We were privileged to have John Kuntz, a Luther music major have his J term internship with us. He provided a lot of one on one music therapy, piano concerts, sing a longs, worked with our bell choir and visited and played his keyboard for a lot of residents. He also provided three concerts for the Assisted Living tenants. It was great to have him here and see how the residents responded to music.

We have been watching live video cams of animals all over the world on the TV and computer in the activity room. Some of the favorite animals are seals, sheep, dogs, cats, bears and pandas. They are very interesting to watch and we are learning more about these animals. We are looking forward to watching the Decorah eagle cam as well.
Just a reminder if you would like to reserve our kitchenette, activity room or chapel for an event please call and visit with Lynn or Christine in the activity department. These rooms are reserved on a first come, first served basis and are a great way to have a private party or meal with your loved ones.
Happy Valentine’s Day! Lynn, Recreation Program Director
