Hello from our home to your home. Christmas is finally here, and our halls and lobbies are decorated with Christmas cheer. We have over 50 small and large trees throughout the building, ranging in sizes from
12 inches to 12 feet tall. Please come out and visit our home, enjoy the Christmas trees and sit and have a cup of coffee with us. Residents enjoyed the sounds of the Sunshine Singers last week, and the
Sunshine Singers put on a wonderful concert. Raoma and Larry were here for some awesome country music, Thursday afternoon. Ava High School Leadership Class was here Thursday at noon and residents enjoyed talking to the kids. Bethany Horn and Taylor Coonts brought in their puppies to share with the residents.
