A Note from former resident Mae Gould

I wanted to let all of you know that I’m doing well.  Shireen is typing this because I’m not very good at typing on the computer.  I went to see my orthopedic doctor today, and all is well.  He said that I could stop the hip precautions, but still be cautious and use my walker.  He told me to live life!!
I also wanted to let all of you know that I have a new phone.  It’s a phone that allows me to hear everyone much better.  I’m looking forward to hearing my phone ring!!  Please call, as I miss all of you.
Love, Mae

Thank You Note

Tom and I would like to thank you all for your prayers, cards and concerns.  He was so touched by all the kindness.  It greatly appreciated.
He is doing so much better than the Dr's expected.  Prayers were truly answered.  

Hoping to see you this winter!!

More Iowa-Texas Reunion 2016

Thanks to Cindi Dorsey for these:
"We had our Summer Leisure World Iowa Reunion. On August 10th, we met at Pizza Ranch in Marshalltown. We had a great afternoon (eating of course) and catching up on happenings in our lives. Several former residents came also. Charlie and Millie Lombard, Joann Whittington and LeRoy and June Nielsen. So happy to see them."

More from Farewell Cookout

Beth and I finally managed to communicate, and I procrastinated!  Here are some nearly week-old photos from last week's cookout.
After commenting that Beth never got Jim in the picture, I found this one. Mel Herrmann is back on the dance floor with his current favorite partner, Jo Anne Kurtenbach's mom.

Dan & Fran Foxhoven did plenty of sandal dancing! Smooth and cool, too.

Tony & Alma Antonacci showed us some moves, too!

Cindy was not only part of the honoree couple, she did duty serving the ice cream as well. Betty & Marilyn had their cake ready for the embellishment.

Cookout - Farewell Party

This evening our regularly scheduled cookout served a dual purpose. The residents in charge were Jerry & Cindy Keesee. It was a bittersweet occasion as they have placed there home up for sale and are moving to Apache Junction, Arizona. The rest of the residents conspired to give them a sendoff and let them know just how much we would miss them with a surprise Farewell Party. All attending were serenaded from 4 to 5:30 pm by Jim Staton (photos to follow if Beth & I can coordinate transfer), and a cake and card shower occupied a table of honor. Jo Anne Kurtenbach provided some photos of the honorees and the cake.

Thank You Note

Thank you to all who brought gifts, cards, and well wishes to our surprise 50th anniversary party. It's a blessing to have friends who care for you like family. You have touched our hearts.
Sincerely, Tom & Donna Colstrom
