|THE NEW A.D.
It’s that same spirit of learning and teaching that drives Lu in her new role as Activities Director. Speaking of learning, she’s been able shadow the legendary AD Sue Arneson, and is already near to completing the lineup for next season’s shows. Moreover, as many of you know, she undertook a survey about residents’ interests.
Lu shared with us the survey results…
One of the big “winners” in the voting was for a Murder Mystery Dinner Show and Lu has already got one planned. There was also interest in Chair Yoga, Corn Hole and a Book Club.
We were also interested to learn of the park’s music preferences:
TOP FIVE: Country came in first, followed by music of the ‘70s, then ‘60’s, ‘50’s, and Rock. BOTTOM FIVE: R&B, Jazz, Disco, Hip Hop and Rap.
We also know that Lu is planning a new, expanded printed version of the Silveridge Sun. Meanwhile, we will keep you updated over the summer via the online edition of the Sun as to the event schedule for next season. While the Activities Office will be closed, you’ll see Lu around the park until mid-May, when she and Ed go to their granddaughter’s graduation at U of A before heading back to Ouincy for the summer.
And lastly, when we asked Lu our favorite question, the one about the best advice she ever got, she responded with what has to be the perfect answer for an Activities Director, saying,
“Be the reason someone smiles today.”
Lu added, “We don’t know what troubles or worries each person carries, but if we can make them smile, we will have lightened their load for a moment.”
