4th OF JULY
We will be celebrating America’s independence by looking back at the colonial days. We have a couple of days planned for artifacts of that era, and another day will be a movie tribute to the people who fought for America’s independence.
On the first Friday of July we will go to the Green Tomato Restaurant in Grainger County. It is one of the Residents favorite places to go! The food is just good ol’ fashioned home cookin’.
We are going to have an all-you-can-eat watermelon feast for the residents! The watermelon season is in full swing in July. Picking the best watermelons can be difficult for some, so here are some tips. Thump the watermelon, it needs to sound firm. Make sure the skin on the outside of the watermelon has a good color. If it looks faded, it’s usually not ripened well. It needs good deep color.
SMOKY MTN. VARIETY SHOW
These people put on the best show! They sing a little bit of everything and they make you laugh during their performance. When the music starts, then the fun begins. This event will be on the 8th of July at 1:30 pm.
Lunch Time Music Show
We have a new entertainer who will put on a music show while the residents enjoy their food. He will be singing the house down with some of those old favorites like The Tennessee Waltz, Rocky Top, and more. This event is every 2nd and 4th Thursday of every month.
THEME MEAL OF THE MONTH
July’s meal is farm-fresh foods themed. We will have out the cows, the barn, and the hay for this spectacular event. We will be having a lot of howdys as people come out on the farm for those farm-fresh fixin’s. This event will be on the third Wednesday at lunchtime. Listen for that dinner bell!
