Grandparents Day 2It was a day at the Oscars….

On Saturday, September 6, Schervier Pavilion residents, their families, staff and volunteers took the Hollywood “red carpet” path and gathered together under a huge tent to enjoy the annual “Grandparents’ Day” picnic.

And, in the spirit of this year’s Hollywood theme, many of the guests, staff members and residents wore evening gowns and bow ties or came dressed as a famous movie star. But more important, it was an opportunity for generations of families to visit their loved ones and enjoy a traditional end-of- summer celebration.

The staff prepared lots of barbecue favorites and families and residents enjoyed good weather as predicted storms held off until later that evening. There were also games for the children and traditional movie popcorn and candies, free of charge. And thanks to the fundraising efforts of Schervier Pavilion staff, the Jeremy Langdale Band, was also on hand to provide musical entertainment throughout the afternoon. But most of all, residents stated that they enjoyed getting together with their families for a fun afternoon.

Administrator Lisa Brocky welcomed everyone and introduced her staff. Schervier Pavilion Chaplain Father Jamie Bono, IVD, then gave an invocation.

“They were so excited about how well our Grandparents Day was received last year that they immediately began planning for this year’s event,” said Brocky. “It’s a blessing to work with this wonderful staff, which is so dedicated to our residents.
