The first month of 2017 has already gone whizzing by.
Here’s a look at the month that was…
January was a cold one. A good time to catch up on movies old and new. We watched “Concussion,” a nod to the impending Super Bowl, and “Singing in the Rain,” a tribute to fallen actress, Debbie Reynolds. Ceil (Resident), suggested we watch Forrest Gump, and it was a big hit. She also got our adult coloring group to try their hand at drawing, which was so fun! Thanks for being a great neighbor, Ceil!
Our Bible Study group has really grown. Despite our usual Pastor being on a much deserved vacation, we have about a dozen attending now, and may need to move out of the cozy Club Room! And did you see us on the 6 o’clock News for our Project Linus Fundraiser? We had so much fun making our first set of blankets, and giving back to our community; we look forward to this becoming a monthly activity.

Musical performances were given by Rick and Loretta, a local Folk Music Singing Trio, Jan Severson, and the Country Auggies. Stacey in our salon was excited to introduce Mini Mani Mondays, and wrote a piece for this blog about Hair Care and Aging with Dignity. You can read about that here: https://riverpointemoorhead.com/hair-care-and-aging-with-dignity/
Roger Stroh of ReHab 4 Life also visited to host a discussion about fall prevention to a huge group on the 6th. Please read more about this important discussion here: https://riverpointemoorhead.com/fall-prevention-and-safety/
Residents feasted at Blarney Stone, Space Aliens, and Longhorn Steakhouse this month, and our Men’s Group had a successful first outing at the American Legion. They are looking forward to going to Texas Roadhouse at the end of February.
Book Club met to discuss “The Boys in the Boat,” and we had our monthly Community Life meeting, to discuss upcoming events in February, and any concerns the residents had about their community.
Riverton Suites enjoyed special visits from local preschool children, accordion player Claude Wahl and his wife Darlene, and music therapy with Ashley of Music in Motion. Ringo, of course, also stopped by for his monthly visit. Riverton Suites has truly bloomed with the addition of an activity staff person. It has been a wonderful opportunity to keep everyone engaged on a more personal level, and continue to maintain that homelike atmosphere we all so love here at River Pointe.
Looking forward to February?! Remember to like us on Facebook to see all of our fun, upcoming events and pictures.
