We have several exciting things to celebrate this month here in the West Indies. Happy Birthday to beautiful Sandy Sands and Marian Fleming may your birthday wishes come true.
Daylight Savings Time begins March 12th bringing us more sunshine throughout the day and allowing us longer stays outside. In addition, residents will be enjoying beautiful scenic rides at the Harbor and fun picnic lunches.
Happy Saint Patrick’s Day! The “LuckyMonth” of March has arrived! We have leprechauns, rainbows and pots of gold lurking among us. There seems to be a little bit of Irish in all of us celebrating and having fun! Make sure you wear green or you’ll get pinched! But do you know why? I heard that the country of Ireland is known as the Emerald Isle; therefore countrymen are expected to wear green in honor of their country. If you do not wear green your fellow countrymen will pinch you to remind you that you are of Irish descent.
How exciting! Spring is in the air, beginningMarch 20th! That’s the official first day of Spring! Warmer weather and sunshiny days ahead! Residents will be relaxing on the outside patio playing games, enjoying a snack and feeling the warmth of the beautiful sunshine while enjoying the fresh air!
Our residents enjoy weekly visits with pet therapy dogs Linus and Andy. We also have a new batch of baby birds just in time for March and they are singing away sharing with us their gift of song!
One thing I have learned from working here in the West Indies is that it’s not how much you have it’s how much you can give. Love, compassion, a hug or simple smile is priceless and doesn’t cost a cent!
The West Indies Staff & Residents wish everyone a wonderful March
