Touchmark at Meadow Lake Village - December 2013 Newsletter

  1. 1. EVENT{FULL} Monthly updates from your {FULL} Life community Honoring veterans Touchmark gathered for a full day of celebrations on Veteran’s Day. Angela Alvarez, secretary and charter member of the Idaho Military Historical Society, spoke about Medal of Honor recipients who have an Idaho connection; a color guard of veterans presented the flag; and everyone joined in the songs and recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance. The Meadow Lake Village Choir also performed a selection of patriotic music. The day continued with an elegant lunch and evening music.

  2. 2. Snapshots show off fall fun Chad Bolender has been claiming that he has seen and even caught a large bass from the pond on the Touchmark campus. This fall, he has proof, as someone snapped a photo of his victory. The 16-inch fish was full of energy; Chad successfully returned “Bob the Bass” to the pond to fight another day. Crescendo String Quartet set the mood for the annual Fall Art Gala. The theme for this year’s event was An Evening of Celebrating Art. Guests viewed the artwork, talked with the artists, and enjoyed appetizers and desserts prepared by Chef Jake. The art will remain on display through Dec. 9.

Retirement Resort Marge Coalman, EdD Vice President of Wellness & Programs Celebrating the possibilities “‘Why not’ is a slogan for an interesting life.” – Mason Cooley, professor and aphorist Year’s end brings a time for reflection and shared memories. All of the holidays and holy days for people of faith have celebratory events and traditions. Often the gifts of the spirit, friendships, family relationships, victories, and losses are remembered. As 2014 approaches, many ponder, “What’s next?” Perhaps the better question is, “Why not?” Things on the bucket list might be due for a move to the action list.
