Hawaiian Luau at Riverside

Riverside Care held an Hawaiian Luau on March 10th. The facility decided they were tired of the cold weather and wanted to do something to celebrate the spring weather that is coming in, so they contacted Elvis and decided to hold a Hawaiian Luau!

The activity staff put together decorations with vivid colors to brighten everything up and put together a menu that consisted of Hawaiian sliders, fruit, and Hawaiian pizza with blue punch. All the elders and staff dressed in Hawaiian clothes and put on their leis. Elvis put on quite a Hawaiian show for our elders. The elders thoroughly enjoyed the show and the food, and now can’t wait for the warm springtime weather to get here!

Riverside Elder Vacation

On October 19, 2015, a couple of elders and staff took-off for a vacation of a lifetime to Nashville, Tennessee. They stayed for three nights and four days and toured all of Nashville.

Elders and staff went on the General Jackson, stepped on the stage of the Grand Ole Opry, watched Rascal Flatts at the world famous Grand Ole Opry, danced the afternoon away at the Wildhorse Saloon, and finished the last night up with the Nashville nightlife dinner theater. And, of course, they couldn’t leave Nashville without shopping at Opry Mills.
