A cozy atmosphere, great food, music, family, and friends made Thanksgiving dinner at Sweetgrass a true family celebration. “We gather on this day to be thankful for what we have,” says recreation coordinator Mailyn Fornoles, “for the family we love, the friends we cherish and for the blessings that will come. We had a great time celebrating our Thanksgiving.”

Highlights included the delicious Thanksgiving feast, including turkey, ham, veggies, pies and pudding, prepared by Food Services Supervisor Brittany Bittorf and her kitchen team which including Christian Gil in his second week on the job.

Autumn-themed decorations were put up by Mailyn and the new Health Care Aide, Joanne Grenier. And the music was provided by maintenance man Greg Lacombe, resident Evelyn Norberg and her son Benny. “Evelyn and her son played a lot of old-time country,” says Mailyn. “They all took turns playing old songs.”
