Today was Cathy Chapin’s Birthday. We had collected cards for her, a bouquet of roses from staff and were ready to have birthday cake. Cathy was ill and unable to attend. We sent the basket of cards and the flower arrangement with Larry. The cakes are in the freezer waiting for her return. Everyone sang “Happy Birthday” to Cathy and Roy Darby recorded the singing.

Lee – Thank you for your support. As Activity Directors, we do ask that you allow us some time off. When we attend church services, please do not ask work related questions or request information. Office hours are 9 – 4, Monday through Friday, and we do close for lunch. When we are working at 7 or 8 am we are trying to complete a task without interruption. When we are at lunch, we have people walk by and say, “I hate to interrupt your lunch, BUT”, you have interrupted. What you don’t realize is that four or five people may have done the same thing. We ask that you be patient and allow us some time off.
