Craft Shows! Craft Shows!

It’s that time of year again!  The Mission Bell Tradewinds Craft Shows have kicked off & will be happening once a month through the season.  You can find vendors of every kind & are able to purchase just about anything.  Not only can you shop ’til you drop but you’ll find a little something to munch on also.  These shows are made possible not only by great vendors but by numerous volunteers (our incredible residents) who work to make sure that your shopping experience is the best.  Be sure to check us out in December – our biggest shows of the season.  The Tradewinds show will be on December 15 & the Mission Bell show will be on December 17.

Celebrating Our Veterans

We all gathered to celebrate our Veterans on Sunday afternoon.  The celebration included music, speakers and cake! Several Veterans shared some of their experiences from their service time.  Their stories made us laugh, cry & appreciate their service even more.  Many Veterans gave credit to their spouse who made a challenging time easier. Don Nimsger was given special recognition for being our most mature & World War II vet!  The MBTW quilting ladies made a quilt which was raffled off to one lucky Vet.  Ron Norbie won the quilt but chose to give it to Don Nimsger!  The celebration ended with cake, punch, coffee and many more stories.  Veterans – we appreciate your service to our country!

Trick Or Treat

We had a lot of fun Trick Or Treating and playing games at Mission Bell Tradewinds on Halloween night.  Approximately 300 kids went through the Trick Or Treat line on our Tradewinds side and approximately 400 went into the Mission Bell ballroom!  Wow – a lot of kids & adults – it was a great night!
The night was a huge success as there were many happy, smiling faces, both young and older.  The games at Mission Bell were a hit.  The kids enjoyed fishing, jumping, throwing and so on.  The adults were pleased that we had provided a safe environment for their children to enjoy the holiday and we were thanked numerous times. It was a pleasure to give something back to our community and surrounding area!

Halloween Kickoff!

Today we kicked off the 2018-2019 season here at Mission Bell Tradewinds.  150 of us gathered in the Tradewinds ballroom for a resident costume contest & lunch.  James & Trina, our Activity Directors led the celebration.  Several wore Halloween accessories and/or shirts but there were four brave souls who entered the contest!  Mo Haydeen, a mummy won first place.  Dave Balderson, the Grim Reaper, won second place.  Sally Balderson, a voodoo princess, won third place.  Lunch was served by Neva Thompson, several workampers and volunteers.  Pulled pork sandwiches, a pasta salad, beans & dessert were very good.  Thank you to everyone who helped.  We are off and running into a new winter season at Mission Bell Tradewinds Resort!

Let’s Eat Out!

It doesn’t always have to be a potluck in order for everyone to get together! It started of with a small group, but when you invite one person and that person invites another, let’s just say everyone was there! The gathering happened at 492 BBQ in Mission TX. Everyone enjoyed some delicious food and each other’s company.
