Week One On the Road to the Crown!

Who in the world sent our email to the Pentagon? That was the comment from the residents this week, as we recieved over 25 different emails from around the globe. Thank you to everyone! We have the world map up, and emails from places like England, Alaska, Alabama, and the U.S. Virgin Islands represented. Please keep the emails to the queen mums coming in; this has been a great discussion topic, and the excitement is building!

A huge thank you to a few people who really went out of their way this past week; To the Yale Manor Senior Apartments, for having a sloppy joe lunch for us and for their great support! (These are our prom party buddies)! Also to everyone who has sent in donations; we also had several vendors/business associates send in donations, and we thank you for your support. We will be posting a complete list of vendors who support the yale chamber/bologna queen toward the end of the fund raising events in July.

This week found MediLodge very busy, the staff and my department heads all pitched in and gave above and beyond. Again, their dedication is why MediLodge is such a remarkable place. I think the best part for us who volunteered this weekend, was hearing the feedback from people who have never been in our building, but have "heard" about us in a positive light. To someone who understands the difficulty of marketing a nursing home; having people talk about you in a positive light without first hand experience, is like winning the battle of battles. It is a great affirmation of why we do what we do!

This week's activities include; steak and chicken barbeque delivered, eat in or pick up at MediLodge; our girls bus trip and then getting ready for garage sale. We have our "facility" salesman already to start selling bears in the front lobby today, along with t-shirts and cookies.

We hope to hear from you!
