Holiday Time at Noble Horizons

Parties and get-togethers with friends and family have been constants in the year-end calendar at Noble. 2016 marked the 20th anniversary of the Auxiliary's Festival of Trees, an event that has come to be a must-see for the wider community. School children arrive in waves to marvel at the glittering lights and decoration. The annual Holiday Fair of handmade goods and Christmas decorations coincided with the opening of the Festival, so everywhere there were crowds full of holiday happiness. The Gala Party was the finale to the festival but not the end of the season's parties. Christmas Cheer devoted to residents, staff and families saw an especially large turnout with platters of food and drinks all around. Concerts and a resident art show were shoehorned in and plans are set for medical levels of living to mark the season with parties nearly up to Christmas day.
