And the winter continues on… Even so, resident Vern can be seen walking the streets of Damariscotta, in and out of shops and Yellowfront, and getting his daily dose of health.
The home has received several gifts since the holidays. The ladies of the Baptist church in Camden are making lap quilts for the residents. Art supplies were donated by Margaret Smith — so welcome for the weekly classes Carol Teel teaches in the lower level. On that note, next time you visit Hodgdon Green, look around. The art board in the dining room showcases some lovely work, and throughout the home one can see the results of weekly art classes.
A note of thanks goes to Melissa (“Missy”), who comes in three times a week to clean and help to keep the home ship-shape. So many folks take part in keeping the place a pleasant place to be, and they are greatly appreciated.
He’s back! He’s back! Hallelujah! After several bouts with ill health and accidents, chef Elijah Curtis is back in the kitchen, supplying food for both body and soul. His cheerfulness and caring ways have been missed. And so, do come this Friday, Feb. 2 from 9-11 a.m. for Elijah’s Coffee House. Visit with residents, take the wall-art wall puzzle tour, and enjoy some great treats and coffee.
Resident Lila Blechman continues rehearsing with the Hearts Ever Young group. That is one show you will not want to miss! Still a bit of a way off, but mark your calendar for May 18, 7 p.m., and May 19 and 20 at 2 p.m. The theme, “Love That Song,” will have you singing right along with the cast.
A thought for the month, taken from Guideposts magazine: “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” Make someone feel good today. Blessings!
