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!

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.
