Greetings from the Kitchen,

We are on the 5th week of our fall/winter menu and it seems to meet with approval.

The Family Winter Celebration is December 12th from 5:00 to 6:30 pm. We look forward to this every year and hope to see you all there.

If you would like to eat with your loved one on Christmas Day please let the kitchen know ahead of time so we can assure there is enough seating. This meal is $7.00 per person and can be paid the day of.

Tis’ the season for sugar and Spice! December is full of holidays celebrating cookies. The first week of December is Cookie Cutter Week. The week of December 16–20 is Cookie Exchange Week. The 4th is Cookie Day, the 12th is Gingerbread House Day, and the 14th is Gingerbread Decorating Day. No wonder December is heralded as “the most wonderful time of the year”! Baking and exchanging sweets have been winter solstice traditions for hundreds of years.

Employees and family members, if they wish, will be doing a cookie exchange Dec. 11th. This has been a huge success in the past and we hope for the same outcome this year!

Have a wonderful and safe Christmas and a Happy New Year!


Sally Schneider, Dietary Supervisor
