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!

You're a Grand Old Flag...

You're a Grand Old Flag...

...forever in peace may you wave.

Celebrating Flag Day at the community has always been a very important event.  We are so fortunate to have many residents, particularly those who have served in the military, that are excited to participate in the program each year.  This year Retired U.S. Navy veteran Kathy C. led the Pledge of Allegiance and also spoke about what the flag means to her.  Coast Guard veteran Bern O. shared a poem that he wrote.  Gerry S.spoke about a tradition involving the flag during his time serving in the U.S. Air Force.

Katherine McGraff, Lifestyle Coordinator, sang the Star Spangled Banner as those in attendance joined in.  "You're the emblem of the land I love, the home of the free and the brave!"
