Christmas & New Year Festivities on Campus
As we bring 2016 to a close we share this festive season with many around campus! Activities started off decorating the facility, caroling at the sing-a-long and seeing Santa at the Christmas parties. Residents had the chance to send families Christmas cards, make ornaments, get gussied up for glamour shots, and to Elf Yourself! We are looking forward to a great 2017!
Seeland Park Christmas Party
Seeland Park residents enjoyed dinner and entertainment by the Carillon Choir from the Grinnell United Methodist Church at their Christmas Party on December 9th. Resident Ileen Zegers made Christmas stockings for everyone in attendance! Over 376 pounds of non-perishable food items were donated to MICA by Seeland Park residents. View photos on Facebook HERE.
St. Francis Manor Party
St. Francis Manor residents had an excellent time celebrating Christmas on December 15th & 16th. The parties were filled with family, snacks, and presents under the tree. Barb Tinineko shared her wonderful talent by playing piano and leading a few sing-a-longs! The Culinary department made festive food that was quickly eaten! Thanks to Santa for making an appearance and spreading his holiday cheer. Every resident had a present under the tree thanks to staff members. The Activity Directors would like to thank all of the family that came to share this event with their loved one's. More Festive Photos HERE
Shirley Arvidson put together a wonderful sing-a-long on December 2nd in the Social Center. Singers were accompanied by Kathy VanDerPloeg and Jeanette Tisdale. There was a large crowd of St. Francis Manor and Seeland Park residents. The songs were the classic holiday favorites.
