Residents had the awesome opportunity to go to an LA Kings game at the Staples Center out in LA. The Kings faced the Vancouver Canucks, and it was an awesome game! As well as it was on Valentine’s Day, so some residents were able to enjoy an exciting game with their loved one!
Residents were able to write a love letter to their significant other and or a friend or roommate. Then RAs Tyler and Carlile delivered them on Valentine’s Day as a nice reminder how loved everyone is. It was a huge hit and the residents loved getting a little something extra on a day of love!
As the new year is upon us, many of us make resolutions to make better choices and eat healthier. At this program, residents were able to start the year off with fresh juice from fresh produce that is both nutritious and delicious, as well as learning the benefits of healthy eating!
Beach Clean Up
On Friday January 22nd, RA’s Kayla, Matt, and Tyler hosted a beach clean up. Luckily the rain cleared up for them, but the amount of trash was devastating! It was a wonderful time to really learn and see the harmful effects of what littering can do.
Letters to Heroes
On Friday January 18th, residents from Tropicana Gardens gathered up at the Tropicana Gardens Rec Room and dedicated their time to write letters for Heroes: veterans and soldiers around the nation. Residents were also able to enjoy some snacks and finish decorating their letters with fun stickers. The letters were mailed to a non-profit organization called “A Million Thanks”, which distributes the letters to soldiers and veterans around the U.S
