Celebrating the 4th!

Residents, staff, and family members gathered outdoors to Celebrate the 4th with a tailgate-style cook-out. The maintenance guys fired up the grill as the rest of us worked diligently to get the elders out and fix plates before the rain set in.  We had hamburgers, chips and dip, watermelon, smoked ham salad, cookies, and cupcakes. It was a great day!

Panama City Beach Outing

On Thursday May 21st, our ladies went on an outing to Panama City. What an awesome day to be at the beach! This group of ladies had a great lunch at Schooners, the last local beach club of PCB. There was a nice breeze blowing through as they looked out on the water and enjoyed lunch. Our waitress and their staff were more than accommodating.

Afterwards, the ladies wanted to ride down to one of the marinas to see if anyone had brought in any fish and to just sit around watch the boats and enjoy the sun, so we headed for Capt’n Anderson’s Marina where they sat on the ” Docks of the Bay ” wasting time. Lucky for us a boat had just came in from a day of fishing and they invited our ladies to watch them unload and take pictures with the fish so the ladies could come back with their own “fish stories.”

They (the guys with the Charter boat) also took pictures of the fish with one of our willing ladies and told her she would be famous now. In one of our pictures, you can see a school of fish swimming on top of the water. The ladies were  amazed to watch that school of fish.

Thank you to the guys with the Charter Boat out of Tennessee and thank you Duane Barber for recommending Schooner’s–the ladies loved it!

The event featured sessions that tied spirituality to numerous aspects of long-term care and health care, from clinical care to legislative involvement and the impact of spirituality in the workplace.
