Hello from all of ias here at Cornerstone. Monday we began our day with devotions with Bonnie Swanberg. That afternoon we celebrated with the men here at Cornerstone -- we had our annual Father's Day pie. Our slSeaker was Father Dave of St Joseph's Catholic Church. He shared stories, quotes, and fun jokes with us. Father Dave is such a good speaker; he has such a good way of making us look at the sunny side of life while preaching about the serious side. Jim Martin and Bob Agnew entertained us with their sing-a-longs, while Jim played the guitar and wonderful waltzes were accompanied with Bob on the fiddle. Jim and Bob also harmonize so well together when they sing. The kitchen made the blueberry pies. All together we had good music, good stories, good food, and good conversation; not to mention how wonderful the dining room was decorated. During our celebration the ladies gathered in the activity room for bingo. Lorna Johnson came in and helped with that. Monday was a tim filled day. Tuesday we had storytime with Linda Norland. That was our rainy day around here, so it was nice to gather in a circle for a good story. Wednesday morning the residents had Bible study with Pastor Fry. That afternoon Glorified Rice ladies of Rice & Alida Free Lutheran sang to the accompaniment of guitar stylist Kim LaVine. The ladies have been singing together for go many years; it is no surprise the harmony is so smooth - - just like melted butter. For our evening activity we played Jingo, a game just like bingo except they have a card of pictures instead of numbers and we give them clues, then they have to find that picture on their card. Eunice LaRue • was our big blackout winner -- she was a happy camper too[ Thursday Ruby Bergquist came in to call for another bingo game -- we played bingo twice this week because of the Father's Day Pie. Monday the ladies played more bingo, and we wanted to make sure everyone that wanted to be in on the bingo fun this week got a chance. I have to say you can never play the game too much around here. After coffee we all gathered for fellowship and we sang some old favorite hymns and read about Noah's Ark. After fellowship we put the cinnamon pull-a-parts together so they could rise overnight. Friday we" started the day with our crossword "puzzle game. The residents really enjoy crosswords -- it is a game where we all learn something. That afternoon Bea Lebeda and Grace Nelson came in to assist with baking class. For baking class we put the cinnamon pull-a-parts in the oven, and when that was baking we made a taco salad dip. We all enjoyed a feast that day, and we made sure to make plenty enough to share with everygne in the facility too! It was all very good. need to teach their students how lignite is mined and used to produce energy for homes,, farms and businesses in the Upper Midwest.
