Waldron Nursing Center Residents had a wonderful time fishing at the lake in front of Greenhurst Nursing Home in Charleston, AR. Joining several other nursing homes for the day of fishing and enjoying the wonderful grilled hamburgers and hot dogs with all the fixings prepared by the Greenhurst staff. Going fishing in our group was residents Janis Hull, who caught the first fish, with a total of 7 fish altogether, Dianne Brennan who caught the second fish with a total of two fish, Paul Davis caught the biggest fish, a really nice catfish with a total of four fish, others going and fishing was Hattie Thomas, Florain Valentine, Hoyt Goodner, assisting on the trip was Chris Davis, wife of Paul, son Paul Logan and friend, Warren Davis driving the truck to haul the wheelchairs and fishing gear, also an excellent worm threader and taker off of fish, Nurse Anne Matthews, Van drivers Bonnie Thompson and Alex Carter, along with myself taking lots of photos with their prime catches. These will be posted on the photo wall very shortly. Thanks so much for everyone helping the residents have a wonderful fishing day. Greenhurst staff are such a wonderful host in providing this fishing day every year. We also “thank” our own staff for getting the residents ready to leave on time for the trip as well as helping unload the vans when we returned. It’s a big team effort when we have outings like this, but the best reward is seeing the smiles on the faces when they get a fish on the line. Warren and the boys are to be commended for the excellent job they did of helping everyone with their poles and fish.
Other big “Thanks” goes out to R&R Automotive, Roger and Kim Rich for bringing very big smiles of delight to all of our ladies on Mother’s Day with the presentation of a lovely fresh carnation to each one of them in their honor.
Other events included Reminiscence with Diane Miller, Worship with Ray Jett, Bingo with Volunteer Doyle Wayne helping out, morning crafts with Pat Morales who helped with finishing the lovely fans from last weeks project. Nail painting with Alex, another big event is the bean bag baseball game, Dalton Gang verses Waldron Nursing Center Twisters. Our next outing will be the spring trip to Golden Corral.
In closing we congratulate Seniors who are connected to Waldron Nursing Center, employees Karley Thompson, McKayla Thompson, Ashley Custer and Makenzie Polen, employee family are Trevor Root and Tara Helton.
