Grandparents’ Day Ice Cream Social at Elders Inn

This past Sunday, July 17th, Elders Inn celebrated Grandparents’ Day with an ice cream social held in our large patio.  We went all out with a variety of ice cream and yummy toppings such as: walnuts, cookie crumbles, M&Ms, chocolate chips, syrups, and whipped cream.  We even had adorable polka dot cups to put our ice cream in.

The Activity team decorated the event with colorful balloons and festive tablecloths.  We chalked the sidewalk and ground with fun pictures and sayings to encourage others to join in.  Tables were set up with all kinds of games, sidewalk chalk, puzzles, and bubbles to blow!  We also had a Face Painting Station and a Handprint Station, in which residents and family members could do handprint keepsakes to take home.  We even had a dress up area with fun glasses, wigs, and boas to put on for picture taking at the photo station.

Last, but not least, was our entertainment, which was provided by Todd Haemmerle on guitar and vocals. He’s always a champ in encouraging our residents and guests to sing along, truly amazing. A big thank you to all our staff who helped make the event memorable and joyous!
