The weather is get- ting warmer and the sun is shin- ing brighter with each passing day. The staff at Sunshine Haven has been busy too! Last week was exciting with the celebration of National C.N.A. Week. The rest' of the staff helped out by making a fun week and then on last Thursday, we had Hot Dog/Hot Links/Sausage Roast with all the fixings in honor of these wonderful caregivers. We also had some contests and games that they participated in to make the day even more memorable. Prizes were given out and everyone had a really great time. This week we have had some visitors interested in bringing their loved ones to Sunshine Ha- ven and we are super excited about the possibilities of getting some new residents. Remember if you have a Eleanor Roosevelt once said, "Beautiful young people are ac- cidents of nature, but beautiful old people are works of art." We have the most beautiful people here at Sunshine Haven. Their beauty radiates far beyond ordi- nary. It is a beauty /hat says, "I am alive, this is my life!" We are happy to be a part Of so many wonderful people's lives. And as Ralph Waldo Emerson said, "As we grow old...the beauty steals inward." Stop by and come help us make one our wonderful residents smile. We can always use some volunteers. Our Activities Direc- tor can help get you set up as one, just ask for Susan Palofiaarez.
