Happy Holidays from Parker
The recent snow in the Northeast is a reminder for me that the holidays are just around the corner. In the rush of preparing for this season, it’s easy to miss the simple things. For me, it’s witnessing our volunteers set up the wreaths, Christmas trees and menorahs at all our homes, the holiday parties we host that bring the families we serve together, and the smells and sounds that accompany this season.
I recently had the chance to hear our choir, (which includes participants from our Adult Day Center and residents from Parker at Stonegate assisted living and the Evergreen Way neighborhood at Parker at River Road), preparing for its annual concert in December. This group, led by the recreation team, works so hard to deliver a performance of the Hanukah and Christmas tunes we all know and love. It’s difficult not to feel pride and joy when listening to them practice.
I encourage you to step back and enjoy the simple moments that this season brings. They are there – don’t miss them.
Wishing you a very Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and a blessed New Year. I hope you enjoy our holiday video card.
From our family at Parker to yours,
