Valentines Day 2023 was filled with hearts and smiles
We have a lot going on here at Noble Horizons! First, I want to let you know that after twenty years of serving our Noble community, Caroline Burchfield is moving on, but her mark will endure. Caroline's incredible commitment and dedication to making Noble Horizons a well-renowned household name in our community cannot be overstated. My name is Danielle Bailey, and I will be stepping into Caroline's role, and I know I have very big shoes to fill. I've been an employee of Noble Horizons also for 20 years - I started in the Dietary Department before I was even married. I continued to serve in the Recreation Department as a Therapeutic Recreation Director, went on to become the Memory Care Program Director and still continue to serve as the Pastoral Care Director. I'm happy to step into this role as Directory of Community Relations and I am also truly committed to keeping our facility and community united. I am looking forward to working with you all.
As the chill of winter reaches the northwest corner, we have been taking advantage of our magnificent indoor spaces with music, art and fine dining experiences. We are truly blessed to have such a vast range of comfortable spaces we can utilize in the cold winter months. Lady Windermere's Fan, our Resident Art opening and Accordion Connection filled the halls of Noble in these recent weeks. As you can see by the photo above, we were feeling the love from Valentine's Day and celebrated with live music by Perter Porier and raspberry infused champagne. A sweet treat for both our pallets and listening ears. We also recently welcomed back our volunteer Jim North. Jim has been our Monday "piano man" for years and after a brief hiatus is back to bring the joyful sounds of the piano every Monday social hour in our cozy clubhouse. We've missed you, Jim. Coming up, another Book and Tag sale is quickly approaching, and we would like to invite everyone - Friday March 31st and Saturday April 1st from 9am-2pm we will open are doors to the public. (And for a small fee of $10 you can be the first to look through our treasures on Friday from 8am-9am.) Please spread the word for there will be something for all.
Lady Windemere's Fan
We were extremely lucky to host an evening event with the talented Hotchkiss students with a one-of-a-kind performance of Lady Windemere's Fan, followed by a scrumptious dinner prepared by our very own Noble Dietary staff. The residents smiles and conversations left us all wanting more. They surely will be welcomed back!
The Accordion Connection and Museum Company located in Cannan CT delighted us with a discussion and show and tell. The residents and staff were able to get up close and personal and hear facts on the history of the accordion. Bringing some of the more elaborate instruments for display, this exhibit truly exemplified the craftsmanship that goes into making the accordion. If you have a chance to visit the Museum please do so. It is an experience you will never forget.
