June has to be a great month; it's national soul food, fresh fruits and veggetables, camping, ice tea, and rose month. We will be busy growing our own tomatoes, cabbage, and peppers, have some flavored tea taste testing, and hopefully take the Howie bus on some excursions to see rose gardens, camp grounds, cemeteries, the Freedom rock, and fishing.

 

June 3-5 is free fishing days in Iowa, so grab your rod and reel, and relax at Sand Lake, Green Castle, or wherever your heart desires. We will also have some "magnet fishing" activities in the courtyard where the "pond" is full of sweedish fish and gummy worms.

We will have some field trips with our trusted bus driver, Rick, another fun Director's Social similar to last month's popular Kentucky Derby event, cooking and nurse chats with Bobbi and Myra. 

 

We welcome our new kitchen staff, Nancy!

 

We have mini golf, yard darts, ladder ball, yard Yahtzee, giant Connect 4, and lots of cookies and lemonade!

We are excited to have such a beautiful courtyard with bird feeders, hanging baskets, fountains, tomato beds, and people enjoying each other's company. We will do some kite flying, bubble art, and play our new yard games.

 

We are very delighted to have our new chaplain, Michael Holl, who is already doing a wonderful job with Bible Study Tuesdays at 2:30 and Chuch Service Sundays at 6:15. Welcome Michael and family!
