Well winter is here and the Old Farmers Almanac predicts a cold and snowy winter in Nebraska, but we shall see.  You know they always say that you never know what kind of weather your going to get in Nebraska.  We have a Shopper's Christmas Showcase for Monday December 3, 2018 from 2-3:30pm.  Everyone is welcome to attend!!

Our annual Family Christmas Celebration will be Sunday December 9, 2018 from 1:30-3:00.  We will have a visit from Santa and Mrs. Clause, Christmas Treats, Hot Cocoa/Coffee Bar and Music by The Kramer Sisters.  Everyone is welcome to attend.  We have our Bickford Residents practicing Sing Alongs and on Friday December 21st at 2:00pm at the Resident Christmas Party they will share their voices. There will be Holiday Treats and Santa will pass out gifts to the residents. New Years Eve there will be a celebration with Champagne and snacks to ring in the New Year.  We will celebrate at 2pm.

                         VETERAN'S DAY 2018

Veteran's Day was celebrated at Bickford by Thanking the Veteran's who served with a certificate and pin.  But it was also emotional for many and not just those that served, but for the family members who have some one serving now or in the past.  Thanks to all those who helped make the day special for many!!
