We host- ed an appreciation lunch- eon on Thursday, April 29 at 2 p.m. for the people who have shared their time and talents with our residents this past year. All volunteers of our facil- ity are welcome to attend. Just a note to say a few words about the Festival of Tables last Friday evening. As a social evening, it was great fun, Ramona and her crew served a terrific meal, and, of course, the tables were creative and each had a flair of their own. We appreciate each and everyone who sup- ported and helped in any way. It was such a suc- cess that we hope to do it again next year. Our hats are off to Kathy Schweim who coordinated the event. Volunteers helping this past week with activ- ities included Anna Margaret Warner with sing along, and Joan DesLauriers with games. Joan recently acquired a mall puppy and has been bringing him to visit, he's been a great little visitor. Carolyn Benson visited and did manicures for some of the ladies.
