06/03/11¬† Residents of Miller‚Äôs Senior Living Community have been busy with creating fun projects the past few days.¬† They were given some fresh rhubarb by a volunteer and they found a recipe for easy rhubarb freezer jam.¬† Several of the ladies gathered in the Recreation Center Kitchen with Activity Director, Cindy Flagg and made light work of preparing the jam.¬† The only problem they encountered was that it tasted so good; it never made it to the freezer!¬† They had enough jam that all those who participated were able to take a jar home.¬† The remainder of the jam was set out at lunch on Saturday for all to enjoy.¬†
On Monday morning the residents were invited to participate in a special craft project taught by Kendra Peterson of Argos.¬† Using a dish towel, a dish cloth and a hot pad the group made an angel towel to use as a gift or to hang in their own apartment.¬† Peterson took the group step-by-step through the process of making the angel.¬†¬†¬† With the different color combinations of towels and hot pads the angels all turned out beautiful and unique.¬†
To find out upcoming Miller‚Äôs events open to the public call 1-574-936-9801 and ask for Anna Corbett or Cindy Flagg.
