Sharon and I want to thank you for a great season of Food, Fellowship and Fun!
Thanks to Armand Gagnier, our MC, and all the Silveridge talented performers, the Variety show was a big hit! Don Staker made DVD’s of the show and they will be for sale for $10.00 next season. Fortunately, we only had to cancel a few events. To all of you talented Crafters and Club leaders, we will be looking forward to your handiwork at our Residents Craft Fair next season. Bingo will have lots of money to give away starting in November! If you had Boogie tickets to Johnny K , Dancing with the Stars or the Volunteer Dinner please keep your tickets for an exchange to another event of equal value. Watch for my Summer Newsletter and the Ticket Order list online in August.. You will love what I have planned for you next season! You will be able to pre-order your tickets just like previous years.
We do have so much to be thankful for. Let’s embrace the memories that we made this season. Many friendships were formed, lots of delicious meals were made and served by Jerry, Tracy and volunteers. Our volunteer leaders helped us grow in physical, mental and spiritual health. Many newcomers were welcomed with personal visits and gifts. Thank you for all your support with buying tickets for the entertainment. I could not book the quality entertainment without your support in purchasing tickets. It’s a Win -Win! A shout out to Rhonda; our GM, and all the staff who serve us to make Silveridge our Happy Home.
It is easy to take for granted all our blessings. Some of you grew up during the depression and World War II. Mom reminded me that items like gas, sugar, coffee, chocolate, and money were in short supply. People stayed home because they could not afford the gas to drive. Babysitters were the older siblings watching the younger ones. My parents took us with them to dances and we fell asleep on the benches! As an adult, my appreciation grows deeper every year as I contemplate how lucky we are to have our freedom and the amenities that freedom brings!
As we “hunker down” this summer let’s embrace what we have and enjoy the simple pleasures of family , faith and fun. As for me, I plan on reading some good books and talking to the loons while eating chocolates! Stay healthy, safe and hopeful. We will communicate through the online newsletter, Silveridge Connect, Silveridge.com, email, messaging and by letter. It’s not goodbye, it’s see you later!
