The beginning of the fall season is a great time to reflect on the variety of events we enjoyed during the summer months and to anticipate those ahead. And what better way to begin than by acknowledging the International Day of the Older Person, October 1st. Designated by the General Assembly of the United Nations in 1990, all countries are encouraged to enable men and women to age with dignity and to integrate aging issues into everyday life. Kirby Pines is a daily example of doing just this. Also, to be celebrated the first day of October is International Coffee Day, and as a somewhat avid coffee drinker, I may just go out for breakfast on Saturday to experience more than my home brewed coffee.
This month we also celebrate: National Custodial Worker’s Day, October 2nd. This day is set aside for us to thank the numerous employees that maintain the overall appearance of our beautiful community; the week of October 2nd -8th is National Health Care Food Service Week, this group of employees are an essential part of our integrated lifecare services.
Please join your fellow residents in thanking these individual employees for the time they dedicate to make a difference in your life. Along this same thought, October 22nd is Make a Difference Day – and we all have the ability to do something small that makes a difference. Let’s make sure we start the fall season by making a positive difference at Kirby Pines Lifecare Community.
If you’re looking for a new experience, don’t forget to join in on the fun of a tethered hot air balloon ride during our annual Fall Festival late this month. And if you are looking forward to a truly gastronomical experience, be sure to make reservations for the last Exquisite Cuisine meal of this year on October 27th.
