When the calendar says, "Baking Demo: Cookies with Patrick," folks gather around.  Today, Patrick Boylan, a baker at Thompson Senior Living Communities, shared his family recipe for the favorite molasses cookies!  Patrick did his training at Le Cordon Bleu in New Hampshire and has quite some skills in the baking department.  He demostrated how he assembles a batch of the molasses cookies and while he prepared the dough in his very own orange kitchenaid mixer (a gift from his Mom) he told us about the baked goods he prefers to make in our kitchen.  He loves to decorate cakes and cookies.  One of his other family recipes that he prepares for the residents is a raspberry cheesecake.  He enjoys baking and decorating wedding cakes and says that his passion came from his mother's love of baking.  it was a special treat to meet one of our talented cooks and to hear some of his personal story.  Thank you Patrick!

Thanks for the Memories...

Thanks for the Memories...

Thank you to the staff and residents who attended my "farewell retirement party" recently.  Because this community is part of my extended family, it was, to say the least, an emotional event for me.  A special thank you to our Executive Director, Aimee Ward, for her support, encouragement and leadership during my 7 years working for senior communities. In addition, it truly has been my pleasure to have worked with this awesome team at Clark Meadows.  From our Program Manager, to Case Manager, to our Nurse and our amazing activity staff, what better place to have ended my working career from?

As I concluded my comments that afternoon, it wasn't a goodbye.... I simply said....Love you Lots....see you later!
