Celebrating the Winter Season at The Riverside in Manhattan!
On December 4th, we begin our holiday celebrations with a Hanukkah Luncheon. Our residents will be serenaded by the voices of young children from The Manhattan Day School. This annual event is filled with music with a holiday spirit, delicious latkes, and a special holiday message from our resident Rabbi. If you are visiting the Riverside on the 4th at 12:00 p.m., stop on by to enjoy this special event! Later that night, we will light the Menorah to celebrate the Festival of Lights in our community.
Christmas Shopping at Target
On Wednesday, December 12th, we will be travelling to Target to do some much-needed Christmas shopping. The trip will leave the Riverside at 10:00 a.m. and will be returning around 2:00 p.m. Our residents will have an opportunity to bask in the glow of the holidays, as they navigate the aisles of Target, decorated in the colors of the season. This is a reminiscence program to help promote memories of Christmas times of the past. On our return trip we will take in the sights of New York City; including the tree at Rockefeller Center, the windows on 5th Avenue and the Christmas lights throughout the borough.
Christmas Party Celebration
Our grand party will be held on Thursday, December 20th. Come and join our Residents, as they await a visit from Santa, while enjoying holiday songs from our amazing artist, Tiffany. This event is filled with all things Christmas, from Christmas cookies to holiday beverages and even our annual Ugly Christmas Sweater Contest put on by the staff at The Riverside! Christmas at The Riverside is always a fun event, we invite you to come and enjoy the day with our residents as they celebrate this wonderful holiday filled with family and friends.
