There is always something fun and new going on each time I am at one of my branches. In Burlington today, resident Mary Aringdale enjoys a chair massage after a yoga session with yoga instructor Angel Beck of Burlington. 10 residents came down to stretch and relax with the yoga session, then ended with a nice back massage. What a great way to relieve some stress and gear up for the day! Show me the zen!

This week we were fortunate to have some kids from Burlington High School come and volunteer their time. A few of the students washed all the windows, inside & out! Others did adorable spring time crafts with the residents, then frosted sugar cookies that were yummy. They ended the day by playing bingo with residents and they provided a variety of fun prizes for the winners. The residents really enjoyed spending the day with all the great kidos!

Is it Spring yet? Not only has Mother Nature overslept, I think she is in a coma! We are all anticipating the arrival of warmer weather despite the calendar saying spring has been here almost a month. The branches are anxiously anticipating the opportunity to get outside to start planting flowers. Even though our pots and baskets are yet to make an appearance, we do have our front porches cleaned up and we invite you to enjoy the porch in the hopes spring will actually spring here soon!
