SHC ERIN Spring Fling


On April 16th, elders and staff headed on an adventure.  On our first stop we visited The Home Place at Land between the Lakes. The elders really enjoyed learning some history. They talked about things there  they had used at their grandparents’ homes.  The home had things that several remember having–a breezeway, corncob checkers, and an old Iron Wood Stove.  It gave our elders a great deal to discuss.

After leaving the Home Place, we traveled on to a place called Patti’s Settlement. We went in sat down and had an amazing lunch. From burgers to fillets they ate ’til they could eat no more. Oh, and lets not forget the flowerpot bread and strawberry butter.  At the end of the meal, I asked around the table what everyone liked most about that day. Each elder stated the best thing about the day was just being together with friends, laughing, and having fun.

Kickin’ it Irish Style 2015

Kickin’ it Irish Style was the theme for this year’s Irish week celebration. From March 13th til March 21st, Erin went all out to celebrate Irish week. Our week consisted of  our kick off breakfast, an Irish potato bar complete with green beer, a carnival, the Miss Emerald Beauty pageant, and a huge Irish parade where our elders rode in the recreation club trolley! Some participated and some sat and watched. Our float came in 1st place for the 3rd year straight. Irish week is a lot of work, but we’re in Irish country, and the work was worth it!
