It’s only the third week in January and we are off to a great start with activities and healthy living. Colleen Ostafy, the Noble’s Pond Lifestyle Director held the first Coffee with Colleen planning session for the year. Wow! 2014 will be a party-packed year with plans already in the works for a Super Bowl Party, St. Patrick’s Day Party, Memorial Day Cook Out, 4th of July Pool Party, and a 50’s Dance Party just to name a few. The residents at Noble’s Pond are very excited about all the day trips that were discussed such as a trip to Historic Cape May, Major League baseball games, a Picnic at Delaware Park, bus trip to New York, the annual Delaware State Fair in Harrington, a shopping trip Peddler’s Village, a Day in Philadelphia, and a Cruise of Baltimore’s Inner Harbor.
Bus and Day trips aren’t the only traveling Noble’s Pond folks will be doing this year. There are long weekends planned for a Girls get-a-way trip, and also a Holiday trip to The Biltmore Estate in North Carolina. Local activities are also planned such as a “Night at the Races” at Dover Downs, with dinner at the “Winner’s Circle Restaurant.” The Coffee with Colleen meeting also had special guest speaker Chef Kris Etze who gave us all some great pointers about healthy eating and living. She answered many questions from residents, topped off her presentation by sharing some healthy munchies. We are looking forward to a healthy and fun packed 2014!
