Here’s What’s Happening on the JGS Campus

The hot days of August didn’t stop our residents from participating in fun and varied activities. One highlight was a trip to the Smith College Museum of Art. Our residents enjoyed visiting the museum and seeing the beautiful artwork. What a wonderful afternoon!

Our Annual Hawaiian Luau was also a tremendous hit!  The staff dressed in their brightest Hawaiian outfits, including their funky sunglasses. Residents were treated to live entertainment, dancing to the tunes. This year’s Corn Shucking Party was also a festive occasion.  The corn is shucked in the morning in to prepare for the afternoon’s Corn on the Cob Social where the sweet ears of corn are eaten with much gusto!  There is nothing better than fresh corn in August.

Summer gardening continues to be a favorite pastime. Flowers from the centerpieces at the Frankel Kinsler Day of Tournaments were repurposed in our elevated garden boxes.  Our residents like putting their hands in the soil, tending the plants, and watching them grow!

Visits from our four-legged friends always lift spirits. Countess Basie, our beautiful collie friend, visits twice a month offering pet therapy visits and spreading her unconditional love. She brings a smile to everyone who sees her.
