         Important Notice Regarding Morning Devotions!

  We will temporarily
change the start time for Morning Devotions. Beginning January 20th,
for two weeks, Devotions will start at 9:30 a.m.

  This change will
hopefully accomplish a couple of things.  It will allow those residents that like to
sleep in a chance to attend.  It will
also alleviate a time crunch that some staff members have experienced in trying
to assist residents to get up, have breakfast and be ready in time to go.  Hopefully, it will increase the overall
attendance at the services.

  This will affect the start times for the following:
Towel Folding on Monday, Wednesday & Friday will begin at 10:00 a.m.
Catholic Mass on Thursday will begin at 10:30 a.m.
Marvin Cook on January 21 and Sing-a-Long on January 28 will start a few minutes late.

  Please note that Sunday Worship will remain at 9:00 a.m.

  We ask that you
attend with an open mind and share your thoughts with either Chaplain Josh at
ext. 4491 or Sally at ext. 4227.   If the change is well received, we will
consider making it permanent.

  We would like to
take this opportunity to thank you in advance for helping us.

  Mark your calendars!  Devotions will be held at 9:30 a.m. – January 20 – January 31, 2020.
