CELEBRATE THE SEASON…

It’s party season once more and this year we will have two separate serving techniques. Our apartment party menu on December 16th will be a “passed” menu. The hors d’oeuvres will be served to each guest, right at their table. Party number two on December 17th for our Studio and Residential Care folks and family members, will have a buffet style set up – certainly with lots of holiday helpers to assist all!

Take at look at this year’s appetizing menu!

QUILTS GALORE

We have a very busy lady (one of many) at Schooner Estates. Doris Robbins has been a resident here since November 2013. A former tailor and dress shop owner, “Dee R’o” in Rumford, she has brought her sewing skills and is now hand quilting for the first time. With her energy and enthusiasm, Doris is decorating our Residential Care living room with wall quilts and table runners. Come visit and see what’s next!
