Personalized care providing support for seniors with respect and dignity.
Acorn Hill Senior Living Community and Residential Care Apartment Complex is licensed by the State of Wisconsin Bureau of Assisted Living. It is a very warm and special place, planned and built to be sensitive to aging seniors’ needs. A vibrant upbeat community surpassing the expectations of its tenants. When it comes to quality of life, seniors know what’s really important. We cater to our tenants’ individual needs and preferences, providing them with a variety of personal services and programs designed to provide support while honoring individuality.
National Volunteer Week is a time for us to honor our volunteers for their selfless contributions and recognize the irreplaceable impact of their time and energy all year round. The Volunteers of Acorn Hill were celebrated for the 2800 plus hours they gave to our Tenants this past year.
The Tenants of Acorn Hill were also recognized for their contributions in our community service projects. They are Rosemary Lang, Sylvia Camomilli, Lorraine Gaines, Delores Nest, Doris Kennedy, Leona Dahlke, Mim Bemis, and Elaine Koss.
Senator Jerry Petroski presented Rose Marie Leszczynski with the 2008 Acorn Hill Volunteer of the Year Award. Rose Marie was selected for this award because of her love of people. She generally desires to connect with people of faith and enable them to actively participate in Activities of Faith. Rose Marie has shown her desire to serve by overseeing St. Paul’s Church Communion and Rosery Ministry at Acorn Hill.
All the Acorn Hill Volunteers were recognized by Margarete Budimlija for their dedicated services and presented with a Volunteer Appreciation Plaque by Justin Budimlija and Dan Budimlija. A delicious lunch of Cobb Salad, Bread Sticks and Connie’s Creamy Potato Soup was served.
Well, I am happy to say that Mother Nature seems to be back on tract. After the 20 inch snow storm we all began to wonder.
Oh well, many Tenants at Acorn Hill shared memories of the storms they endured when they were young, like trudging through the snow when you couldn’t see the barn from the house and you knew you had to get there for the livestock. No fancy furnaces in those days just a wood burning stove and a wood box to be filled twice a day. Wally Rozella talked about the cook stove in the kitchen his family had when he was a boy and that he would stand in front of and get dressed so he could go out the barn where the cows kept it warm. We all decided that memories are better when shared 50 years later.
Speaking of sharing. It was a busy March at The Hill. Donna Muller’s Son, Mike, Daughter, Jennifer and Trapper came and were a hit at our St. Patrick’s Day Dance /Party. We all thank them for sharing their wonderful musical talent. Of course, the Irish Coffee and Corn Beef and Cabbage Potato’s and Irish Soda Bread was So Good. And what would St. Patrick’s Day be like without Green Beer and some Blarney. Once again Craig from 2’s Company was so generous with his Irish Chicken Wings and Pot of Gold Meatballs. Thanks again Craig.
Did you know that March 14th was National Pie Day? Well the Tenants if Acorn Hill took the responsibility of celebrating and tasted every pie put before them.
April is National Volunteer Appreciation Month and we are planning a fun luncheon for our dedicated Volunteers. We will tell you all about next month.
This month we welcomed Sunny Igl & his wife Lenore, Mr. Alan Albrecht and wife Dorothy, Mrs. Marjorie Gibson, and Mrs. Margaret Maier. We are happy to have you join the Acorn Hill family.
We share our condolences to the family of Lenore Igl, while her time us was short she made a wonderful impression on us all. We also bid farewell to Dolores Swedowski. Her gentle smile and so sweet disposition will be greatly missed.
Remember this: Snowflakes are one of nature’s most fragile things, but just look at what they can do when they stick together.
Until we talk again,
The Easter Bunny needed a little help this year and the Tenants of Acorn Hill were happy to oblige.
We found out that The Food Pantry of the Community Center of Hope was in need of Easter Baskets, so we got busy and made 10 baskets. We filled them with Candy and Games; Candy and Easter Playing Cards; Candy and Bunny Bubble; and Candy and Eggs filled with Candy. We sure hope the kids enjoy their baskets and remember to brush their teeth!!!
