Love is in the air with February here! We will have many decadent treat served during programs, and Valentine’s Craft to make throughout the month. February 7th and 1st, residents will dine on an Italian dish of lasagna for Ladies’ and Men’s Lunch Club, since Verona, Italy is considered the City of love. On February 14th we celebrate Valentine’s Day with our friend Glenn William. Delicious sweets with tea and coffee will be served, while we are serenaded by love songs on the piano and accordion. Regular Tea Socials and Music Events we will be sure to serve dessert squares, cream puffs and chocolate. Mmmm Mmmm good!
Wear your Pajamas all day on February 23rd. Some days it is nice to just stay in your PJs all day and take it easy. Regular programs will be running in the morning, if you don’t want to sleep in, followed by some afternoon baking and an evening Pajama Party Pub Night with Glen Pearson to end the day. All are invited to roll out of bed and come join!
We have been including a Music and Dancing program on the 1st floor one Saturday a month at 2:00pm. Many residents are always looking for the next opportunity to bust a move. It is great exercise and a lot of fun. Colleen Durdon will be our performer this month on February 25th.
Upcoming Bus trips will be something to look forward to this month. We will start the 1st of the month heading to a new spot Brian, Recreation staff, has picked out for us. We will tour Fraser Forshore Park and visit Brian’s dog on the way back to Harmony Court. The second trip on the 8th we will be going to the Bowling alley in Coquitlam for a couple games before lunch. If it is a big hit and enjoyed, we will head there again in the near future with another group. That way everyone interested will get an opportunity to go. Finally the last bus trip of the month will land on the 22nd with a trip to Deep Cove. It is a beautiful scenic spot to stop and enjoy a snack.
If you know you will be able to attend any of our special events, please let me know ahead of time so the recreation team can try our best to save a spot for you to join your loved one. You can email or call at any time.
Wishing you all the best!
