Pueblo, CO, Retirement Communities
Here at Primrose of Pueblo, everyone is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day so we made sure to celebrate with a boom! We had a “lucky social” in the pub for our residents. We served Irish potato candy, a sweet lucky charm treat, green St. Patricks’ punch, and of course we couldn’t leave out the green beer. We also served shamrock shaped sugar cookies from a local bakery that were wonderful!
Life Enrichment team members, Brett and Heidi, decorated the pub with shamrocks and a handmade rainbow with a pot of gold that was filled with gold nuggets. The residents made sure to wear lots of green so no one got pinched. We had our very own Irish Trivia and for each question that was answered right small prizes were given out.
Prior to St. Patrick’s Day we had a Shamrock hunt where several shamrocks were hidden throughout the building. We had the residents turn in their Shamrocks and the person with the most won a prize. Our residents always enjoy a chance to get out of their apartments and socialize but the “Lucky Social” was a special one. One where everyone is Irish and it’s acceptable to wear all green, drink green punch, or beer, and eat delicious treats. We look forward to being Irish again next year on March 17!
