The residents told stories about visiting Graceland, TN and watched a virtual tour of Graceland during the Elvis party! The residents also listened to his classic songs, played fun trivia about Elvis and had some delicious snacks! In fact, since Elvis Presley loved bananas and peanut butter so much, we had homemade banana pudding and peanut butter cookies at the party to celebrate!

Olympics Party! Time to Celebrate!

Today, the residents enjoyed a party celebrating not only their Olympic medals and activities from Windsor Gardens, but they also cheered on team USA in Tokyo. Even though both Olympic events (Tokyo & Windsor Gardens) have come to an end, it was a fun and high- spirited time! The food was colorful and classically themed. Different colored cupcakes formed the Olympic rings, golden Oreos & fruit roll-ups became gold medals, and vanilla ice cream cones with peaches and strawberries became Olympic torches! Plenty of Olympic themed food to go around!
