“Love American Style” was the theme for our 20th annual friends and family day. Our annual day is a time to give back to the community, residents and supporters as well as open our doors to families and guests who want to become familiar with our facility and our services. The morning rain did not hinder our party as the staff moved the celebration to the inside of our facility. The halls were alive with the sounds of laughter from visiting children and vivacious greetings and big hugs from family members meeting the staff and new friends.
Our staff greeted all with warm smiles and offered guests Generations at Columbus Park thermos, pens, magnets, and an entry to win White Sox tickets. Guests also enjoyed live entertainment with the band Next Generation, and a DJ that spun tunes that had everyone dancing and singing along. Children enjoyed face painting and a duck fishing game which everyone was a winner and received a small prize.
As the afternoon approached- the sun made an appearance and guests and residents enjoyed the rays and cool breeze on our patio. They also enjoyed chicken, hot dogs, and an assortment of sides and beverages.
As the event came to a close everyone commented on how much they enjoyed the event. Visiting families were impressed with the facility and were happy they were able to enjoy the day with their loved ones.
Thank you to all the volunteers and staff who made this a successful day. Also thank you to the families, old and new friends who visited. See you next year!
