Earlier this week, the group from Intervention House went to the pumpkin patch…they took some great shots near a cornfield (just to keep their “great pumpkin” a secret, I think!)…

03 October 2014 – BBQ for International Day of Older Persons
We celebrated the United Nations International Day of Older Persons this past Wednesday, 01 October with an amazing BBQ…although the weather was a bit cool over the lunchtime, we packed into the Stan Mills Lounge at 375… Country Street and a great time was had by all…Jeff Mills presented a few words of welcome and celebration to the large group on behalf of Mills Community Support…not sure that the lounge was really prepared for the 70 or so people who came to the BBQ but…it was wonderful!
After lunch, Don Cram, President of Lanark Chapter 55, and Jan Watson, a member of the Lanark Chapter board and a Coordinator for Mills Community Support, raised the new Lanark Chapter 55 flag outside at 375 Country Street…while the wind didn’t cooperate, we’re sure that it will wave well in the coming month!!
Many thanks to our excellent Chef, Clem Pelot, our organizer extraordinaire, Barbara Bertrand, our “bean” counter, Lisa Ryan, and the Housing crew led by Tim Dowell who did the heavy lifting…thanks also to Julie, Bonnie and Jeff for pitching in and doing what need doing…the photos tell the tale!
01 October 2014 – The Banjo
While doing the house tour with the ladies on Sunday at the tea and mini-putt, Greg picked up, and pretended to play, Norma and Ian’s banjo.
A few days later, Norma came to the house and brought the banjo with her…She told us that Ian would like Greg to have the banjo if he wanted it.
Well…when Greg came home from the activity centre, and saw the banjo case there, he was THRILLED!!! We took the banjo out of the case and he played with it for awhile, then took it downstairs to put in his room. Norma and Ian are pleased that Greg was so happy with his new instrument…we’re all very grateful for the wonderful gift!! How nice is that??
01 October 2014 – Tea and Mini-Putt with Ian and Norma
On September 7th we were all invited down to Norma & Ian’s house for Tea and a game of mini-putt as they have a putting green in their backyard
Greg really enjoyed putting with Ian while Julie assisted Jody with his …putting. They all enjoyed tea or coffee as well as some delicious homemade snacks. Happy Birthday was in order for Norma (as it was her birthday) and everyone joined in singing a rousing version of the standard song!!
Norma gave each person a candle to blow out at the party which was a very special touch and enjoyed by everyone. Greg went on a tour of the house with Jenn and Marjorie, one of our other neighbours. It was a lovely afternoon with fun had by all…thanks Norma and Ian!!
01 October 2014 – Apple Picking – Hwy 43
Dan and Angela went apple picking at the Kilmarnock Apple orchard on September 20th. They both did a great job picking and Dan enjoyed sampling the apples as he picked. Dan was greeted by a lady and her son when he arrived at the orchard…she greeted Dan and said that she knows Dan as he delivers her EMC to her on his paper route. Dan had a bit of a chat with her before picking apples.
