I hope you enjoy this beautiful month of November. It is a month to think about everything we are thankful for! Here in the West Indies we have many exciting things to be thankful for and to celebrate, starting off with Christine Robert’s birthday which is on November 1st! She looks amazing for 96 years old and is still up and around enjoying life.

Election Day is November 8th, so please take time to get out and cast your Ballot as every vote counts! Then on Nov. 10th we celebrate the Marine Corp Anniversary (established in 1775). This is a perfect day to give thanks to all military men & women.

Veterans Day is November 11th, and is a special remembrance day in the U.S. & Canada. November 11th also happens to be the day thatWorldWar I ended in 1918. So it’s a day to be proud and thankful to those that served for all of us!!

We would like to give a warm welcome to Dianna Mendoza & Lupe Ruvalcaba, our new co-managers that recently joined our W.I. staff. We’re all looking forward to working together as a team!

Last but not least, enjoy your amazing Thanksgiving Holiday with friends and family on November 24th. It’s a great day to verbally share with each other the things you are thankful for.

Too often we underestimate the power of a gentle touch, a smile, or a kind word. Here in the “West Indies” we try to take time during our busy day to see that the residents experience our touch, our smiles and kind words to show that we really care – because we do!

Have a fantastic month from all the West Indies Staff!

Sunshine and smiles... Leslie, Rey, Lupe, Dianna and the entire W.I. Staff
