As we look forward to the fall season we are antic- ipating the harvest season with its changing scenery and fall aromas filling the air. The trees Outside of our windows have already begun to display a fine fall picture. We have enjoyed sitting on the patio soaking in the warmer fall tempera- tures the last few days. There is much discussion during these outside ses- sions or in the mornings waiting for the mail to arrive. Is it possille that there aremany problems of the world solved and no one is sharing? We look forward to new activities coming yet this month. There will be a card making session and also a favorite game of Domino Bingo. Of course there will be games of Skip Bo, garbage, dominoes and maybe even some surprises.

It has been a beauti- ful summer for outings with the cooler days. We always have at least enough resi- dents to take one cart ride, often we need to offer a second one so all who want to go can. We have tried to take the residents around town weekly as weather and schedule permit. Favorite outing activities have been looking at the vegetable and flower gar- dens, stopping for popcorn at the bank and this week they picked a few apples along the way. Speaking of gardens, we want to tell you how much we have appreciated the fresh produce the local gar- deners have shared. There isn't anything as tasty as fresh sweet corn and fresh tomatoes ! We express our sympathy to the family and friends of Bernice Bashans. We will miss her as not only as a resident but also as a volun- teer and friend who enter- tained the people at our almost monthly for over 30 years. Resident Council met this past Monday with Ruth Egenes, our social worker. Attending were Katherine Sondergaard, Vera Quade, Bev Busswitz, Elta Barker, Wera Larson, Merron Gullickson, Amy Pederson, Agnes Zgoda, and Ethel Cohrs..
