Senior Home dog PUMPKIN parade....Attention volunteers!

Those that volunteered for Senior Helpers  ATTENTION PLEASE! 

I spoke to Deborah and she already had someone else scheduled for a halloween activity so we are taking a pre-Thanksgiving pet parade!  We will be serving low sugar pumpkin pie, sugar free chocolates, etc.  So, please come help.  

IF YOU VOLUNTEER, PLEASE CONSIDER THIS EVENT A COMMITMENT ONCE A MONTH.  Deborah really wants the seniors to have a consistent group.  She told me that people come and then they go away.  Too random.  She wants consistency so seniors are more comfortable and get to recognize people and look forward to the events.  If too random, they forget.  I am volunteering once a month with my dogs so we can be there twice a month.  They will not pay for any more background checks because they have and no one shows up.   

So far, we have the following with background checks:

Jean, Karen, Jawna, Jim, Ann, Martha, Sheryl, Elsa, Evelyn, Diane, and myself.

We are visiting the seniors this morning with an amazing dog parade.  The dogs will be dressed up in their best pumpkin costume!  We will post pictures!  If you would like to sign up for next time, please do!  DECEMBER WE ARE WRAPPING GIFTS FOR THEM.  NEED WRAPPING PAPER, TISSUE, RIBBON, AND CARDS. 

I am really working on making time to attend to these seniors who have NO VISITORS.  Priorities have to be shifted at times.  It can't be all about fun or us, sometimes we have to get tough and tighten our belts and make an extra effort for someone else. 

I encourage you to join us for the NEXT EVENT IN DECEMBER: Dog parade for the holidays....or whatever we can come up with to make a difference in their lives.  You have to give yourself plenty of time so the nursing home completes a background check.  It takes about a week.  

hugs,

Claudia[masked] text me ok.

    Do I need to have a background check done to participate next week? I had one done several years ago when my children were in elementary school- do they expire?
