It’s #FeatureFriday and we couldn’t be happier! Betty, Mildred, and Georgia all helped make our Summer S’more party a success! We gathered our graham crackers, chocolate, and marshmellows and made some delicious s’mores! We shared stories of summer trips and summer activities we used to do. It was a fun stroll down memory lane!

What an incredible time at the Union County Museum! Dan, Jim, Iris and many others were enamored by the historic exhibits. We learned about the Oregon Trail, cowboys, general stores, and many other neat facts about Union County. Its always special to learn about the community that we live in.

It’s time for a #MontessoriMoment! Blanche, Alice, and a dozen others gathered to make some chocolate dipped strawberries! We started by melting the white chocolate and milk chocolate into two separate containers. We then prepared the strawberries by cutting off the stems. After placing the strawberries on sticks we dipped them in the chocolate and let them cool down. Of course, they were absolutely delicious! But what makes this event all the more sweeter is these strawberries were planted by our very own residents. That is what Montessori is all about. Being involved in a process that brings meaning and purpose to our lives. #Montessori #SeniorLiving

Dorla, Mary, Dan, and others hit the scenic trail at Catherine Creek for #NationalRelaxationDay! We took advantage of the cool weather and enjoyed a delightful picnic by the river. After enjoying some delicious food under the shade, we took a stroll down memory lane and talked about past traveling adventures!

We are so fortunate to have such incredible family support at Grande Ronde Retirement. We recently put on a patio game event where we were joined by many of our resident’s sons and daughters. Lamar, Maureen, Dan, and others participated in a fun, yet intense game of Hillbilly Toss. Once again, our residents proved time really does fly when you’re having fun! #SonsAndDaughtersDay

It’s #InternationalBeerDay and what better way to celebrate than with the opening of our new bar the, The Tip & Sip, at Grande Ronde Retirement. Jen, Tom, Joe, Mary, and Jane, along with over forty other residents, had a blast at our weekly happy hour. Smiles and laughter filled the lobbies as we gathered for some great times. Keep your eye out for next week’s #MargarettaMadness event.

Milton, Vicky, and other science buffs recieved the show of a lifetime in our own backyard, thanks to our EOU Chemistry Club. They filled latex balloons with various chemicals and compounds and then added a little fire 🔥. The different chemical mixtures created quite the variety of beautiful colors, leaving our science buffs in awe! Needless to say, the chemistry club sure “lit it up” for us! Thank you EOU Chemistry club for sharing your science secrets with us! #FeatureFriday #SeniorLiving
