Briarfield of Milan
MILAN The new year is off and running here at Briarfield! Our Thursday Bible study teacher, Pastor Ethan, is back from his holiday vacation and residents were anxious to continue their study of the book of Mark. Residents also appreciate their Tuesday Bible study teacher, Pastor John, and the churches that faithfully come in each Sunday to do services. Thanks go out to River of Life that came last week. With his usual flair, Jerry Simmerer kicked off the week with a bang! Cracking jokes and taking song requests put everyone in a great mood.
Two outings allowed many residents to enjoy getting away for awhile. Bowling at Star Lanes, along with pizza was good exercise and fun! Later in the week several people took advantage of going to lunch at Bob Evans.
Residents played many games, including horse shoes, Catch Phrase, Wii bowling and golf. Those who played loved being cheered on by the other residents! Sheila Prophet was pleasantly surprised to find herself the top golfer! Pat Highland once again amazed everyone with her fabulous piano skills. She plays it all, including requests, without any sheet music! She is an incredible talent! Nothing was hotter than Bingo! There were multiple winners, including Rachel Hemmer, Barb Keller, Dewey Miller, Faith Meyers, Shirley Rister, Richard Haryu, Bobby Hicks, Barb Fox, Teola Dunn, Pete Kedrow, Margaret Owens, Susan Shrock, Astrid Maynard, Carl Perkins, Brenda Siniard and Ray Housal.
