What an amazing picnic we had at Crapo Park this week. The residents had fried chicken, potato salad, and fresh fruit. After roasting marshmallows and eating S'Mores, many of the residents had fun swinging and going down the slide. It was a great way to get some Vitamin D from the sunshine!

Living in the Midwest gives us the advantage of not getting used to one particular season for too long! I love traveling to all of my branches to see what creative things they have come up with to ring in the new season. Fall is no exception, as I LOVE the pumpkins, colorful leaves and smell of spices in the air. This front porch is one example of the crisp autumn welcome you will get when dropping by.

Scholarship Recipient One of the many great opportunities Bickford provides for their Bickford Family members is the opportunity to advance their education through financial assistance. Bickford offers 2 scholarships each year. The Bickford scholarship is for current Bickford Family Members who are interested in furthering their education. The Eby Scholarship is for the children of Bickford Family Members who are pursuing higher education. I was lucky enough to not only present both scholarships to 2 very deserving students in my division, but the Eby scholarship was extra special as it went to my daughter this year! Riley is going to be a sophomore at the University of Iowa, majoring in nursing. She is a member of Phi Theta Kappa Honors Sorority, and has been accepted into the honors program. Congratulations Riley! Pictured is Riley (left) receiving her scholarship certificate from Divisional Director of Resident Services for Eastern Iowa/Western Illinois, Michelle Adam.
