 Thanksgiving Dinner 

 (11-28-2019) 

(2019-11-12) THANKSGIVING DINNER - 

Dear residents

 

Thanksgiving sign-up sheets will go up on the easel in the library this afternoon. There will be a box with envelopes near the easel for your virtual tickets. Tickets will be $6 per person and checks can be made out to SCCE Women's club. Please place your money in the envelope, fill out the information on the front and drop it in the slot on the box. Please also make sure you fill out the sheet on the easel with your information and what you plan to bring to share. Your names will be added to a master list which we will check off at the door.

 

Doors will open at 1 pm with dinner being served at 2. The menu will consist of the committee making the turkeys, ham, dressing and gravy. Your contributions will round out our meal. We always have plenty of food.

 

The sign-up sheet will come down by noon on November 25th so we can plan the shopping we need to do.

 

Visiting family and friends are always welcome. Please make sure to follow the above instructions so we know how much food to prepare. This also gives us a count for table settings.

 

We are so blessed to be able to share thanksgiving with all our friends and neighbors who do not have family here. Please don't be alone on this special holiday. Come join your neighbors for this celebration, make new friends, and eat till you are stuffed!

 

Any questions, please contact Cathy Chajec at 708-280-8910.

(2019-11-09) Thanksgiving - We have a chairperson & Need Committee Volunteers - 

Dear Residents:

I, Cathy Chajec, have volunteered to Chair the Thanksgiving Dinner on November 28, 2019.  I am desperately looking for volunteers to help make this a wonderful holiday for all those who are staying in the Estates.  With many helpers, it is an easy dinner to put on.  There is a sign-up sheet in the library area where you can place your name and contact number if you choose to help out.  I will be looking for turkey bakers, kitchen help preparing the dressing & gravy, turkey carvers,  decorating help, and clean up. 

If I receive enough help with the preparations, I will post a sign up sheet in the library on November 14th.  Cost will be $6 per person and a dish to pass.  One person, a dish to feed 6; and couple, a dish for 12. Such items as mashed or sweet potatoes, green beans, corn carrots or other vegetables, cranberry relish, deviled eggs, or other relish tray, or pie/dessert.

There will be a women's club box and envelopes to fill out and put your money in.  These are considered virtual tickets and we will have a list made up so we know who and how many are coming.

The menu will consist of Turkey, Ham, Dressing, and Gravy prepared by the committee.

For any new residents, this is a good way to get your "feet wet" and see what it takes to be part of a crew to host a party.

Everyone in the Estates is welcome, as well as those family and friends who might be visiting.  It is a nice way to enjoy Thanksgiving as a community, without having to do all the cooking and cleaning involved in a home party. 

I hope you will consider helping in some way to make this event possible for all of our residents. 

Thank you for your consideration.

Cathy Chajec, 708-280-8910  if you have any questions.

 

(2019-11-07) Thanksgiving - 

Thanksgiving is right around the corner and we need co-chairs to head up this event. Grab a friend and sign up. This is a way that our residents can have Thanksgiving together as a Sunshine family when we are not celebrating with our individual families. If that is something that interests you, please contact me. Thank you!

 Veterans' Day Tribute (11-11-2019) (COMPLETE) 

(2019-11-10) CHANGE OF PLAN - Veterans Day Tribute: 

There is a slight change of plan for the Veterans Day Tribute being held in Retzlaff Hall tomorrow (11-11).


The program will be starting at 3:30 PM (instead of 3 PM). Social time will be at 4:30. Dinner will be at 5.

Also, if you have a picture as or of a veteran you would like to post on the Bulletin Board during the ceremony & dinner, please bring it with you before the ceremony and we'll get it up there.

Please spread the word about these changes as there are quite a few folks who still haven't provided an e-mail to Beth Parrish (e-mail admin) in order to start receiving the Sunshine E-mails.

Questions - call Lenore Combs
 

(2019-11-07) Veteran's Day: 

This Monday, November 11th there will be a Veteran’s Day Program in Retzlaff Hall at 3 pm. Following the program there will be happy hour at 4:30 followed by a potluck at 5 pm.

If you are interested in participating in the program on Monday, there will be a planning meeting on Friday, Nov 8th at 3 pm in the library. Lenore Combs will be organizing the program for Monday, but she needs volunteers to help with flags, readings ..... Hope to see you there!

(2019-11-07) WOMEN'S CLUB, Veteran's Day - 

We are hoping to have a Veterans Day program here at Sunshine on Monday 11 November 2019 with a Potluck to follow. There is a sign-up sheet for volunteers in the Library.

 

This is usually a 2part deal – one Patriotic and the other a social Potluck.

  • In the past John and I have assisted with the Flag Ceremony (Patriotic side) while Marian Young handles the Potluck side.

  • We need Flag bearers and someone to talk on Veterans day.

  • We can consider a Flag retirement ceremony outside or whatever you like. Also, included in the Opening will be a 2 minute of silence observed calling for all people to pause in honor of the service and sacrifice of our Veterans throughout the history of the Nation.

  • We will also honor our Canadian Veterans.

 

There will be sign-up sheet in the Lounge for a Flag Detail and for the Potluck. If anyone wants to say a few words about the day – step up. Honor our Veterans and their families.

No support = no program but let’s hope for the best.

(2019-10-16) Veterans Day Tribute - 

Dear Friends,

Please give this communication your best consideration. Sunshine is a great place to live because we have great people living here. I am representing the following event.

Veterans Day - 11 November - Monday

Sunshine is planning a Veterans Day appreciation.

In the past it has been a ceremony followed by a Pot Luck.

Marian Young knows about the Pot Luck and we are requesting help for this.

About the ceremony - If we have a posting of the Colors, we need several folks to carry these flags - John Combs will take the lead.

Lenore can do Flag Retirement Ceremony where a Flag will be burned - under safe conditions etc. We need YOU!

Last year Helen Perry spoke about Veterans Day, Carolyn Clements passed out Patches for the Veterans etc...….

Call me if you are interested. It would be a shame not to recognize our Veterans.
