In these pictures you can see a flurry of activity in Rayburn Hall as we prepared for our annual Holiday Dinner Extravaganza.  The centerpieces were made from foraging in the woods.  Residents got together and did all the arranging.  The invitations were sent out, our chefs were busy planning and preparing, and the staff helped arrange and set the tables.  The parties have begun.  Each floor has their own private dinner in the great hall.  It is an opportunity to give thanks and to spend time with neighbors and friends.

The Barbie Movie

What is it about the Barbie Movie that is creating so much attention?

Ok.  So we clearly had a lot of fun showing the Barbie Movie in Rayburn Hall on Friday.  The pre-party was a hoot!  The energy our residents brought to the event was palpable.

It's a fun movie, but since I'm blogging on a website for a Senior Community, I thought I might dig deeper and my attention went to the bench scene.  Academy award winning, fashion designer, Ann Roth, meets Barbie on a bench where Barbie looks at this elderly woman and says, "you're beautiful," and Ann Roth responds, "I know it."  There it is!!!  Women talking to each other through generations.  Barbie's decision to leave Barbieland and embrace the discomforts of the human experience and to see beauty in aging are some of the themes in the movie.  

There was magic in the air on friday as we drank pink cocktails, ate pink popcorn, and enjoyed each other as modern women living in challenging times.

Reader’s Theater performed by The Players of Ontario County Arts Council put on a Spooktacular show last Sunday.

We were honored to welcome the group back for a second time and the audience was not disappointed! 

Our residents and members of the public enjoyed listening to the eerie tales and had a chance to win a selection of raffle prizes.

Funds raised support the OCAC scholarship and grant programs.  We look forward to hosting more great shows in the future.

New Sign Language Class offered at Clark Meadows

Just for Beginners

Beginner Sign Language is for those who want review or are just curious about learning some signs.  Today we discussed the History of Sign Language and a few helpful hand movements to practice.  Motions such as the prong, palm out, palm up, palm in, palm down, claw, fist, and fist knock.  These are all formations used frequently when creating language with your hands.  Now we offer two different levels for sign language enthusiasts.  This class is so much fun and we are happy to create programming that is all inclusive.  We have in the past signed to music for our holiday concerts and for special community events.  This new class is learning quickly!  Stay tuned.
