This week, the Good Samaritan Society has been celebrating Senior Living Week at Heritage Grove in East Grand Forks. The event culminates with a festival beginning at 2 p.m. Friday (Sept. 13).
Doesn’t this sound fun?
A panel of celebrity judges will taste cookies baked throughout the week by staff members. Inspired by the cooking show Chopped, inside the cookies are such ingredients as lemonade peeps and corn chips. Judges will choose the best cookie and residents of Heritage Village also will enter apple pies they’ve baked for judging.
The community is invited to join Heritage Grove’s festivities on Friday. It will include a sing-a-long and refreshments. The program will be in Good Samaritan’s chapel at 2122 River Road NW, East Grand Forks.
According to Gretchen Graf, Director of Resource Development, Senior Living Week honors those who live and work in senior housing plus it encourages good health through joyful living. Using the theme Homemade Happiness, Heritage Grove has highlighted the simple things which make life positive for everyone – a picnic lunch, homemade cookies and coffee, as well as conversation among friends.
The Evangelical Lutheran Good Samaritan Society owns and operates more than 240 long-term healthcare centers and senior living communities across the country, including Heritage Grove in East Grand Forks. The Society’s mission is to share God’s love in word and deed by providing shelter and supportive services to older persons and others in need, believing that “In Christ’s Love, Everyone Is Someone.”
