July has arrived and so have summertime specials! We will be celebrating Independence Day with a patio picnic featuring favorites fresh off the grill. Speaking of the patio, Wednesday patio picnics continue throughout the summer at lunchtime. There is a separate menu available in the dining room, too.
There are two Tuesday brunches this month, with a special menu on July 13th and July 27th.
Every Friday we are alternating between ice cream socials and wine and cheese socials. Be sure to check the dining special events calendar located outside the dining room.
Other special events include:

News from Activities
We are into our summer groove! Summer concerts continue throughout July, so come join us on the back patio every Tuesday at 6:30 pm (weather permitting). Enjoy the extra daylight!
I’m excited to announce that you’ll be seeing more friendly faces for activities starting this summer. The activity department has expanded with the addition of Kelly Carwell, our new memory care activity director. She is getting to know everyone and will offer additional activities.
Friendly and familiar faces are making their way to DevonHouse, too. Our volunteers have returned, including Lehigh Valley Therapy Dogs on the first Monday of each month. Robin and Larry are here, too, for rosary every Friday at 3:00 pm. in the activity room.
Please be sure to follow DevonHouse on social media to see the activities happening here.
