Well we have certainly lived up to our reputation as the party palace this month. Not only did we have other things going on we had seven birthdays to celebrate. It was my birthday on the 7th and I can honestly say that I am 39 again so we had pecan and cinnamon rolls with our morning coffee. Marilyn Storjohann's birthday was the 9th and for afternoon coffee break we had cupcakes and root beer floats after our exercises. Kathryn Ellenberger's was on the 15th so she had a party with her family in the activity room on the 19th to celebrate her 99th birthday. May 22nd was Sandi Beem's big day so Pastor Mike and Sheryl Campbell entertained us on the 21st. We always enjoy having them come to Westview, so after that while everyone was in the dining room we had a pizza party. Ruth Emmett's birthday was on the 27th so on the 23rd we had cake and ice cream. Dorothy Akkerman's birthday was on the 24th so pecan and cinnamon rolls were enjoyed by everyone at our morning coffee, but Don Ehrig was the one that really celebrated. On the 31st Linda Ehrig brought cupcakes and cookies in the morning and after lunch family and friends came for coffee in the lounge and after bingo Paul & Jan Ehrig brought ice cream, cake and bars and on June 1st we had birthday cake again.
On the 2nd we had an Alzheimers education program. On the 3rd we had a Cinco de Mayo party in the dining room. At 2:30 p.m. on the 4th we had a Caregivers Support Group which is very informative. Several people got to go out for Mother's Day so that is always nice.
Book Club met on the 16th and for our Night Out on the Town, we went to Jack & Arnies. Our Bible Study Group enjoyed the afternoon at Janet Schildroth's home.
Some people got to spend Memorial Day with family and friends or went to the services at the Memorial building and cemetery. Pastor Love came at 10:15 a.m. on the 30th for our monthly worship. This is so nice for the ministers to do this for us.
Sugar & Spice came to entertain us on the 30th, we always enjoy listening to them. They have a new CD out. We had a lot of good times this month but we also had some sad times. Our condolences certainly goes out to Mae Jean Hoeppner for the loss of her daughter Claudia Hirl and to the Boege family for the loss of our dear friend and Westview family member Ray Boege. They will both be greatly missed.
We have really been busy this month with our regular things to do like exercises, cards, bingo and our meals from Truncks, Christies and the Corner Cafe. Last month the fish were jumping out of the aquarium. This month the squirrels are swinging in our bird feeder.
Maybe it will be a little calmer around here in June and maybe not. Come and visit us anytime. Take care.
