¬† 02/20/14 Miller‚Äôs Assisted Living residents enjoyed a lovely homemade Valentine meal on the evening of February 14th while listening to beautiful harp melodies.¬† The evening menu included shrimp cocktail, beef tips with button mushrooms and saut√©ed onions over noodles, fresh asparagus and a crusty roll.¬† Angel food cake with fresh strawberries was served for dessert.¬† Volunteer Tracie Wilson acted as wine steward for the evening.¬† Her daughters Autumn and Makayla helped decorate and also served the shrimp cocktail appetizer.
¬† Harpist Anna Hagen of Goshen provided the dinner music.¬† Hagen is an entrepreneurial teen who is home educated.¬† She loves music, literature and art and is studying to be a writer through a long distance collegiate learning program called CollegePlus.¬†
Hagen began playing harp at the age of nine on a 36 string Triplet Signature lever harp which is a mid-size harp with a beautiful shape and a magnificent sound. She nicknamed the beautiful instrument Sigi, short for Signature. ¬†Sigi is light weight and transportable and is Hagen‚Äôs primary harp for outdoor weddings, and senior living facilities.¬† For more info about Hagen or to hire her for an event you may go to her website www.annahagenharpist.com.
As the evening came to a close each resident received a box of Valentine conversation hearts and a Valentine card from Activity Director Cindy Flagg.¬† For more information about upcoming public events at Miller‚Äôs call 574-936-9801 and ask for Anna Corbett.¬†
