The Magnolia at Frewsburg February Look Back Newsletter
Although February is the shortest month of the year, we had a jam-packed month full of activities and fun here at the Magnolia.
Our Craft Clubs kept us both busy and entertained throughout the month with several Valentines Day themed projects. We made no-sew heart shaped pillows made with felt and fluffed with stuffing! Instead of sending out traditional cards for the holiday, we made our own “Love Bug” ladybug cards to deliver to friends or family. We painted a delicious cupcake during our Paint with Ericka session this month, and made crafted elegant hats for our fancy tea party that afternoon!
We had plenty of opportunity to celebrate Valentine’s Day. We played several rounds of “minute-to-win-it” with candy conversation hearts – such as seeing how many we could stack in one minutes, as well as “heart drop”, where we plucked the candy with tongs into a bottle against an opponent. We made delicious chocolate covered strawberries in baking group, and had a Love Day social with pretty pink cupid floats, made with cherry soda and vanilla ice cream! Lastly, we had a Mardi Gras party which was a big hit! Our activity staff hid a “baby” under one the chairs to claim the King or Queen of Mardi Gras! Our friend Joyce was the lucky recipient and won a Tim Hortons gift card! Like each month, we had our birthday party with cupcakes, ice cream, and great company.
February was a fantastic last month of winter. We’re so looking forward to the signs of spring and sunshine that we’re sure March will come to bring. We can’t wait to gets our hands dirty in our garden and see the full bloom from the trees and surrounding areas full of flowers.
We are now open for limited visitation by appointment! If you would like to schedule a day and time to meet with your friend or loved one, please contact reception at (716) 569-3095. We hope to see you soon!
