The Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration
We are looking forward to January and the New Year with such great hope for the future. In January, we will be celebrating The Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day with our Lift Every Voice Sing-a- Long program with some exciting and personalized programs on all units.
Three Kings Celebration
At The Riverside, our Hispanic residents take great pride in their heritage. On January 6th, we will be celebrating Three Kings Day, as we end the holiday season. Three Kings or the Feast of Epiphany, as it is also known, is celebrated in Spain and in Latin American countries. It depicts the time when the three wise men brought gifts to the baby Jesus. We will be recreating the scene with color, music and festivities for our residents. The event starts at 2:30 p.m.and ends at 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday, January 6th.
Hot Chocolate and Pastries Winter Party
What is the best drink for a cold winter’s day? If you guessed hot chocolate, we are sure to agree with you! On Wednesday, January 13th, our residents will drive their winter blues away with our Hot Chocolate and Pastries Party. It will be a time for sharing stories, sampling various hot chocolates and pastries of all kinds. It will be the perfect remedy for those cold January days. The event starts at 2:30 p.m. and ends at 3:30 p.m. on the 5th Floor.
Our destination vacation is a staple here at The Riverside. This January we are happy to say that we are bringing it back…with much fanfare, as we take a virtual journey to Australia! On January 26th, which happens to be Australia Day, we will travel to The Land Down Under. The flight leaves at 2:30 p.m. Our residents will have a chance to taste snacks from Australia and enjoy the sights of the Kangaroo, Koala and listen to native Australian music. We are looking forward to bringing back this once popular program and enjoying our travels.
