“Dads are most ordinary men turned by love into heroes, adventurers, story-tellers, and singers of song.” -Pam Brown. We would like to thank everyone who came out to our Father’s Day celebration! We had a wonderful time playing a few games and had great food at our potluck!
In Mission Bell Tradewinds our Veterans and their families are celebrated! We appreciate the sacrifice that each one gives to allow us to live in the country we do. The colors are raised on important holidays with the help of our residing Verterans. On each side of the Resort, a Wall of Honor is displayed to salute each of our Veterans.
We all gathered on Sunday, May 13, to celebrate Mother’s. Some of the men volunteered to serve cake, fruit & punch to the ladies present. A big thank you to our servers Dave Balderson, Jim Mathews, Dale Back & Arlie Stolle. Scot read funny comments regarding Mother’s and the big day. We had prizes also! Mary Lou Stolle won a miniature rose bush for raising not only her children but grandchildren too! Marie Woods won a miniature rose bush for spending the most days in the hospital for the birth of a child – 10 days! Finally, Shirley Maxon won a Calgone Lotion set for having the most kids….9! We all had a great time and everyone left with a bag of candy – chocolate included, of course!
As the American flag waived high in honor of Memorial Day, the residents celebrated with a meal at the Tradewinds Hall. The park provided sloppy joe’s and residents brought sides for everyone to enjoy.
In late March, RVH sponsored an end of the season Luau. The day was perfect for an outdoor fiesta. We had so much fun! Residents were told to bring only something to sit on as everything would be provided! Games, prizes & food were the highlight of the event. The turnout was awesome & everyone had a great time. Prizes were awarded for the best Hawaiian shirt, the winner of a pie eating contest & more.
