Last Week Pat, Mary, Jim and Marvin enjoyed an afternoon full of fishing! It was a bit warm and the sun showed it's true colors today, perhaps that's why the fish did not bite! We had a good time, and cooled off in the shade with some cold water afterwords. Better luck nextime!

135 year of experience? is that possible? Well, if you combine the years of service for the 15 Bickford Family Members I had the privilege of recognizing these past few weeks, it sure is! One of my favorite parts of the job is recognizing and celebrating our Bickford Family Members that have achieved employment milestones in 5 year increments. This past quarter, I proudly handed out 15 Bickford necklaces ranging from 5 year to 15 year anniversaries. One branch alone had four 15 year necklaces alone! It truly says a lot about the wonderful company that is Bickford when we have that kind of dedication. Congratulations to all those Bickford Family Members who show us every day their commitment to quality care and desire to enrich our resident's lives. (Shown in picture is Kelly Rixen, 15 yrs; Kim Schaffer, 15 years; Holly Ebensberger, 5 years, all from the Clinton Branch. Not pictured: Deb Bradley, 15 years; Molly Brosius, 15 years)
