Residents enjoy dog show


      We are so excited to tell you about the 1st Annual Dog Show that we had this past Friday. Many of our wonderful staff brought their adorable dogs to share with us during the afternoon and it was an excellent afternoon. There were beautiful dogs of every shape and size and they were so well behaved. The dogs ranged from some very young puppies up to mature dogs. We had the opportunity to pet and love all of the dogs and what a joyous time we had with each and every one of them. We thank the special staff who took the time and shared their wonderful pet friends with us for the afternoon.

       Saturday brought “Creamsicle Day” and it was just the perfect day to taste test these delicious treats. By a landslide the favorite was the orange Creamsicle. The tangy orange flavor with the vanilla ice cream is such a taste treat and really hit the spot for the warm afternoon.

         We are sending birthday greetings this week to Jeanette Prins on Aug. 19 and to Lorena Freeman on Aug. 24. We wish you girls each a beautiful day.

        The weather has been so nice and it has been delightful to be able to visit on the porches. There has been lots of company and fun visits. We even had company come from as far away as Arizona this week. We love to visit, share our beautiful views and colorful planters with our guests. And we’d love to see you. Just give us a call and we will welcome the opportunity to spend fun time with friends.

       It was so nice to welcome Pastor Briggs this past Sunday as he shared our worship service with us. It is extra special and meaningful to have the opportunity to worship together on Sundays. We also loved seeing his sweet little dog, Murphy, who came to visit, too. 

      Can you believe the month is half over already? It just seems like time flies anymore, probably because we are very busy. On Wednesday we will be having a game afternoon and we can hardly wait to see what the girls have in store for us. They have such fun imaginations and there is always lots of laughter when we get together.

       Friday will bring our Ice Cream Social Afternoon and these are always great times. There are lots of toppings to choose from and you just can’t go wrong with ice cream. It reminds us of the old saying, “I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!” Do you remember that? It sure takes us back.

        On Saturday afternoon the ladies will gather for a Ladies Social. This is always interesting and informative times as we share and reminisce together. We are surely looking forward to this.

        At press time we were looking forward to Tuesday afternoon as we are planning to gather for a homemade pizza afternoon. This is one of our favorite treats. You just can’t go wrong with delicious, tangy pizza.

       And, this next Wednesday is “Banana Split Day!” The girls have shared that there is a big surprise in store for the afternoon. We can hardly wait to see what it will be, but for sure we will tell you all about it right here next week in the Ashton Gazette. Be sure to check out our Facebook page to see great pictures and our fun times.
