Celebrate with us on this special day of independence. Every 4th of July, Bell Liberty, in Philadelphia, is tapped… although not actually rung, 13 times in honor of the original 13 American colonies. On this day at Creekside, we will celebrate by enjoying a red, white, and blue frozen bomb pop and exploding open a homemade (by our residents) pinata shaped like TnT. No matches here, just good old-fashioned fun with a stick to see what surprises fall out.
World Chocolate Day
Established in 2009, World Chocolate Day marks the supposed anniversary of the day that this iconic dessert made its first entrance into Europe in 1550. In order to craft a bar of chocolate, seeds from a cacao tree are covered with banana leaves and left to ferment, at which point they are called cocoa beans. Once the cocoa beans have arrived at their processing plant, they are roasted slowly at a low temperature. Then it’s time to separate the shells from the nibs so that the nibs can be ground to a fine powder called cocoa liquor. Today July 7th, we will have some of this sweet treat to curb everyone’s fierce chocolate cravings.
Pina Colada Delights
Bring me two Pina Coladas, I’ll have one for each hand. A line from this famous Garth Brooks song can be a reality on Saturday, July 10th. Today the activity team will be your resident bartender (non-alcoholic), of course. We can all pretend we are at the beach in the middle of Nashville. Don’t worry; your loved ones don’t have to drive home and you won’t have a hangover the next day.
As we practice proper social distancing protocols in our community, we are proud to feature modified programming to continue providing vibrancy for our residents and employees.
