In observance of National Assisted Living Week, September 11 â€“ 17, Millerâ€™s Senior Living Community will host a series of events developed as a special opportunity to bring together the residents, families, employees, volunteers and the surrounding community Â to celebrate â€śLiving Lifeâ€ť.
Â Â Â Â â€śLiving Lifeâ€ť, this yearâ€™s theme, means enjoying activities and pursuing passions, whatever they may be.Â â€śLiving Life is a lifelong pursuit of happiness and growth,â€ť said Tracie Sroka, Resident Service Director of Millerâ€™s Senior Living Community. â€śThese activities demonstrate the commitment of assisted living professionalsÂ providing care and services to residents that respect their dignity and enhance their quality of life.â€ť
Â Â Â Â The weekâ€™s events will begin on Saturday September 11th at 2:30 p.m. with â€śA Tribute to Patsy Clineâ€ť by former Plymouth resident Maggie Kubley. Kubley is the daughter of Jon and Mary Kubely of Plymouth and the granddaughter of Millerâ€™s resident, Katie Kubley.Â
Â Â Â Â As a seasoned actor, writer, singer, instrumentalist and performer, Kubleyâ€™s first solo performance was in the Webster Elementary talent show in 1992 where she
played â€śThe Yellow Rose of Texasâ€ť on the piano. From there she moved on to perform at both Lincoln Jr. High School and Plymouth High School before eventually earning her
BA in Theatre from Ball State University. After graduating, Maggie moved to Chicago where she now performs at venues throughout the city with her theatrical pop band, The Embraceables.Â The Embraceables recently returned from a tour to New York City, where they were met with praise.Â They will soon be working on their sophomore album.
Â Â Â Â Maggieâ€™s love for music was born out of a family who also loves music. She came to adore the vocal stylings and songs of Patsy Cline through her grandmother, Katie
played Patsy Cline for the young Maggie at night before she fell asleep.Â Ever since Maggie has been an avid fan of Patsy Cline and has added her most cherished songs to her repertoire.
