Encore Residents get into a Free-Spirited Style!
On Saturday, July 3rd, by special request, we are bringing tie-dyeing back. The best trick when tie-dyeing is to soak the cloth in soda ash and warm water. After wringing out the garment, the twisting, folding, or wrapping begins. Create a design with rubber bands and then dip into the buckets of colors. Tie-dyeing is an art and craft, which has withstood the test of time from ancient cultures to today. Tie-dyeing can be traced to the 6th century in India as well as during the T’ang Dynasty in China and the Nara Period in Japan. Back then, berries, roots, and flowers were used to dye the material. Today, we most associate tie-dye in the United States with the 1960s hippie movement as it served as an inexpensive way to express creativity. The Hippies longed to escape from the strict societal norms of the 1950s and tie-dye exuded a free-spirited style.
Celebrations of Our Independence
On Sunday, July 4th our Residents will be celebrating 245 years of freedom for this great land of America. Residents start celebrating on July 1st while making strawberry and blueberry crepes with whipped cream. We will also be practicing our favorite patriotic songs for the big day. To finish off our celebration, we will have entertainment by Jesus in our Market Square. Wear your red, white, and blue, as a contest will award the best dressed Patriot in the room! Stay tuned for our amazing giveaways.
On Tuesday, July 27th, we will be hosting our Summertime Bash, with beach balls and rock and roll. Entertainment will be provided by Wes Anthony, a multi-talented performer playing saxophone, and singing those songs we long to hear about summertime. Popsicles will help cool us down from dancing and singing. We hope to see you there.
As we practice proper social distancing protocols in our community, we are proud to feature modified programming to continue providing vibrancy for our residents and employees. All events are subject to change. Please feel free to follow us on our Facebook page for continued updates as well as reaching out to us via Messenger.
