Many of our elderly guests so look forward to our annual Christmas party. I always remember a few years ago, we contemplated cancelling our Christmas party because of bad weather; we decided to call a few of our elderly guests to see what they thought.


Pearl, a lady well into her 90’s, said “OH my, you can’t cancel, I have been looking forward to the party for weeks.” She quietly said “you are my family now.” IT WAS THE BEST PARTY EVER!!!!!
