Feeling the Love at Noble
The first month of the year flew by as we tackled the chilly New England weather indoors. New Year celebrations, musical performances and dining room conversation kept us warm, and we have been looking forward to the excitement of February with great anticipation. The groundhog emerged, and with his mystical powers predicted an early spring and it is just what our residents were hoping for! They have been starting conversations about what they should plant in their communal garden, their favorite spring flowers, and spending more time outdoors on our beautiful campus. When you think spring, if cleaning is on your mind, the Noble Axillary would like to remind you that they are accepting donations for their upcoming Tag Sale in May. Of course before we start planting our gardens, we have plenty more winter left. We will be celebrating Valentine's Day soon and as family and friends are coming up with ways to show their love for one another, we continue to come up with new and creative ways to show our love to you with programs that will soothe your mind, body and soul. Please see below and visit the Events page on our website for more details. Let's all spread the love together.
