Christmas Party Thursday

Saratoga Care Center


The facility will be having our annual Resident Christmas Party on Thursday, December 17, 2015, at 5 p.m. , All family members of our residents should plan to attend, as well as volunteers and friends of Saratoga Care Center. Santa Claus, aka Jeff Streeter, will pass out presents to every resident purchased and wrapped by the Kiwanis.

Games provided fun and laughter throughout the week. On Tuesday morning, three residents played Yahtzee with Housekeeping/Laundry Supervisor, Tondi Johnson, with Pat Rust winning. On Wednesday afternoon and Friday afternoons, residents played Bingo. Barbara Plummer, Pat Rust, Elaine Burge, and Truth Karstoft won Four Corners. Truth Karstoft and Barbara Plummer won Blackouts. Volunteers were Lila Worden, Dawna Erickson, Gloria Rakness, Elder Coleman, and Elder Maake. On Thursday morning, residents played Uno with Housekeeping/Laundry Supervisor, Tondi Johnson, with Pat Rust winning. On Saturday afternoon, three residents played Yahtzee with Barbara Reed winning.

On Sunday afternoon, members of the Encampment Community Choir gave residents a sample of their Christmas concert. The Presbyterian Church gave our church service and offered communion. Reverend Miki Laws and Pastor Niccolls led the service. Doris Davis played Christmas music on her key board.

On Monday afternoon, five residents made a trip to the Encampment Thrift Shop with Jake Michelsen for their choice of free Christmas presents. We would like to thank the Thrift shop for this.

On Tuesday afternoon, residents helped decorate our Christmas tree in the dining room.

On Wednesday morning, five residents had their hair done, and 10 residents had their finger nails done by Georgia Schroer, Shaylee Smith, and Janice Kerpan.

On Thursday afternoon, residents went shopping at the Family Dollar. Following that, we had our monthly birthday party, although no residents had birthdays in December.

We wish to thank Lila Worden for the soda for Bingo, Ruth Brock for Bingo prizes, and Bill Baker for the quarters for Bingo. We also want to very much thank Jade Mccarthy and Judy and Bill Riggles for the financial donations for resident Christmas presents. We will be going shopping for resident Christmas presents very soon. Any individual or organization in the valley wishing to make financial donations for resident Christmas presents would be appreciated.

We greatly appreciate the continued support of our volunteers. Anyone wanting to become a volunteer, contact Tom Mansfield, Activity Director, at the facility.
