Residents enjoying the Hollis Town Band at Courville

Activities? Did someone ask about activities?

We’re glad you asked! After all, activities are a huge part of what makes our centers special. We have the standard activities such as Bingo, charades, and bowling, but even better, we encourage residents to head outside of the facilities to enjoy activities and events in the community. And there are times when we bring the community to them!

Recently, we got our residents involved in celebrating National Lollipop Day and National Pandemonium Day. The residents’ engagement – and the smiles – were a great reminder to everyone that at any age, our loved ones enjoy adventures – and it’s always more fun to enjoy it right along with them!

National Lollipop Day

The Courville at Manchester residents worked diligently to make 200 lollipop gifts to lollipop day share with each other and our staff in celebration of this national event, held annually on July 20.

By way of history: Lollipops originally may have been a way to preserve nuts and berries in honey during prehistoric times. George Smith is credited with inventing the modern lollipop in 1908, and in 1931 trademarked the name which, according to the National Day Calendar, he claims came from his favorite racing horse, Lolly Pops.

National Pandemonium Day

Lollipop dayPandemonium is defined by Merriam-Webster as a “wild uproar,” and on Pandemonium Day, anything goes! Chaos, madness and unexpected surprises are all a part of Pandemonium Day, so our staff and residents embrace the pandemonium and go a little crazy!

As a surprise to the staff, the residents assembled little tokens of thanks and then went around and passed them out to all employees.

Fisher Cats Games

Our residents love sitting outside and enjoying the sights and sounds of the ball game and – of course, the visits Fungo, the Fisher Cats’ mascot, makes to the suite!

The Fisher Cats are the Double-A affiliate of the Toronto Blue Jays major league club.

The Hollis Town Band at Courville at Nashua

It’s the perfect Courville resident at band concertplace to enjoy the big band music! To make it even better, the dining services staff whips up special treats for the occasion — this year’s concoction: root beer floats!
