STAFF HOLIDAY PARTY


All staff members were invited to the annual holiday party in early December.
Once again they enjoyed great food and great fun! There were team competitions which caused a lot of laughter, Christmas caroling, and about 40 prizes
were given away. We had an impromptu Christmas sweater/shirt contest! Ben
Benischek & Nick Swim won. Santa even made an appearance to hand out the
gift cards. Happy Holidays to all!

PICTURES WITH SANTA


On Sat. Dec. 12th, Santa took a break from
his very busy schedule to stop by Eastmont
for a visit. Residents and staff were invited
to have pictures taken with him or enjoy cookies and hot chocolate. About 20
children stopped by to Santa what they wanted for Christmas.

CAROLS CORNER
Happy New Year to all
Eastmont staff. Thank you for
helping to make our residents
holidays enjoyable in so many
ways through special programs
and events, beautiful decorations,
warm welcomes to visitors, and
special dinners and parties. I
recognize that many of this takes
extra time and preparation and I
appreciate all of your efforts.
We continue to work slowly
on the potential South project.
Like most things, it is becoming
apparent that we cant have
everything on our wish list all at
once, so now we are recalibrating
that list to find what might be
more feasible. There are still no
firm timelines on the readiness of
a South project.
The facelift for The Summit
has begun and we are looking
forward to it. We have begun a
new Capital improvement list for
our campus and will begin
prioritizing that list of needed
improvements soon.
We are
committed to keep working on
updating this campus for the
future.
I wish you all a Happy 2016!
