During the month of September for our signature series “Shades of Green”, residents at Gateway Villa Assisted Living recycled paper, cardboard, plastic and aluminum cans. Once a week we made a trip to the local recycling center to empty the bins. Other activities they did for September were recycled arts & crafts projects, collected used coffee grounds to use as fertilizer in our veggie garden and had a “Shades of Green” party.

The Gateway Gardens and Villa's staff and volunteers hosted a rousing rendition of the classic TV show, Hee Haw, for their Resident Referral Campaign. It was a full house; standing room only for the fun-filled musical affair. Laughs were abundant as youngsters popped up out of the corn field to tell jokes. Everyone enjoyed delicious themed snacks and root beers while they listened to some good old country favorites with "Guest Stars" like Johnny and June Cash, Hank Williams Sr, Kitty Wells, Buck Owens, and Patsy Cline. Of course the night wouldn't have been complete without Minnie Pearl and Grandpa Jones's humorous skits. Fun was had by all!!

Residents of Gateway Gardens in Marble Falls, Texas recently visited the local, Sweet Berry Farm. A fun time was had by all! Several residents participated in a hay ride that toured through a scarecrow town consisting of a church, school house, jail house and even a work out gym! It was a hot 90 plus degrees, but they were good sports. The only unhappy participants were the farm goats that the hay ride disturbed while they rested in the shade along the path.
We also picked pumpkins for our Jack-O-Lantern carving contest! We took a picture with an antique farm truck and so much more. Other activities provided were scarecrow stuffing, pumpkin painting, flower picking and a corn field maze. Refreshments were also available that consisted of several different flavors of homemade ice cream.
