Behind the Scenes at Cohen Florence Levine Estates and Florence & Chafetz

The fall weather has been outstanding and we are taking full advantage of outdoor activities. In fact, It was a spectacular autumn day when we embarked upon our annual Fall Foliage Ride. Traditionally this ride includes a stop for apple cider donuts, but this year, by popular demand, we savored homemade ice-cream at Treadwell’s in Peabody. A fitting end to the perfect trip.

On the agenda for November: residents went to see music legend Paul Anka at the Lynn Auditorium. He gave an amazing performance! It was such a treat for residents and staff to see him perform live on stage. Take a look at the photos from the performance.

Our book club continues to be a popular activity. This month, residents selected “Where the Crawdads Sing,” the international best-seller by Della Owens. No doubt the discussion will be lively—as always.

Chef Richard has been trying out some new items in the fall menu, with a variety of fresh nutritious ingredients. The mahi mahi was a huge hit! Keeping with the fall theme, Oretha has been baking mouth-watering pumpkin pies and muffins. The aroma of these freshly baked goodies is irresistible.

Over at Florence & Chafetz, we are hosting a Thanksgiving reception for residents and families on November 16. Everyone is looking forward to delicious food, colorful decorations and, most importantly, the opportunity to be together. Residents have been busy making a special craft for their families. A focal point of the day will be our “thankful” tree. Residents and families write what they are thankful for on paper leaves and place on the tree. We can’t wait to see the finished creation!
