Fun with Birds

Last week residents were up close and personal with beautiful birds brought in by a volunteer. The volunteer shared her pets with us. Each one has a name and their own unique personality. As you can see in the pictures, the birds were very tame and sociable. What a fun experience for our residents.

Corn, Corn, Corn

What did the baby corn say to the Mama Corn?  Where is Pop-Corn?

It was the Annual  Simkin Corn Party on August 28th. Smothered in butter, over 120 cobs of corn were eaten by residents, staff, and volunteers. To test their ‘Corny’ knowledge, trivia questions and riddles were recited by the recreation staff.  The corn was locally grown in Marquette, Manitoba.

White Party

Just Because.  We had a white colored theme party this week on one of the units. There was no significance to the party. It was just a colored themed party. Everyone dressed up in the color white.

Some of the “Minute to Win it” games we played were; Tiolet Paper Skirt, Blind Fold cotton ball challenge where you had to move all the cotton balls from one pan to another blind folded, Painting using their mouth only, and Who can fold the most face cloths in a minute.
