Large bead, small bead, large bead, small bead . . . resident Bridget Anderson completes yet another pearl necklace for the newest residents of the Crossroads family. Bridget prides herself in ensuring every lady has a stunning beaded necklace to wear to the Mother's Day tea social.
"It only takes me an hour and a half to make each necklace. Even though I am legally blind, I want to make sure each lady looks beautiful," she says.
The dining room overflowed Thursday, May 10, with elegantly decorated tables as over 60 people enjoyed the annual Mother's Day celebration. Beads, lace and shades of pink seemed to be the theme of the day.
One resident got up and joined Barbara as she performed favorite musical selections popular from days gone by. Violin strings were also heard as Barbara Bailey and pianist Vernette Mackley delighted the residents.
Bernice Hotchkiss, Gayle Corey and Margaret Fowler received "guest of honor" gifts for being the oldest, youngest, and mother with the most children.
Each resident sported a beautiful handmade corsage and many adorned themselves with decorated hats.
Residents now begin to look forward to the annual 4th of July barbecue which will take place on the front lawn where friends and family members will share in the festivities.blog comments powered by Disqus
