Yesterday,  some Clark Meadows Folks took a trip to The Spotted Duck Creamery in Penn Yan, NY.

They had so much fun!  Marty said, "can we come here again next week?"  Talk about making the most of these remaining Summer Days!  

At our recent Resident Activities meeting, residents raived about this unique farm and ice cream shop.  We had to check it out.  The customer service was amazing and the farm was a hoot. if you get the chance plan a visit! 


Butterfly Release

Butterfly Release

We held a beautiful remembrance service for our residents and our loved ones lost. 

50 individual butterflies were released to honor those who have passed, but why butterflies?  Why not bubbles, balloons or planting a tree?  The butterfly’s journey through life is a perfect metaphor for our own spiritual journey, full of birth, life, death and transformation.  There is something special about them that inspires us, we smile when we see one.  They remind us that things are ever changing and there is beauty in that change.

According to an American Indian Legend, if anyone desires a wish to come true they must first capture a butterfly and whisper that wish to it.

Since a butterfly can make no sound, the butterfly cannot reveal the wish to anyone but the Great Spirit who hears and sees all.

In gratitude for giving the beautiful butterfly its freedom, the Great Spirit always grants the wish.

Others say that you can whisper ‘I love you’ to a butterfly and it will fly to heaven to deliver you message.

Those of you who released a butterfly donated to Family Promise of Ontario County, a not for profit charity that help low income families in Canandaigua.
