When Mother Nature Does Not Cooperate, Take the Picnic Indoors

Yesterday was the first day of spring, however we got a day of rain. Our residents were looking forward to this weeks field trip, a picnic in the park under the sun while enjoying the cool breeze of spring, but Mother Nature had other ideas. As not to disappoint our wonderful residents, we thought it would be fun to have a picnic at Fremont Hills in our Community Life Department and call it “Picnic On the Hill” (Fremont Hills). Our Community Life Team put their creative thinking caps on and by 2:00pm yesterday afternoon, the residents walked into a transformed room decorated with red and white picnic table cloths, finger sandwiches, games, prizes, popcorn, lemonade, chocolate chip cookies, and uplifting music to wash the rainy blues away. We are happy to say that it was a full house and residents didn’t mind that it had rained after all. Following the picnic, residents enjoyed an hour of bingo. The best part of the game…. Prizes!
