We're enjoying getting to know our new residents. We are a family, and we are blessed to get to mix and mingle with so many wonderful people in the comfort of our own home. Please step out of your comfort zone a bit and reach out to a new Bickford family member and make them feel welcome.

 

If  you enjoyed Happy Hour on August 12th, come on back for another good ol' Bickford Happy Hour on the 1st at 3:00. Invite your family and friends, and let's drink, eat, and be merry.

September is Intergeneration Month so we are looking forward to having guests of all ages share about the fads of their childhood and engage in some ageless games that we all remember.

If your family has any memories and photos of the 50s that you would like to share on the 13th for our 50s Reminiscing Activity, please give them to Sarah, and we'll share our memories and fun photos.

This month's theme day is taking us back to the 50s, so dig out your poodle skirt and join us on the 13th for a sock hop and have your photo taken by a nice old car that will take ya back to the good ol days.

 

We enjoyed hearing from Leigh Bauder about Splash for Life and took our bus to check out the new Gallery Garden on Main. Where will Howie take us next?
