"May All Who Enter Our Doors Find Peace, Security And Respect"
                       August 2018

"But just now it is summer again and I am watching the lilies bow to each other, then slide on the wind and the tug of desire, close, close to one another, Soon now, I'll turn and start for home. And who knows, maybe I'll be singing." Mary Oliver

Hello August!

Although summer is starting to come to an end, the fun doesn't have to! We have lots of summer fun left for August.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but who doesn't feel good after a brand new haircut?! We would like to welcome a new Beautician, Heather Yates, who has 20 years experience cutting hair and 18 years experience in facilities around the Salem Area. She does cuts, perms, color, as well as men's haircuts and beard care. In August she will be at our salon Tuesday the 14th and Tuesday the 28th starting at 10am. Appointments can be made at the front desk. Go ahead, treat yourself!

August Highlights

Oregon has a rich history, from the Oregon trail to modern day Cowboys and Cowgirls. Here at the park we will celebrate our history in August. August 13-17th is all "Western" themed, and we will be cookin' up Cowboy Caviar (No fish in this caviar) on August 16th. 

Don't miss The Johnny Cash Guy here playing all the old country favorites on August 14th at 2pm! Tuesday we will don our Country Best, so dig out your cowboy hats and boots. 
We will serve Root Beer Floats on August 15th and close out our week with special themed Bingo bucks!

The fun doesn't end there:

Come spend your Bingo Bucks at our store on August 20th, and we are crafting on August 21st.  

Get ready for our trip to the State Fair on August 28th! 

These are just a few of our highlights, check out our calendar for all the month's special events and programming. 

As always, when one door closes another door opens! 
We'd like to thank our staff who are moving on for their time with us. Angel Everett CNA last day is July 31st
Nicole Moade-Rodriguez NA last day is August 4th. We wish them the best of luck and they are always welcome back here at The Park.

We'd also like to welcome Jennifer Timmins, a new full time eve shift nurse that started in July. She comes to us with lots of experience in Long Term Care.

In the kitchen we want to welcome Devon Bunselmeyer, a PM dish aide started on July 12th. Please welcome them to the Sherwood Park family!

You are always welcome here!
