April was an exciting month for us at Park Terrace.  I know we have all been looking forward to Spring and  Easter.  April brought warm weather along with our unpredictable peeks back to winter.

For one of our crafts, our residents created their Easter eggs using fabric.  A little bit of a knack to it, but they are beautiful.  We have such great help that guide the residents should they need it.  I’m sure you will appreciate the pictures of this.  The month of April would not be the same without coloring Easter eggs.  The residents enjoyed this also.

For our Easter celebration, the residents had an Easter Tea with the Goldenair’s singing.  They sang a variety of songs including old-time, Spiritual and the classic “In My Easter Bonnet”, while the residents sang along, sipped their tea and coffee and dined on lemon dessert.  The Ministry Center looked so festive with lots of little bunnies hanging around!  It was a great prelude to our Easter celebrations here and at home with loved ones.

We celebrated our volunteers with a Square Dance and grilling party on the 25th of April.   Abe Maier and his square dancers came to entertain and to invite residents, volunteers and employees to dance with them.  What a “hoot”.  We had one resident dance with them and many volunteers and employees.  It was so much fun to see so many smiles on their faces after winter’s long months.  A good time was had by all!!

We look forward to May and hopefully  the flowers it will bring.
