R.A.C.K.'ed is back

Copy/Image 1a

As 2018 comes to a close and Christmas draws near we are busy preparing for RACK'ed.  RACK'ed is an acronym for Random Acts of Christmas Kindness, and has become one of our favorite Christmas traditions.  Both our branch and Bickford of West Des Moines participate in giving back to those around us and our broader community.

At the Urbandale branch both Rosslyn, and Mary Pat will lead 5 different RACK'ed projects throughout the month.  Kait, our new Community Relations Director, will do 10 acts of kindness, and the Life Enrichment Coordinators at the West Des Moines  branch will complete 5.  

 

Save the Date and join us for Holiday Merriment!

Bickford's Annual Christmas Party is Thursday, December 20th from 4-7pm. We will have live music in both our Assisted Living and Mary B's common areas.

Kait Kelly recently joined the Bickford family as Director of Community Relations at the Urbandale and West Des Moines branches.  Kait, a graduate of Iowa State University, and her husband, Patrick, recently moved back to Iowa from South Dakota to be closer to family and friends.  Family has always been a priority for the Kellys.
