Wednesday evening was such a wonderful time as we hosted our “Moonlight & Mistletoe” event at Bickford of Lancaster. We had about 300 guests for dinner, with entertainment by Mike & Boom Boom, Berne Union High School Choir, and our very own Carrie Shymanski and her Grandmother, who delighted us with their duets on the piano. And, what Christmas evening would be complete without a visit from Santa & Mrs. Claus & his elves! The residents and families had a wonderful time! Thank you to all who came and enjoyed ushering in the holiday season with us! Merry Christmas from your Bickford Family! We love you all!!!
