National Lighthouse Day
It’s a painting with a twist kind of day! Join us for a painting class like no other. Our very own Maribel will be hosting this special paint night event for our artistic residents. This month’s theme will be nautical in recognition of national lighthouse day.
History FYI: The government recognized the importance of ships at sea in finding safe harbor during fog and storms. Over the years, lighthouses have saved many ships, and an untold number of lives. On August 7th lighthouses became a part of history all over the world, so we will also be making history on this day. Our paint class will begin at 3:00 pm in the activity room; snacks and drinks will be served!
Relaxation Day is a day to kick back and do nothing. Ahhhh! What a great day! Just kidding, we will actually be doing a lot of things to help us relax. We will host a meditation session accompanied by aromatherapy. Sounds of a tropical rainforest rain will serve as the back drop to an amazing afternoon, complimented by our hand massages and scalp stimulation. We will begin relaxing during morning activities beginning at 10:30 am for an hour session, continuing on for our meditation session at 2:00 pm with chair yoga and sensory stimulation activities!
National Radio Day celebrates a great invention that we use almost every single day. The creation of the radio dates back to the late 1800s. History FYI: The radio evolved from the telegraph and the telephone, with wireless telegraph directly contributing to its invention. So on this day, August 20th , we will cranking up the volume of our radios and listening to our favorite tunes while reminiscing on radio talk shows we used to listen to. We will also be chatting about the history of famous radio stations to follow!
