Country Manor Health Care Center celebrates the season with a Hometown Christmas event
Country Manor Health Care Center and Rapid Recovery and Aquatic Center hosted its 14th annual Hometown Christmas event on Dec. 14. Hundreds of family members and friends of Country Manor residents and guests joined the Country Manor staff and volunteers in celebrating this infamous and very special tradition on campus. The true meaning of Christmas was felt by all in the spirit of faith, family, community and friendship as the warmth of the holiday season was expressed across campus. The sights and sounds of peace and joy filled the day as residents and their loved ones gathered for a plethora of holiday activities and entertainment.
The harmonious sounds of Christmas carolers and Granite City Sound Choir performing in the Chapel, the Sartell High School 7th Street singers and local musicians playing traditional Christmas songs rang throughout the Health Care and Rehab Center. While visitors listened to the delightful sounds of Christmas, they also enjoyed cookie decorating, Christmas crafts and performances by dancers from the North Crest Activity Center, a live nativity presentation, horse-drawn trolley rides and a holiday-themed pool party. Families gathered for pictures with Santa and offered some last-minute gift ideas to the jolly Mr. Claus. Guests also enjoyed an array of decadently prepared cuisine; including five different international themed menus as well as traditional holiday hors d’oeuvres and desserts. Favorites included reuben potato skins, chicken skewers with peanut sauce, chili cheese tarts, beef and mushroom kabobs with blue cheese sauce and turtle cheesecake. Menu was created and prepared by the Country Manor culinary department and available throughout the Health Care and Rehab Center.
The Hometown Christmas is a special event that truly captures the joy of the Holiday season.
