  • MILL CREEK SENIOR LIVING COMMUNITY RESIDENTS CELEBRATED AT ANNUAL CHRISTMAS PARTY

    AUTHOR: // CATEGORY: Uncategorized

    Marquette, MI December 16, 2016 Santa Claus visited the Mill Creek Senior Living Community during their Christmas party for residents from assisted living, the memory care unit, and independent living, along with staff and all their families in Marquette today.

    The biggest event of the year for Mill Creek, their Christmas party, saw about 250 people in the Mill Creek Commons area to celebrate Christmas together. Guests enjoyed the big cake, delicious Christmas cookies and hors d’ouevres from the large buffet table.

    Throughout the year, Mill Creek residents participate in a “Caught Caring” program. Every month residents nominate a staff member and then the employee who is caught caring the most throughout the year wins a special “Caught Caring” award, which was given out during the party!

    Everyone loved the photo booth and had a lot of fun posing with props for pictures. The band Playing Jacks played Christmas music for everyone and when Santa Claus came, he brought presents for all of the residents.

    Residents at Mill Creek enjoy a variety of social events and the highly trained staff focuses on helping residents remain as independent and active as possible. If your loved one needs help with every day tasks or if they need memory care, Mill Creek offers a full spectrum of services to assist every individual’s specific needs.

    Call Mill Creek today at 906-225-5512 to set up a tour of the grounds and see how they can help keep your mom and dad safe, independent and happy.

    Gwinn, MI – Gwinn parents, teachers and community members all gathered to clean up Gilbert Elementary School during a Work Bee to prepare for the upcoming school year.

    Many people expressed generosity and community spirit by donating a bit of their time to help make Gilbert better than ever for all the kids here in Gwinn!

    A lot of work was done during the Work Bee on Wednesday. Volunteers painted playground equipment, removed shrubs, added a new sandbox, replanted flowers around the building, spread new woodchips, painted doors, and overall just spruced Gilbert up!

    Gwinn’s new Superintendent Tom Jayne was on hand, and helped the team landscape the front yard of the school.

    Volunteers arrived around 4pm, with many staying until it started getting dark out.

    With all that work, we had some hungry volunteers. Good thing the grill was loaded with hot dogs ready for the hard-working friends. There was plenty of food and great music, and many happy faces helped improved the school for the upcoming year!

     

     

    Thank you to all that came out and supported Gwinn Area Community Schools, the heart of the Model Town!
