SPRINGHOUSE SENIOR LIVING – SEPTEMBER 2019 NEWSLETTER
Springhouse Walk to End Alzheimers!
It’s that time of year again! Each fall, to coincide with the Memory Walk events held across the nation, Springhouse Senior Living raises awareness as well as funds for the Alzheimer’s Association to assist them in their quest for a cure for Alzheimer’s and other related diseases, as well as offer services and support to those living with dementia.
The 11th Annual Springhouse Senior Living Walk to End Alzheimer’s will be held on Thursday, September 26th at 2:00 p.m.
Throughout the month of September donations to the Alzheimer’s Association will be accepted at the Concierge desks. A number of incentives will be available for purchase, including Alzheimer’s Association’s bracelets and handmade crafts including greeting cards created by Springhouse resident artists. All donors will be recognized with printed Forget Me Not paper flowers which will be on display throughout the building.
If you would like to help us support this important cause, please consider making a donation today or join us to walk! Contact Meredith Griffiths at 617-522-0043 or firstname.lastname@example.org and/or drop checks off at the front desk made payable to the Alzheimer’s Association.
Springstock Happened Here!
That’s right. Springhouse celebrated Woodstock’s 50th Anniversary with our very own Springstock Festival filled with peace, love and 60’s music on the Patio!
We think the Activities Department really outdid themselves with this one. And mother nature supplied us with “fab” weather. We had groovy music, hippie attire and tie dye everything (created in our art studio). The food was super special. We all enjoyed “magic mushrooms”, peace & love cookies, Kenny’s “special” brownies, crunchy munchies, flower power punch and virgin mud
slides. We even found out that two of our residents were at the original Woodstock Festival. Who knew?
Best of Yiddishkeit Concert
Alan Pearlmutter and Linda Poland present The Best of Yiddishkeit
on Saturday, September 21st at 2:00 p.m.
Join Springhouse in a celebration of Jewish culture in advance of the High Holidays. The Best of Yiddishkeit is a tribute to the Judaic and Hebraic soul. Clarinetist Linda Poland and pianist/ singer Alan Pearlmutter perform a variety of musical selections representative of klezmer dance music, Israeli songs, and old-time Yiddish favorites. The program includes Belz, Yiddishe Mame, Bai Mir Bist Du Shen, Rumania-Rumania, and concludes with a medley from Fiddler on the Roof. Humorous anecdotes and an interesting narrative add a personal element to the program.
