While it has been difficult through the pandemic, Pickering is finally able to say goodbye to masks and welcome a wonderful whirlwind of laughter, smiles, and reconnections. Without a doubt, residents have been keeping very busy at Pickering this summer!
From live concerts to cooking demos, and so much more! Pickering Manor Director of Life Enrichment Director Andrea Eells and employee Roger Anderson coordinated a delightful ‘mini’ car show for Pickering Manor residents and staff.
The residents enjoyed seeing an assortment of cars from their earlier years, ranging from a 1941 Willys Street Rod to a 2005 Ford Mustang. The generous car owners that shared their time and cars were Bill Cook, Roy VanderWyck, Jim Garner (on behalf of Eileen Steele), Joe Matthews, Jim Levan, Roger Anderson, and Chet Gessemeyer.
The fun didn’t stop there, using money she raised on her own, Sol Feinstone Elementary School Student Ayla Dickinson brought Alpacas from Head Over Hooves Farm to visit the residents of Pickering Manor. Ayla also brought goats to visit the Pickering residents last fall.
Her big heart and generosity brought many smiles to the Residents. Ayla and the owners of Head Over Hooves Farm even took the Alpacas to the windows of the residents who could not make it outside that day.
“Keeping our community vibrant is a focus of the Enrichment Team everyday as we curate programs and events intended to positively impact a resident’s mind, body, and spirit. We are very excited to share all that we have in store for the fall,” said Director of Life Enrichment Andrea Eells.
