Holiday Fun at Oak Park

December 27th, 2018

At Oak Park Senior Living, our tenants love holiday fun and giving back to the community. Several tenants got together to make holiday cards for the children at Gillette Children’s Hospital. The tenants have made this an annual event. Not only do they get to do a fun project, but they are bringing a bit of holiday fun and cheer to children that are not able to be home for the holidays.

 

On December 12th, Oak Park held its annual holiday party. Tenants and their families enjoyed festive music and fabulous food prepared by our talented kitchen staff. Everyone young and old had a fun evening spent with family and friends.

In the afternoon, the Squires Band came to entertain us with Oktoberfest music. As you can see from the pictures, everyone had a great time singing and clapping along. There were quite a few residents up on their feet and dancing! Of course, what would an Oktoberfest celebration be without beer?

PROST!!! (That’s German for cheers.)
