Memory Garden November Look Back

Memory Garden had a wonderful November this year! With the snow making a grand entrance, it definitely kicked off the holiday spirit. One thing it led us to do, was create a thankful tree which we wrote on a leaf what we are most thankful for.

We stayed entertained with some fun favorites that we always love to welcome. We started off the month with our very own Golden Gems performance who sang songs of patriotism to honor our Veteran’s. We enjoyed gospel hymn ballads by Saved By Grace. We gave Gabriella Caruso a warm welcome as she got us singing and dancing in our seats. Lucille Shurkus put on a fun karaoke style performance while singing old classics. The adorable Larsen family came back and showed off their many talents. Stan Barton and Steve Davis had our toes tapping with some fun country, and a little blue grass as well. Rick Bruening sang some wonderful tunes from the 50s.

One thing we truly enjoy here at Memory Garden is of course, food. We enjoyed some homemade deviled eggs on deviled eggs day and boy were they delicious! We enjoyed a delicious lunch at Bemus Point Inn and sipped on some yummy milkshakes! We honored our Veterans and gave them a delicious Veteran’s Day Luncheon that they truly appreciated. We made cupcakes for our birthday party and they were all gobbled up. Thanksgiving dinner of course keeps us “stuffed”. We held a block party on Black Eyed Susan with some tasty pizza. Betsy’s in Busti was a hit for a savory breakfast. We can’t forget about our Take Out Thursday with some yummy Italian from our favorite, Olive Garden!

We always like to keep busy with Painting with Jill as we painted our favorite scenes from our past. We held Armchair Travels and “flew off” to Germany. We snacked on German Chocolate Cake and German Potato Salad. We stayed festive with Thanksgiving Jingo and had a fun Tea Party! We also got creative and made our own homemade pretzels with Jill. YUM!

We will be keeping our holiday spirit alive with some very festive activities as well as entertainment in December. We will definitely be busy and we cannot wait. Please join us as we enjoy these upcoming months! If you have any questions or comments about any upcoming activities please contact Cheryl Hayes, Memory Garden Activities Coordinator, (716)488-9434, extentsion 2226.
