Rolling Hills August News
August News Article
We begin by recognizing our friends celebrating their birthday in the month of August: Ron, Eunice, Jerry, Sharon, Tanya, Roger, Dennis and Larry.
July has been a busy month for us! We had our second picnic of the summer, went on outings, enjoyed live music and even had a water balloon toss! We took outings on scenic drives, to Ginny’s for some ice cream, to Wal-Mart for shopping, out to eat at Culver’s, to a concert in the park and to the County Fair in Tomah. At our picnic this month we got to have some delicious burgers on the grill and enjoy a nice sunny afternoon outside eating and visiting with friends and family. One of the highlights of the month was the water balloon toss. It was not a nice sunny day but many of us still enjoyed going outside and throwing water balloons around. Our activity director Linda even brought her son and a friend to catch water balloons with us!
A group of us was able to go to the County Fair and got to experience some favorite summer traditions including eating funnel cake and kettle corn and seeing all of the farm animals.
Some other memorable activities we did this month are our monthly breakfast club, playing Family Feud, a photo booth at our music and art program and of course visits from one activity staff, Elaine, with the ice cream truck.
We always want to thank our musicians that come play for us. This month that included the Mennonites, the Counter Parts Band, Nell, Prairie Dog Rehab, Paul, Tim, Frank, Laurel, Myron, and Dianne & Dianne who came to do a patriotic sing-a-long with us! We also thank our many volunteers including our pet therapy dogs who came to visit, Josie and Keota, the Loin’s Club, our bingo volunteers and many more. One of our activity staff, Nicole will be leaving us in August and we wish her well!
We are looking forward to another fun summer month here at Rolling Hills. We will be having our third picnic of the year, enjoying root beer floats, going fishing, welcoming more musical guests, and going on outings including another concert in the park!
