The Riverside Holiday Season, December 2022

At the Riverside, we sweep away the leaves of fall and welcome winter in with holiday cheer! We welcome our residents and their families to join the Recreation Department as we deck the halls of The Riverside and usher in the spirit of the holidays. We begin the festivities with a Tree Lighting Ceremony on December 1st, 2022, in the Solarium. We will light up the magnificent 7-foot tree with Christmas carols and holiday treats. Residents and their families will help light up the tree and the whole of The Riverside by singing popular Christmas carols led by The Riverside Choir. In addition to our kick-off event, we will also have holiday-themed programs like musical performances from Richard Frank, Memory of John Lennon (discussion group), Juilliard performances, Sue Ellen Etsy’s musical ensemble, Art w/ Susan, and Hot Cocoa and Caroling!


December Highlight is Gift from God Performance

The Gift from God Company is coming to perform a Christmas-related performance which includes dancing, singing, and an interactive segment with the audience. The audience members will see performers dressed up in colorful and festive costumes. The performance will take place on December 7th, 2022, in the Solarium on the penthouse floor. Therapeutic Recreation staff will assist in escorting any resident interested in participating in the program. The resident holiday party will take place in the Solarium on December 21st, 2022. Residents and families can come to the Solarium to enjoy Christmas cookies and cupcakes. In addition, residents will receive the first portion of their Christmas gifts, building up excitement for Christmas day! Our residents should be on the lookout for their sleigh because Santa’s elves are coming throughout The Riverside to deliver a special Christmas gift to all our residents.


Santa and his Elves

On December 25th, residents can expect a visit from Santa and their elves on Christmas Day. In addition to the Resident Holiday Party, our residents can participate in holiday programs such as the Hanukkah celebration, the Celebration of Kwanza event, and the Pre-New Year’s Eve Bash. We welcome our residents and their families to participate in our therapeutic program and events. All of our scheduled programs and events are on the special events calendar. On behalf of the Therapeutic Recreation department at The Riverside, we wish all our residents, staff, and their families a happy holiday season and a blessed New Year!
