Happy Saturday! Today was filled with fun! Polka music to our morning stretch and flex and we continued the German theme to a tutorial of the Polka Hop! Some of the residents tried it- mostly those who were clapping along were laughing with us as we tried to get the beat down! Its a little trickier than the Polka dance most of us know. We also did a little arm chair travel to Germany which sparked a few conversations about residents travels to the country! Our afternoon was filled with Bingo games and sing a longs. Enjoy the photos!

An announcement for our Catholic Residents and families to place in your calendars...
On November 21, Fr. Chad VanHoose, our associate pastor from All Saints Catholic Church will have Mass with Anointing of the Sick at the Fountains.
Here is a brief description of the Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick:
The Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick is one of the seven Sacraments of the Church. Any member of the Catholic faithful who is in danger of death, becomes seriously ill, is injured, or is suffering from a decline due to advanced age is encouraged to receive this Sacrament. One need not be at the point of death. For example, one ought to request this Sacrament before undergoing serious surgery or any procedure where there may be some risk either because of advanced age or because of the invasiveness of the procedure. The Sacrament can be repeated, even during the same illness, when the illness is prolonged or when it becomes more serious.
Thank you. Please contact an activities staff member or Pastor Mari Strong with any questions.
