News from Chef Jim’s Kitchen

For December we will be celebrating Christmas! We will have the special meal at the lunch time hours and will feature fine Christmas ham. The pie sale is up and running. Holiday pies are available for order in the main office until January 1. We will bake, box, and hand deliver on the day you want to take your pie. The pie sale will run till January 1st. Baker’s club will meet later in the month and we will be making special Christmas cookies to celebrate as well.

News from the Activity Department

Get ready for another busy holiday season! We have many special events planned.

‘Festive Sweater Fridays” are back! Every Friday in December wear your most sparkly, glitzy, festive or funny holiday sweater. Get in the spirit! We will make four trips to the “Lights in the Parkway.” Space is limited, so please sign up early. Make sure to look your best for our annual “Holiday Portraits” scheduled for December 12th. You’ll receive a framed copy of your photo to share. It’s a lovely tradition here, which is very much appreciated by DevonHouse families.

A new tradition we are starting this year is “The elf on the shelf.” Our elf will arrive December 1st. He will get into all sorts of mischief until he leaves us at the end of the month. Be sure to keep your eyes open daily for his latest hijinks.

Friday December 19th we will hold our annual “Holiday Craft Bazaar” in our living room. We are busy working on many handmade holiday ornaments and decorations.

Happy Holidays – Melissa

P.S. Our Halloween Photo booth was a big hit! The pictures are on display in our scrapbook in the living room.
