Some of the activities the seniors enjoy in addition to the good meals are: dominoes, playing pool, jigsaw puzzles, manicures, bingo – (with prized and sometimes with root beer floats) blood pressure checks and shopping trips to Walmart. Sometimes they have local citizens come in to sing, play the piano or guitar. Amber recently arranged to have the US and Texas flag set so we can say the pledge allegiance before the prayer and meal.

The computers have the basic word processor, spreadsheet and games, as well as connection to the internet. Everyone was very excited to learn and had lots of questions. It was really great to see so much interest.
