07/20/11Staff at Millerâ€™s Senior Living Community transformed the residence into a western scene on Saturday as they held a western family round-up.Â Residents, staff, family members and volunteers were invited to attend the event which took place in the â€śOak Hill Saloon and Chuckwagon Restaurant.â€ťÂ The menu for the day included pulled pork, hot dogs, macaroni salad, potato salad, coleslaw, tortellini salad, baked beans and ice cold watermelon wedges.
Children and adults alike visited Nancyâ€™s Tattoo Parlor and Kathyâ€™s Petting Zoo.Â Family pictures were taken outside in front of a beautifully decorated western scene with bales of straw, a saddle, and a cowboy hat and boots.
Annie Keller, 11 year old great grand-niece of resident Marcy Sickmiller surprised everyone with Â a tap routineÂ to the song â€śCotton Eyed Joeâ€ť.Â The afternoon was made complete with a concert of country music by The Dune Country Band from Chesterton, In.Â The four piece band played favorite hits such as â€śMake The World Go Awayâ€ť, â€śJacksonâ€ť, â€śTop of the Worldâ€ť, and more.Â They ended the concert with a patriotic set to honor our countryâ€™s birthday.
