Cinco de Mayo
On Wednesday, May 5th, which is Cinco de Mayo, is widely held as the date which commemorates the Mexican Army’s victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla in 1862 under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza. You know important history! The Residents will be splurging during Margarita Bingo, yes that’s right, their entire allotment of salt for the month all in one tall cool cup of sweet green Margarita Mix. The sounds of Mexican Music will accompany each bingo win! The sounds of the Mariachi Band filling the room with fun and joy to celebrate General Ignacio Zaragoza and the bingo winner! Our Residents are very serious about their Bingo games but never as serious as Margarita Bingo.
Nursing Home Week
During the entire week of May 10th -14th, special events are planned to help Celebrate National Nursing Home Week. On Monday, there will be a “wear your favorite sports Jersey” with musical entertainment by Jesus and a Jersey show-off. On Tuesday, it is Tropical Tuesday, also known as Resident Appreciation Day, where our Residents will be receiving their ball cap and a handwritten note by the staff telling them how much they mean to them. With our Yoga 365 class and some Coconut Birthday Cake, as well as a little bit of hula dancing… it will be a blast. On Wednesday, it’s Wacky Wednesday, where staff will dress up in the Wackiest combinations of clothing and accessories to make the Residents laugh and just have a silly and fun day, all while dancing to the amazing Wes Anthony’s live show. On Thursday, we will join forces with a staff member and a Resident and compete in games, and on Friday, it’s FlashBack Friday, where we will all present our team spirit in an old-fashioned Cheer. We look forward to celebrating what we do and the marvelous life we have here at the Encore at Boca Raton.
There are over 40+ countries all over the world that honor their mothers at some designated day in the year. Our Modern Mother’s Day began in the United States at the suggestion of Anna Jarvis in the early 20th century. Of course, we celebrate on the second Sunday in May, recognizing motherhood and the maternal bonds and the positive contributions that mothers make to society. The Holiday began in Grafton, West Virginia, on May 10th, 1908. On Sunday, May 9th, we recognize our Encore at Boca Mothers with a special party. We will be giving each woman a special treat, as our very favorite entertainer, Mr. Stone Silk will be swooning the ladies… and he is smooth as silk. Refreshments will be served, and we are sure there will be many family visits on this very special day. Happy Mother’s Day!
