It's never fun to cancel an activity, but for the safety of our residents, staff, and volunteers, we ask that you stay home and stay healthy tonight. We look forward to the day when we can welcome you back into our facility!

Arise, My Love

Newsong

Not a word was heard at the tomb that day,
Just shuffling of soldiers' feet as they guarded the grave.
One day, two days, three days had passed.

Next Friday, April 10, at 9:30, we had scheduled our annual children's Easter party here in our dining room. It was always a fun morning of egg-hunting, group games, and snacks.

Any day with ice cream is a good day. I'm pretty sure I have the blessing of my authorities when I say that.

A few years ago, a grateful family donated a soft-serve ice cream maker to our Home. It's been a blessing for celebrations like the first day of spring, cruise w...

One of my favorite parts of spring is the the vast number of little things. Baby things--animals, leaves, buds, plants.

Most things start out small and grow, and spring is a celebration of the little life surrounding us. That's why spring is the season of hope--there is...
