Celebrate life!

Gosh, I can’t believe a whole year has flown by since I wrote about our last golf outing. What a year it has been! We have very active residents and families who give credence to our “celebration of life” philosophy here at St. Monica’s.

We have always been blessed with loving and caring families, but this year we really have witnessed that family members are really participating in our events – much to everyone’s delight. What am I talking about? When we host a tea party, it is not uncommon for sons, daughters and the grandkids to join us. Want to take a walk in the park, no need to leave our grounds, we have 42 beautiful acres where family members walk hand in hand with their mom or dad. Exercise class, always fun, we have family members joining and laughing along. We have football families, church families, walking families, dining families, game show families, care playing families, etc.

I personally was delighted last year, at our golf outing, where we had two, three generational golfing families. One of them was Russ Kortendick where his son and grandsons made up a foursome. Much to everyone amazement and delight Russ Sr. showed everyone up by making the longest putt and taking home the prize! What a day to remember for him!

Last year’s proceeds built our SPA, this year’s golf outing proceeds go toward a new car to transport people to doctors’ visits. Download the registration form for this year’s outing on September 22.
