May Happenings at the Leonard Florence Center for Living

Residents of Leonard Florence Center for Living enjoy a magic show.

Activities are flourishing both inside and out as residents and staff enjoy the height of the spring season. Our Mother’s Day celebration featured a Big Bucks Bingo a few days before the holiday, sponsored by Judy Weiss in honor of Ethel Weiss. On Mother’s Day, our recreational team gave out Mother’s Day presents to all of our female residents, which included beautiful flowers, soothing hand lotion and a colorful balloon.

This month, residents and staff are looking forward to the restaurant trips at the Marina at the Wharf and the Tides Restaurant & Pub in Nahant. Additionally, our series of musical concerts showcase Tony Funches, Jimmy Honohan, Gordon Michaels and Alvis, all popular musicians at the Center. Gordon will pay tribute to the men who made soul music great.

Just a reminder that our book club meets on most Wednesdays. Up next: “The Midnight Library” by Matt Haig. The book has been on the New York Times bestseller list for many weeks so we are bound to have lively discussions after reading it. Rounding out the month is our “Paint the Town” class as well as a visit from “Golden Moments 4Elders.” The adorable golden retrievers who visit delight both residents and staff.

May birthdays are celebrated throughout the month. Wishing the following residents a very special day!
