The Arbors residents and some of their guests made the rounds and sang Christmas carols to those who were home. Mandy and Gail provided printed lyrics for the songs, so no one had an excuse for not singing. This year we split into 2 groups so that there wasn’t a need to walk the whole park. Thanks to everyone for participating!
Check out some of the pictures from the 2016 Christmas Eve caroling. Many of the participants were decked out in holiday finery with lighted bicycles and golf carts interspersed. Some of the carolers even had 4 paws. You might be able to guess where the caroler with 4 paws lives. Click on any of the pictures to see an enlarged version.
After serenading many of the residents, the carolers stopped by Sue’s house for the annual party and enjoyed a huge buffet of delicious snacks and drinks. There was a line to get inside that went all the way to the street. Even after you were lucky enough to get inside the house, every room was filled with residents enjoying the great fare. Some of our new residents found their way to Sue’s house and got introduced to an Arbors Christmas tradition. I think there were a lot of tired feet from all of the walking even though it was only half of the park. And, even though Sue has the largest lighted Christmas Tree outside, she also has a beautiful lighted Christmas tree inside her home. Click on any of the pictures to see an enlarged version.
Christmas Day saw a packed clubhouse as many of our residents enjoyed a delicious dinner of turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, gravy, side dishes too numerous to mention and many great pies. Thanks to Kevin (for some this might be the first sighting ever of my elusive husband), Sue T, Phyllis, Ruth & John, Ron B, Pat W, Mary Jane, Pat F, Dot, Marie, Sue H, Linda S, and Pete for all their hard work!!! (Hope I didn’t forget anyone and I was so busy helping with the dinner that I didn’t get to take pictures this year.)
