The weather was good for November so a lot of Westview people were out and about. If you didn't get out we were doing our usual mornings and afternoons and with treats of course.
Cards are played on Tuesday afternoon at 2:00 p.m., we can always use a few more players. Bingo is played a couple of times a month and exercises are three times a week.
On the 3rd the UCC Circle met at 1:30 p.m.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from Westview Estates.

Jean Marquart celebrated her birthday on Sunday night, the 6th. Her family came with maid-rites, salads and birthday cake for all of us.
Lloyd Smith had a birthday on the 1st so on the 10th Jonathan May came and entertained us at 4 p.m. He is a comedy magician, what a fun time with crowd participation. After the show was over we all enjoyed pizza and beer from our local brewery and cup cakes.
On the 13th the Harold & Pat Petersen family came for their annual soup supper at Westview for all the tenants, volunteers and friends. If you went away still hungry it was your own fault.
On Veteran's Day we had a program in honor of our Veterans. Every year we have a table out for pictures of our tenants and relatives that served for our country. Jeanne Hoeppner came and played the piano as we sang some patriotic songs. Janet Schildroth came on the 14th and gave an interesting program.
Winter is coming so if you like to curl up with a good book you better check out the book club.
A lot of people got to enjoy Thanksgiving with family and friends so that is always fun.
You will have to come and check out our beautiful plant. It is a Mandavilla. Barb Winterroth had it on their deck, so needed a place for it. My green thumb is not the greatest so it will be up to our TLC plant care takers Rosie and Mae Jean to keep it alive.
Last month there was a error on the title of the books that we donated to the library. The correct title is Heaven is for Real.
I guess I have covered just about everything for this month. December is really busy, so hopefully the weather stays good for everyone so they can get to where they need to go.
Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from all your friends at Westview Estates.
