Bickford Bees Rock 2018

Copy/Image 1a

Bickford of Urbandale was extremely blessed in 2018.  We added two amazing housekeepers, some wonderful CNA's, and RN's, new Community Relations Director, another Life Enrichment Coordinator, and our very own Bickford Bees won the World Series!

 

Our Bean Bag Baseball team plays home and away games all season long.  The season culminates in the Central Iowa Bean Bag Baseball World Series.  It's a really long name, and it sounds like a big deal.  It is.

 

On the morning of December 5th, many of our team members awoke much earlier than normal.  We headed to West Des Moines Christian Church for the World Series.

There were 15 other teams in the series.  We were the first team to arrive, and the last to leave.  Not only did we bring home the championship title, but we had a great time.  Robin called the branch ahead of our arrival to let them know of our victory.  We were greeted by a tremendous roar of cheers and the Queen song "We are the champions" played in the background.  It was a perfect Christmas time story about the underdog's rise to the top through hardwork and persistence.  Thanks to all who made the victory possible.  It was truly the effort of an entire village.  Way to go Bees! 

 

May your 2019 be filled with blessings, good health, love,  and lots of laughter!
