News from Chef Jim’s Kitchen

Allentown Senior Living Food and Beverage ManagerHappy new year!

We will be celebrating New Year’s Day with a traditional pork and sauerkraut meal. Eating pork and sauerkraut on the holiday is a Pennsylvania Dutch tradition that is said to bring good luck for the entire year.

We also will be celebrating Chinese New Year this month, with a meal, featuring favorites like stir fry, egg rolls, and fortune cookies, along with festive decorations for the holiday.

As ever, Friday happy hours continue. We’ll see you there!

Allentown Senior Living Activities DirectorNew year, new you!

What will you do that is new this year? January is the time of new beginnings, so this is the perfect time to step out and get involved in all of the fun activities here.

Perhaps pick up a new library book this month, or make a little magic in the new year with our magic show on January 25th! Or, if the new year is inspiring new creativity, we will have fun winter crafts on the calendar every Thursday.

If you’re looking for a sweet way to start of the new year, please stop by for a Girl Scout cookie sale on Sunday, January 23, from 1:00-3:00 pm.

There is a lot more ahead for 2022. As I always, I love hearing suggestions! Please come by and say hello, or contact me by email.
