Celebrating National Popcorn Day

January 19th was National Popcorn Day and we took a few of our wonderful residents to the Cinemark Theater to hand out small bags of popcorn that we had purchased there. The residents truly enjoyed themselves and were blessed and thankful that they could get out and take part in the afternoon. This was the first time ever for the residents being in our new theater. Cinemark has been in Lancaster for a few years now. They were happy by making someone else’s day – not just by giving the customers a free bag of popcorn, but simply saying “Hello, how are you today?”.

A lot of the customers enjoyed the residents talking to them. We asked resident Tera Ekman what she enjoyed the most and she replied “I enjoyed being with the group and having fun. Just because I’m 90 doesn’t mean I don’t like to have fun.” The group ended the outing with lunch in the food court at the mall. While we were ordering our food, the fellow taking our order said to us “Hey I remember you, you gave me a free doughnut at Tim Horton’s last month.” That made all of us feel good, knowing that some stranger remembered what we did for them. Just a small reminder that little things do go a long way.
