left some little presents to spread some cheer to everyone, a very nice afternoon for all.

We are planning our annual "Paint the Town Red" fundraising event coming up in March. As usual, it will be held at The American Legion Hall, and it is scheduled for Saturday, March 25th. The door opens at 5:30 PM for drinks (cash bar), then is followed by a prime rib dinner around 6ish. Bob Lehman will be our auctioneer for the evening, and will also keep the pace of the evening rolling! Tickets are a very reasonable $35 each, and the evening is always such a good time. You can pick up your tickets at the Homestead prior to the event, or from any of the members of the Board of Directors. This will be our 12th year doing this event, and both the guests and the Board never tire of it. Please join us for a fun evening with good food and good people, and support a great cause.

We have a very quiet birthday month at the Homestead, but we will celebrate Esther Johnson's birthday on the 26th. Happy Birthday to you Esther!! Esther will have her son Rob visiting from California, her daughter Leslie, and her sister Louise to celebrate with! I'm sure it will be a great day!

Over the winter we have had a couple of local students volunteer their time with us for their school requirements. It has been fun for both the residents and the staff to have them with us, a new face always brings new energy and new ideas. So fun!

Mary Zimmerman has headed down to Florida for a week in the sun and warm weather. We wish both Mary and her daughter Lynn a safe trip and lots of fun along the way! Lynn, you are amazing!

Take Care!
