From The Desk Of The Executive Director
Summer is here! Every time I think of summer, I think of sunny days, blooming flowers, and barbecues.
Speaking of barbecues, here at DevonHouse, nothing says summer like seeing everyone out on the patio on Wednesdays enjoying lunch right off the grill. The Wednesday patio picnics are such a fun tradition. If you haven’t been to one yet, I encourage you to head out and try something different!
I’m also looking forward to seeing everyone at our Friends & Family brunch on June 9th. Join us for a fun day — brunch is sure to be a blast! It’s a great time to relax, enjoy great food and company, and get an early start on celebrating Father’s Day. Whether you’re celebrating your own father or the other important men in your life, this is a lovely time to acknowledge the presence of special people who have guided us.
As we all look forward to the fun, long days ahead, I wish you a very happy, safe, and fun summer!

Summer is in full swing and so are our patio picnics! Join us every Wednesday at lunch for food right off the grill.
Our Friends & Family Brunch this month celebrates Father’s Day. We can accommodate up to eight guests for each resident. Please RSVP soon.
The brunch seating for guests is at 1:00 pm. If the 1:00 pm seating fills, we will offer seatings at noon. Please RSVP to the front office before we are booked! These are very popular events.
The theme meal this month is “Under the Boardwalk.” Step right up to the dining room on June 20th for boardwalk-style favorites like corn dogs, french fries, and waffles with ice cream, just to name a few!

News from Activities
June is all about warmer weather and dads! Summer has arrived and we’re getting outside for the weekly patio picnics and enjoying everything the outdoors has to offer.
We’re also bringing a bit of the outdoors inside with our Lifelong Learning presentation this month. Join Mari Gruber of the Bear Mountain Butterfly Sanctuary for “The Wonder of Butterflies.” Learn more about the beauty of butterflies and unique role they play in our local ecology.
Our next Friends & Family Brunch is coming up on June 9th! This is a great opportunity to celebrate all things Dad a week early. Please be sure to RSVP with me directly if you are inviting guests to brunch.
