The Magnolia June Look Back

June was another great month for us here at the Magnolia! We had a good mix of musical performances, outings, and fun games to play!

Among our performances we had the Larsen Family stop by and play some of our favorite oldies for us, our folks love seeing kids so young with so much talent! Davis and Eng also paid us a visit and performed some bluegrass and a lot of songs our residents know and love.

For outings this month we took an afternoon trip to get ice cream which was nice and refreshing on a hot June day. We enjoyed a nice lunch at Arby’s as well as dinner at The Plaza in Warren.  We were blessed to have a beautiful, sunny day on our picnic trip to Erlandson Overview Park in Frewsburg, our folks loved the nature and gorgeous views there! To finish off the outings for the month we took a peaceful morning ride around the lake which our residents always enjoy.

The residents really enjoyed our games this month as well. Ladderball, Bean Bag Toss, and Ring Toss are favorites that popped up multiple times this month along with our must-have activity Bingo! Name That Tune was a new game introduced this month which included someone from activities playing the beginning of a song and stopping it while the resident had to guess who sang it or what the name of the song was. Walking Group was also something new introduced this month and worked out amazing since we had sunny and warm days every time we went out! We also started our movie and popcorn activities again which are two of our favorite things put together!

During the third week of June, Ethel from the American Legion came and threw a party for our veterans, which was a great time for socializing, eating, and honoring those who have fought for our country and freedoms.

The Fireman’s Parade in Frewsburg happened on the fifteenth which our resident’s enjoyed watching and our veteran’s rode in, and then won the parade’s Crowd Favorite Motorized Non-Fire award! What a good part of the month!

With June having been such a great month we are thrilled to see what July has in store! If you have any questions or comments about upcoming activities, please contact Jordan in Activities at    (716)569-3095 Ext. 6714 or email at [email protected]
