Residents to host Fall Carnival


At Deseret Health and Rehab, residents enjoyed many activities this week. The Activity Department offers a variety of activities each week to meet the residents’ interests and needs.

We will be having our annual fall carnival from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m., Friday, Oct. 25, 2013.

There will be games, prizes, candy, the spook house and the cake walk for kids of the valley.

We wish to thank Tim Lamprecht for the kind donation of candy for the kids at the carnival.

Games throughout the week provided fun and laughter. On Sunday afternoon, five residents played Dominoes with Truth Karstoft winning. On Monday afternoon, four residents played Yahtzee with Edith Donnis winning. On Wednesday afternoon, nine residents played Bingo, and on Friday afternoon, nine residents played Bingo. Charlotte Gibbons and Dora Martin won Four Corners. Frank Jereb and Edith Donnis won Blackouts. Our Bingo helpers were Dawna Erickson, Gloria Rackness, Lila Worden, and Betty Dean.
