On Thursday, Dec. 11 we had the pleasure of a visit from students at Woodlawn and Prospect Elementary Schools.
We celebrated Thanksgiving this past Saturday with friends and family. The turnout was great for our Thanksgiving dinner. This was a good time for everyone who was able to share in the occasion with us. Thank you to the families for providing such a variety of delicious desserts to share. Hope to see you all again in a couple weeks for our Christmas party! Have a Happy Holiday!
Today residents enjoy making and eating a hearty beef chili. We had to use a couple of different ingredients than we were use too in chili like corn and salsa. Didn't matter, the chili turned out great and the residents really enjoyed it. Some came looking for seconds!
Trick-or-Treat night was a huge success thanks to all the staff and residents who helped out; and to all the children who came out to enjoy free candy. The residents had a wonderful time passing out candy and seeing all the different costumes that the children were wearing this year as they wondered our halls.
The sun was shining bright on this wonderful day. The tents were up and the tables were set. Families filled the seats. I think we may need to go a little bit bigger next year. Musical entertainment was provided this year by Matt Young. Jimmy T. Clown ventured throughout doing magic tricks and balloon art. The kitchen provided great food and the Activity department served it.
Like any Baby-Boomer born in the 50's, Dandy Don grew up following the many adventures of his western heroes on Saturday morning TV. Many of hours were spent in front of their black and white TV watching Roy Rogers,Dale Evans, Hop along Cassidy, Gene Autry and of course Clayton Moore as the Lone Ranger. He was given a guitar from his older brother and he began to play. Dandy Don began his solo career in 2009.
Liberty Nursing Facility of Mansfield will be hosting Trick or Treat again for one night at our facility on October 29th from 6-7pm. Our residents will be passing out candy to our little trick or treaters. The residents enjoy seeing all the children dressed in their costumes. It should be a lot fun so we hope you can join us.
We would like to "Thank" the Community Band members that came to our facility last night, August 25, and performed for our residents. The resident really enjoy the music. We even had a few "movers & shakers" in the crowd. It was a good time for everyone. We are glad they came in to perform and look forward to having them back next year.
Monday August 4th, a large group of residents, family members, and staff attended the Richland County Fairgrounds for the Ageless Beauty Contest. This years Liberty King was Norman Maines and Queen was Lillie Mae Davis.
Last Saturday, August 26, we had our "Craft & Car" here at Liberty Nursing Center of Mansfield. There were venders, crafters, and cars to share. We were lucky enough that the weather held out for us and it turned out to be a nice day. Trophies were awarded to drivers for different things, like residents choice or best paint.
