As the weather starts to cool off our Fall Bean Bag Baseball Season is getting into full swing.  Bickford of Urbandale plays as part of a Central Iowa Bean Bag Baseball League in which Assisted Living Communities compete for two months in the Fall.  The season will culminate in the World Series on Wednesday, December 5th.  

 

The Annual Puppy Spooktacular is just around the corner.  Come join us on Friday, October 19th for an afternoon of fun.  If you have a dog who would like to compete in this beloved costume contest please contact Mary Pat or Rosslyn.

School is back in session and the wonderful students from Hoover High School are back at Bickford to learn job skills.  This year Miss Gish (their teacher) is back, with 3 new students.  We look forward to getting to know this group of students.  They will be here most school days in the afternoon for a couple of hours.

 

Many of our old favorite activities are back this month and we've added a few new ones.  One of those activities, the 3 c's is coffee, cookies, and cards.  Come out for this with Rosslyn on Tuesdays throughout the month.

We are family

On Friday, October 12th we are celebrating Family History Day.  Our two main activities that day are to update our Bickford Family Tree that hangs in the sunroom, and taking a bus tour around Des Moines.  The tour tracing our roots is about the history of Des Moines as it pertains to our residents.  Between now and then please see Mary Pat to put in your request for a highlight along the tour.  Ideas for stops are places such as your family home, place of business, or favorite park.
