John Lennon’s Birthday Celebration
We kick off October with our tribute to John Lennon. Almost all our residents love the Beetles and Evan Getz, our amazing musician, and an expert on all things Beetle. He is putting on a special live performance with songs and photos of John Lennon’s life. The Event begins at 2:30 p.m. on Friday, October 9th. It will be held on the hallways of 2nd, 3rd, 7th, and 12th floors. Social distancing will be observed and residents will come away knowing more about the life of John Lennon and his music.
Breast Cancer Awareness Celebration
Over the years we’ve celebrated Breast Cancer Month with much fanfare at the Riverside. This coming October will not be any different. On October 23rd everyone will be decked out in Pink, highlighting our survivors, both staff and residents, who have tackled this dreadful disease and won! The Riverside will be awash in all different shades of pink, and we will be having our usual fundraiser, in which all proceeds will be donated to the Breast Cancer Society. Be on the lookout for photos and videos of our special day!
Halloween Costume Competition
This year, we are sure everyone is wondering what Halloween will look like. Even though we know that it will be a bit different, we will continue with our usual trend of having our costume contest for both staff and residents. This time it will not be in the Solarium but on the units. We will be strolling around to judge the best costume on Friday, October 30th. The entire month of October we will be preparing for this event, the RT staff will be assisting residents in making their costumes and the staff will be busy creating fabulous, outlandish costumes in hopes of being the winner! We will be decorating pumpkins and the décor at the Riverside will be adorned with festive Halloween decorations. The contest will begin at 11:00 a.m. on the 30th and the winner will be announced at 2:30 p.m. that same day! There will be lots and lots of photos to view on our Facebook page. It will be fun times at the Riverside this October, stay tuned for photos!
