Hello October,

Where did summer go? Hard to believe it is fall! Our front porch summer days are coming to end as the cold weather starts setting in!

October is filled with fun Halloween games, Dem Bones Dice Game, Jack-O-Lantern Game and Halloween crafts. To end the month, we will have a Halloween Bingo Party! Be sure to wear your best costume! We will be having a pumpkin decoration contest where our staff does the decorating, and the residents will vote on them! Throughout the month we celebrate October birthdays, Healthcare Foodservice Workers Week, Licensed Practical Nurse’s Week, Pastoral Appreciation and Breast Cancer Awareness.

Trick-or-Treaters are invited to come to the Anamosa Care Center on Saturday, October 30th from 2:30-3:30 pm. Instead of entering the building residents can view the kids through their room windows. Our residents will have treat baggies that kids can pick up outside of their windows.

Happy Halloween!

Brooke Etten, Recreation Program Director
