December is the month of holidays and our first one is Hanukkah! On Friday, December 11th, we will begin the day with a very special Hanukkah service on our in-house, Willows, Channel (Ch.23). Following the service, we will present our residents with “My Yiddish Hanukkah,” a celebration of song and dance performed by the National Yiddish Theater Folksbiene musical troupe! In addition to the musical celebration, we will also uphold our Willows tradition of airing “The Fiddler on the Roof” on our Classic Movie Channel (Ch.22) And we’re not done yet! Additionally, we will be celebrating in the hallways with a special Hanukkah dessert treat and a “lighting of the Menorah” ceremony on each team. The following day, Saturday, December 12th, we will be presenting an illuminating Hanukkah Bingo Challenge!
We will have a new kind of Christmas this year, but it doesn’t mean it will be any less special! The morning of Friday, December 25th, we will be “a-wassailing” up and down the halls and on Ch.23 to make sure all our residents are in the holiday spirit! The following afternoon, our residents will be treated to a magical Christmas day concert performed by our very own Dale O’Dell! Playing all day on Ch. 22 will be all the animated holiday classics that we all have come to know and love! And since we know all our residents are on the “nice list,” Santa Clause will be making a special appearance with his sack full of presents!
New Year, New You!
2020 has been a very difficult year for everyone. We are so excited to be celebrating a new year and a brighter future! Our Willows New Year’s Celebration will take place on Wednesday, December 30th, as we welcome 2021 with open arms! We will be presenting a movin’ and groovin’ New Year’s concert event performed by a fan-favorite musician, Nicolas King! While Nicolas King is doing his thing, we will be celebrating throughout the building with noise-makers, accessories, poppers, and our sheer enthusiasm to celebrate the New Year! The night will end with black and white cookies and a champagne toast- a fitting end to the year 2020 and a warm welcome to 2021!
