Spring Lake Village: Guess Who? Childhood photos of residents and staff were displayed all week, everyone got in on the fun of matching names to the pictures. Staff Scavenger Hunt: Residents had a clue list to go off of and made their way around to the various SLV departments to see if they could guess who the mystery staff members are. Our kickoff event was "For the Love of Music" which residents and staff played a variety of music from piano to drums and even a ukulele. Residents and staff participated in a walk-a-thon by tracking their mileage using pedometers provided by the Wellness Department Proceeds from the walk-a-thon support the 2021 fundraiser for NAMI--National Alliance on Mental Illness. On Wednesday we held out SLV Activity Trails for residents to follow the trail to visit various SLV Committee information tables scattered around the campus. We also held a virtual Talent Show with pre-recoded acts from a variety of residents and staff that was shown via the in-house TV channel. On Friday we held a special super foods lunch for residents and Colin Miller presented a wonderful live video conference "The Great Reset"
