Spaghetti Supper

Written by: Burgundy Ramsey, Director of Development & Public Relations

Mark your calendars! We will be hosting our annual Spaghetti Supper on Wednesday, April 10 from 4 to 7 pm in the Social Room. All proceeds will benefit the Alzheimer’s Association.

The menu will feature homemade spaghetti, garlic bread, and desserts. Carry-out will be available. Tickets are $6 for adults and $3 for children 10 and under. Tickets are available to purchase in advance from the front desk, or at the door the night of the event. 

Staff are also working on putting together some amazing raffle baskets. These will be out starting Wednesday, April 3. We’ve got several great ones coming in, so be ready to buy your tickets! Tickets will be $1 each or 6 for $5. 

We are accepting donations for desserts and packages of uncooked spaghetti noodles. We are also looking for volunteeres for the event. If you would like to help with either of these or have any questions, please contact Burgundy Ramsey at ext. 4240 or bramsey@gshq.org.

Come out and support the Alzheimer’s Association with this tasty event! We hope to see you there!

Prayer Request & Scripture

This week we are praying for the residents in Sheltering Grove and for the Beauty Shop and General Store staff. 

Our Scripture of the Week, the fifth week of Lent, is Psalm 102:1-3: “Lord, listen to my prayer; let my cry for help come to you. Do not hide from me in my time of trouble. Pay attention to me. When I cry for help, answer me quickly.”

The Lincoln Era Program

All are invited to see a new video about Quincy’s local Lincoln sites on April 6 at 2 pm in the Social Room. Refreshments will be served and door prizes awarded. If any residents have memories or stories to share about the time when the History Museum on the Square served as the library, the Historical Society would love to hear them or you can bring them in written form. GSH’s Sandy Callahan will be assisting with this program.
