Memorial Garden commemorates loved ones
Memorial Day is traditionally a time when families gather to celebrate and remember the loved ones that we have lost, especially those who died in active military service. As with other holidays, Memorial Day celebrations were different this year. While we grieve the loss of our traditions, we are adapting to our circumstances and starting a new tradition here at our community.
We invited our residents and staff to create a Memorial Garden of pinwheel flowers on the front lawn around the canopy and in the Healthcare courtyard. Our Memory Care neighborhood created their own indoor Memorial Garden to enjoy on the 4th floor.
Names of loved ones were written on the pinwheel flower petals. Friday morning we placed the pinwheels around the campus grounds. Along with the pinwheels, we lined our drive and the courtyard with flags to commemorate the Memorial Day holiday and honor the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military.
