Residents have Christmas party
We had our Plaza Christmas party December 7. We enjoyed the ham and baked potatoes and plenty of food furnished by the residents. Dave and Ron Blachford, Annie Fulton and Marvin VanDerWerff entertained us with a variety of songs. We played Bingo and Lois Christiansen won the blackout.
Bernita Voelker is a new resident at the Plaza.
Sunday, Faith Higgins had brunch at the Fanning home. Also present were Jude Higgins, Tim Higgins of Minneapolis, Irene and Jay Fanning, Jim Gentile and his family, and Bobi Wagner and Camrynn.
We appreciated the box of fruit from Teresa Eschenbaum, and also cookies and goodies from the Hand County Library League and Barbara Zeiger.
Saturday evening, John, Cathy, Jim and Carol Higgins, Dianne and Mike Armstrong and Faith Higgins ate at a restaurant to help Dianne celebrate her birthday.
Faith Higgins and Teresa and Randy Fanning went to Minneapolis to celebrate Christmas with family members and to open Christmas presents. Having Christmas dinner with Nancy, Ashley and Gustin Schumacher in Coon Rapids, Minn., in addition to Faith, Teresa and Randy, were Matt and Sarah Fanning; Eric Fanning; Brittany, Nick and Claire Rihanek; and John, Tim, Carol and Cathy Higgins.
To all, a belated Merry Christmas and a happy New Year.
