February 2018 Newsletter
Valentine’s Day is associated with love and romance. No one knows for sure, but it is thought that Valentine’s Day is named after one of the three Saint Valentines from the early Catholic Church. In the 1300s the English began to celebrate love on Valentine’s Day after poet Geoffrey Chaucer wrote a love poem connecting the two.
We are looking forward to our annual Resident Valentine’s steak and shrimp dinner. It will be served on Thursday, February 15th because Ash Wednesday is on the 14th. Residents will continue the tradition of voting for king and queen and the winners will be crowned at the dinner.
We would like to take a moment to wish our residents and families a Happy Valentine’s day. We hope your day is filled with love and sweet treats!
I invite you to join us for our 55 & Older Chili/Soup Supper on Wednesday, February 7th, serving 5:00 – 5:45 pm. This is open to the community and you may call the office at 563.852.5001 to RSVP. ~ Karen Holmes, Nurse Manager
