Fun is a big part of the daily life at Serenity, and the 4th of July is always a popular holiday with our residents. This year’s party included a home-cooked family meal featuring barbecue, sides, fixings, and of course, a wide variety of desserts. Quite a few family members also joined in on the fun, coming for the food and staying for the company.

The original plan for the party was to enjoy time outdoors, but a heavy rain shower just before lunchtime moved everyone indoors. The family room filled with friends, family, and love.

Just before we began serving food, a resident’s family member serenaded everyone with a song. Afterwards a line formed from the kitchen to the hall and everyone’s mouths began to water as they smelled the wonderful spread. Our Manager stayed up throughout the night cooking a full 4th of July meal including ribs, brisket, sausage, potato salad, cole slaw, beans, and other sides. And the desserts! Cakes, pies, and variety of other treats brought smiles to the faces of the adults and kids alike. Needless to say, no one left hungry!

Celebrating holidays, events, and birthdays is a big part of the daily life at Serenity. Our residents make up a community, actually a family, that enjoys life together. Everyone is welcome, so drop by our next event and see the fun for yourself!
