The NEW “Illinois Stories”

-Mark McDonald has hosted over 1,200 episodes of the very popular “Illinois Stories” series on PBS. The station recently cancelled the show, but Mark found his footing and the show has been revived as “Muddy River Gems”. Their second ever episode was shot here at Good Samaritan Home and featured our very own Toby Elsenpeter and his remarkable life and career as a popular local television star (Possum Holler Opry) & traveling entertainer and marionette. Join us in the Social Room on Monday, January 9th at 2:30pm as we screen this episode and celebrate the career of our very own celebrity!

Mystery Meal Time!

-Mystery Meal returns again next week on Wednesday the 11th and Thursday the 12th at 10:30am at the front entrance. Remember, you must contact Sally and sign up to go by calling extension 4227! The only cost to you is the price of your meal. Don’t forget, this outing is open to resident and cottagers alike, so make a plan, contact Sally, and come enjoy a great mystery meal!

Happy Birthday
