Our Maritime Gardens family ended 2017 with a big event. Our resident, Alice, turned 100 years old. We also celebrated bringing in the new year with champagne and a special meal. Party hats were worn and our residents used noise makers during a count down. In february, we had a chocolate/wine social and the following week enjoyed a valentines party with heart shaped cookies and all the trimmings. In March we had a Shamrock Shake Social and celebrated St. Patrick's Day with an Irish Fest. At the end of the month we had an Easter egg hunt. A sock hop was our big event for spring. Live music, hot dogs, french fries and ice cream sundaes were enjoyed by all. On Cinco de Mayo margaritas were served, along with mexican lasagna, corn and rice pudding. Many birthdays were celebrated and on Mothers Days flowers were given out .
