The “Camp Pickett” invaded PCR on June 2nd.  Camp Pickett is a two month summer  intergenerational program designed to benefit Elders, staff and their children. The children (who attend while their parents work) are involved in varies activities throughout the day with the Elders both inside and outside of the facility.  They have gone to Standing Stone Park for a day of fun enjoying a picnic, wading in the creek and crawdad hunting.  They also had a pool party at the home of staff member, Chrissy Smith, RN.

Pickett celebrated National Nursing Home Week at the beach.  During the beach week elder were engaged in many different beach activities.  From making beach jewelry, playing beach trivia, fishing for treasure to playing beach volley ball.  They had tons of fun and food at the Luau that concluded  the  week at the beach.

The ceremony included a visit from State Representative Kelly Keisling and the music from the WMU’s from the First Baptist Church.  Chaplin Mike Allen lead the devotions and sang a beautiful rendition of “God Bless the USA.”

Kelly Keisling and Jeff Amonett both spoke to a full house.

The day started with April  showers, but the elders were still able to bring home the May flowers.  They started their trip to the Greenhouses in the rain, but by the time they finished shopping the rain had subsided.  The elders then had a picnic lunch at Sgt. York’s  Gristmill along side a beautiful the river.  Then back home for everyone to start the garden preparations and enjoy all the pretty new  flowers and plants.

We had a total of five different Easter Egg Hunts in two days for our elders to help with, watch, and join.  We started hiding and hunting on Thursday afternoon with the first grade class followed by the kindergarteners.  Shortly after the children, the staff had their turn to hunt.  Friday morning was a prefect time for the home school group to come out and hunt some eggs.   We then assembled for a special Good Friday church service delivered by Mike Allen and his son, Josh.  Friday afternoon the elders had a big time hunting with the help of our staff.  We were so blessed to have two perfect days of fun.  We would like to thank everyone who participated.

In recognition of National Volunteer Week the devoted volunteers of PCR where acknowledged for their contributions and dedication to enhance the quality of life for our elders.  As a token of our appreciation the volunteers were given a small gift, provided a delicious lunch and musical entertainment by Bailey and Brianna Amomett.  We would like to thank all of our volunteers that were unable to attend the celebration.

HEE HAW presented by the DAV/DAVA with music by the Cross-Brothers Band and the Allen Family was held at the Pickett County K-8 School Saturday March 29th as a fundraiser for our Annual Elder Vacation. We would like to thank everyone that came out and contributed to our fundraiser, the DAV/DAVA, Cross-Brothers Band, and Allen Family for putting on a great show! We would also like to thank: BMC, B&K, Brown’s Funeral Chapel, and Fitzerald’s Glider Kits for their contribution to our Elder’s Vacation.

The ladies from the Pickett County Knitters Group paid us a visit this week bearing gifts.  These talented ladies from our community delivered beautiful handmade shawls and lap blankets.  We enjoyed modeling and admiring our new gifts.  Even Jeff got in on the modeling.  Their thoughtfulness is so very much appreciated.
