We have been busy during this holiday season while having lots of fun. Socialization is so important for those who have memory loss. While Among Friends focuses on meaningful activities and interactions, we also want to have fun with one another! And we have certainly enjoyed each other’s company during December as we celebrate the holidays.
Volunteer Ruth McNamara sought the help of our participants to create beautiful Christmas centerpieces. One of our AF regulars, never having tried anything like this before, was pretty proud of her creative contribution to the projects.
What would Christmas be without Christmas cookies? We aren’t sure that Bob has ever made cookies before, but he sure had fun as Program Coordinator Norma Revels helped him out.
Among Friends participants and volunteers were invited guests at the annual United Church of Christ Christmas luncheon. Not only were the Swedish meatballs and all the fixings delicious, the homemade cookies made by members of the congregation and the River Falls High School carolers made the afternoon even more enjoyable.
