05/13/11 Millerâ€™s Senior Living Community Activity Director and her volunteers invited the ladies of the facility to a Ladies Friendship Tea to honor all women for Motherâ€™s Day.Â Flagg is a firm believer that while not all woman are mothers; all women are certainly worthy of praise.
Residents were asked to bring a tea cup to the party with them.Â For those who did not bring a special cup; Flagg had gone shopping for china tea cups and saucers to ensure that every guest would have a tea cup to drink from.Â Volunteers Autumn and Makayla Wilson seated the ladies while Tracy Wilson and Juanita Stapan poured the hot water for the tea.Â The Wilson girls carried a tray of ten different teas and helped the ladies make their choices.Â The Millerâ€™s dietary staff prepared beautiful plates of finger foods for each table.
As the ladies of the facility enjoyed their tea the Wilson sisters each read a poem about tea and the soothing effect is holds.Â Â Â Flagg shared a poem entitled â€śDrinking From My Saucerâ€ť by Jimmy Dean.Â The poem speaks of all the wonderful things we each have in our lives such as family and friendship and it goes on to say â€śIâ€™m drinking from my saucer, because my cup has overflowedâ€ť.Â Â Some of the ladies shared stories and special memories of the tea cups they brought with them.
Following the friendship tea party the dance troupe â€śRagtime Ritzâ€ť under the direction of Chris Collier of Plymouth presented a dance demonstration of the Charleston and several fox trots.Â The dance troupeâ€™s expert demonstration and beautiful dance costumes brought back many wonderful memories for the ladies.
Men will be honored at Millerâ€™s Senior Living Community on the afternoon of Saturday June 18th with a cookout and an appearance by music tribute to The Blues Brothers:Â Quentin Flagg and Bill Downey both of Plymouth.Â For more information call 1-574-936-9801 and ask for Anna Corbett or Cindy Flagg.
