Nursing Home News

by Suzanne Griffin

Once again the residents had a fun-filled week of activities at the nursing home.

We started our week off with Sunday School on Sunday morning with Mr. Charles, and members from Macedonia Free Will Baptist Church were with us that afternoon.

Monday morning Ms. Mae Adkins was with us for Bible Study. Monday afternoon the residents enjoyed turning paint sticks into jack-o'-lanterns. We then took the jack-o'-lanterns and made a Halloween pot that sits on the piano for everyone to enjoy. Monday evening Mt. Zion Fellowship came to share with us.

Tuesday morning we played bingo, and we had a time of reminiscing that afternoon.

Members from Colquitt First Baptist came for church on Wednesday morning, and the firemen came Wednesday afternoon. The Colquitt Fire Department came to share about fire safety with the residents. They also brought the fire truck for us to see. No matter how old we get there is something about seeing and hearing the fire truck. We want to say a big thank you to everyone who has a part in our fire department; you always do a great job.

Thursday morning we had another round of bingo, along with Wheel of Fortune that afternoon. Friday morning we enjoyed having Miss Gayle Grimsley singing for us.

There is nothing like a little competition, and that is just what we had on Friday afternoon as the residents were seeing who could win at bean bag toss.

We always enjoy having "The Blessed" singing for us as well as having our family and friends visiting with us on Saturday.
