September started off with our usual activities and on the 3rd Dennis Perry came to entertain us. He sings and plays the guitar and is very good. He will be back on Thursday Oct. 18th at 2:30 p.m. and he asked us to make out a list of requests of songs we wanted to hear so he will be singing a lot of oldie goldies. Feel free to stop in and enjoy the music with us.
On the 9th Ruth Holst's grandchildren came and served scratch cupcakes and punch for her birthday and then on Tuesday the 11th the day of her birthday, her daughter-in-law made coffee cake for our morning coffee.
Lavina Rohach had a birthday on the 10th. She had a fun day going out with friends and on the 11th she treated us all to pizza and drinks for supper. Randy & Denise served us.
It was Lois Knaack's birthday on the 20th and her family treated us to cupcakes and ice cream. Happy Birthday to each of you and may you have good health and many more birthdays.
So you can see why we are called the Party Palace and speaking of Party Palace, Sugar & Spice loves to come here and sing and play for us. They came on the 24th around 3:30 p.m. and then at 5 p.m. we served everyone vegetable soup and angel food cake and they also will be back on Tuesday, Oct. 23 at 3:30 p.m.
And if you like music Neal, Kenny, Jeanne & Jan will be here to entertain us on Oct. 25th at 1:30 p.m. Feel free to join us.
Whoops I almost forgot. How many of you remember Al Bell when you were in school? How he would travel to different countries and then come to the school all dressed up like they would dress in the country he visited and tell us all about it. Well his two daughters came to Westview on Thursday, Sept. 13th to promote a book and DVD of his travels.
This was put on by the Reinbeck library. Coffee and bars were served to a good crowd not only Westview people but a lot from the community. This was very interesting.
Saturday, Sept. 22 our dear friend and Westview family member, Martha Cheeseman, passed away at the Grundy County Memorial Hospital so our sincere condolences goes out to Harry and his family. Martha was a real trooper and hung in there even when we knew she didn't feel good. She is certainly missed around here.
Was wondering if anyone lost a ring some time ago in the parking lot at Westview. Stop in at the office and see if you can describe it or call 345-6761.
Also the Westview dining room will be open for parents to bring your children for tricks or treats on Wednesday, Oct. 31 from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Guess this will be all for this month but remember winter is just around the corner and the way the summer was who knows what winter will be like. The coffee pot is always on and the cards or bingo are always handy. Stop in and join us or we can even give you a tour of our facilities.
