Happenings at Cimarron Memorial
by Nancy Roberts
Many activities are already scheduled for the residents and staff at Cimarron Memorial Hospital and Nursing Home. The community is so good to share their time and talents with our facility, and each and every effort is appreciated.
Residents of the nursing home recently decided to try some new games and will now be playing cards and dominoes instead of bingo. There is always room for additional players most afternoons in the dining room, sunroom, or garden room. The games may even be moved to the gazebo since the weather is now so nice.
On Sunday, May 9 there will be a Mother's Day Tea in the sunroom at the nursing home. It will start at 2 p.m. Everyone is encouraged to wear a hat to this special event. Refreshments are provided.
Tuesday, May 18 is the date for the band concert in the gazebo. Dwight Odell and the Boise City Band are treating the community to a rousing good time beginning at 7 p.m. It is suggested everyone bring a lawn chair for best seating. Cool drinks will be provided.
Also eagerly anticipated is the dedication of the gazebo and landscaping project, slated for Saturday, May 29 at 3:30 p.m. Trees and flowers are being planted by the member of Eta Alpha Sorority, and it is a treat to see all the hard work going into the project. Seating and refreshments will be provided.
Coming up June 4 will be a health fair at the hospital. Services offered will be blood pressure check, bone density check by Osteoporosis Services, cancer teaching by Harrington Cancer Center, vision screening by Sam's Club, and EKG tests. A blood drive will also be in progress during the health fair. Information on financial aid for prescriptions through drug companies will available. Refreshments will be provided by Ben Keith Company.
All nine of the baby Zebra Finches have found new homes, thanks to staff members who bought the birds. The proceeds go to the aviary fund.
Donations this month include: a new microwave given by Chuck Payne for the nursing home; new clothing protectors to be utilized during residents dining made by the women at First Baptist Church of Boise City; and a flat of rose moss to be planted on the grounds, given by Janice Smith in honor of the birthday of her mother, Camilla Davidson.
The facility welcomes new employee Krista Walker, who is the receptionist at the front desk of the hospital. Farewell is bid to former Chief Executive Officer Sharon Cox and her husband Don, who left Oklahoma last Friday. Sharon and Don were both very generous in sharing their talents toward improving this community while they were here, and they will be missed.
