Â Â 04/05/12 Staff at Millerâ€™s Senior Living Community surprised the residents with a 9th anniversary party on Monday, April 2.Â Â To keep the party a surprise Activity Director Cindy Flagg gave the event a name that had nothing to do with the anniversary. Residents had no idea there was a party until they arrived at lunch and saw the buffet table spread Pizza Hut pizza, salad and delicious desserts.Â Â Since it was the 9th anniversary the Oak Hill CafĂ© was decorated with clouds, stars and cut outs of the number 9.Â Flagg opened the party by stating it was the staffâ€™s wish for everyone to be â€śfloating on Cloud 9â€ť during the party.Â Volunteers Juanita Stapan and Tracy Wilson helped serve drinks and desserts.
Every half hour during the meal Flagg asked Millerâ€™s trivia questions and those answering correctly received prizes.Â At noon, Flagg introduced the surprise entertainer for the day, which happens to be celebrating his 29th birthday in April.Â Rock & Roll Crooner Quentin Flagg visited with the residents while they finished their lunch.
Â Â Â Quentin began his one man show at 1:30 p.m. in the Main Lobby.Â In keeping with the #9 theme he sang hits from years ending in â€ś9â€ť and he also sang â€śLove Potion # 9â€ť.Â He continued the Millerâ€™s trivia by asking questions after every third song.
Following Quentinâ€™s concert the audience was treated to anniversary cake and ice cream in the cafĂ©.Â Department heads took time to sit and visit with residents and reminisce about the good times and fun events of the past nine years.
