|Community helps Regent Park residents get in the Christmas mood|
|Written by Holyoke Enterprise|
Regent Park Nursing Home and Carriage House were buzzing with
activity earlier this week as residents prepared for the Christmas
holiday. Santa and his “elves” stopped by Sunday afternoon, Dec. 19
to present residents with an early gift. Staff, customers and guests of
Bank of Colorado donated gifts to every resident and surprised them
Sunday afternoon. Above, Santa presents Gerald Miller with his gift.
Challengers 4-H Club also stopped by Sunday afternoon to perform a few Christmas carols.
Pictured above, residents listen to the carols while Santa, with the help of his elves and
director Bill Johnson, pass presents out to those watching.
Monday, Dec. 20 students from Kyle Bules’ physical education classes stopped by to perform
some acrobatic dances. Above, Cavin Kramer and Avi Turcios flip Tony Roberts during their
routine. Dani Brandt and Josilyn Lutze opened the performance with a couple of piano numbers
followed by a fast-moving dance by Xander Nelson, Dominic Krogmeier, Alex Yanez and Bradley
Cumming. Lori McWilliams, Megan Parker and Kaitlyn Lenhart also performed a dance. Classes
were scheduled to stop by again Tuesday, Dec. 21 for some Bingo and gingerbread house making.
