The Magnolia at Frewsburg Memory Care August Lookback
Though the sunny days were prominent in the month of August, the night time breeze and the turning leaves makes us hopeful for the upcoming season! August was a busy month here at the Magnolia, and we are saying goodbye to the summer with an appreciation for the time we all get to spend together as The Magnolia family that we are.
The month of August started out fast with many celebrations. Within the first week we celebrated National Watermelon Day, this celebration was complete with all the fixings of watermelon cupcakes and treats! Within the same week we also celebrated the Jamestown icon Lucille Ball’s birthday. It was so much fun celebrating our local sweetheart the way she would have celebrated herself, laughing! Her birthday was made special by watching “I Love Lucy” episodes and eating delicious popcorn! In the second week of August, our baking group outdid themselves again we celebrated National S’mores Day baking a s’mores dessert and of course enjoying it. Our regular groups here at The Magnolia are always a staple and are enjoyed by a plethora of our memory care residents. Our craft club made some creative crafts this month, but we are not surprised by all of the talents that make up The Magnolia. Wooden bead fairies and cube photo holders, just to name a few are some of the crafts that allow our residents to explore their creativity.
Some other celebrations that took place in the month of August included National Creamsicle Day, where we enjoyed our wonderful porch area and of course orange goodness. As we dove further into the month of August, our residents celebrated National Senior Citizen Day with our annual corn roast. Our residents left the social with smiles on their faces from the enjoyment that comes with something as simple as buttery corn on the cob. As we rounded out the month, we celebrated the birthdays of August, and a huge hit, banana splits on National Banana Split day. It is amazing how simple celebrations make for exciting experiences for our residents.
As the summer winds down, we will continue to utilize the beautiful countryside facility that is The Magnolia. Sing a longs, trivia, beverage socials, and a plethora of physical and cognitive games are all enjoyed outside as we soak up these last weeks of summer.
Though the summer seemed to fly by, we are even more excited for what the new season brings. There is an array of awesome activities planned for September, and we are eager to see what new excitement will happen as the leaves start falling!
