Director/Nurse Manager A nice week of weath- er finally blew in with the wind after the storms came through! The strong winds blew our television satellite right out of alignment, so we were without cable TV for almost two days! The activities for this week have included J-I-N-G-O, PoKeNo, BINGO, Bible Study, Wii, Bone Builders, 500, SkipBo and the bus ride down town Walnut Grove. Some of this week's win- ners include Agnes Seykora, June Boerboom, Georgiana Mincy, Audrey Schroeder and Hazel Takle. The Sahlstrom family was here providing musical entertainment for the tenants. They are a talented family with all playing an instru- ment and the ability to sing wonderfully. We enjoyed ice cream following the enter- tainment. Looking forward to Thursday, there will be Ecumenical church set/ices at 8:30 a.m. in the commu- nity room and Adopt-A- Grandparent in the evening at 6:30 p.m. The garage is nearing ,zom- pletion. The shingles and siding are done and it cer- tainly looks like a garage. It appears as though the finish- ing touches are all that are left to complete. Hope everyone enjoyed the fireworks on the 4th! There was much happening in the area, so perhaps you were able to get outdoors and enjoy the celebration. That's the news frorn the country. Enjoy your week!
