Residents have enjoyed the cooler weather and many have enjoyed walking or sitting outside. The flowers have been so colorful this year. Residents went on a bus outing to the Lake Shetek area last Tuesday. Nancy Burns, Act. Assistant and Tanya Buchholz, CNA, brought out points of interests including the sighting of deer while driving through the state park, with stops at the monument and at a mini mart. Residents all enjoyed a treat on their way home. I will not go through all the volunteers who have served our residents this past month as I did take some time off and haven't gotten an article written for the last couple of weeks. I'm going to have to attend that Wednesday afternoon chit chat group to get in on the fun. Last week as I was going to get a cup of coffee I saw peo- ple gathered around five tables. It was great to see the residents and guests enjoying their visit. Last week a special young man, David Scotto, a Boy Scout from New Jersey, spent several hours at our facility. This is the second year he has chosen to do volunteer service in Westbrook while visiting his grand- parents, Jim and Peggy Klasse. His sister, Valorie also helped with some of the activities.
