SHARE – It’s All About Being a Good Neighbor!
The Allendale Woman’s Club has been working with Allendale’s newest neighbors, Orchard Commons, to create a program to assist in the enrichment of the residents’ home life in Allendale. This new program, SHARE (Special Housing of Allendale Resident Enrichment) began in March as the AWC members facilitated activities with the residents. These activities include Game Night, Movie Night and a Morning Walking Club. To kickoff this partnership, the Orchard Commons residents gave tours of their living quarters. All activities will conclude in June 2011 and recommence in September 2011.
Movie night at Orchard Commons began Friday, March 11th. Pictured are the AWC members presenting a new microwave to the residents of Orchard Commons to help with popping the popcorn for the big night!
