Council Bluffs Retirement Living
Can you hear the beautiful, joyful, happy singing voices coming from Primrose Retirement Community in Council Bluffs, Iowa? Listen closely and you can hear some favorite classics like ‘Bye, Bye Blackbird,’ ‘In My Merry Oldsmobile,’ ‘Ain’t She Sweet,’ and ‘Take Me Out to the Ball Game’!

Primrose has already attracted more than thirty tenants to our twice monthly SING A LONG. With the accompaniment of Mary Lou, a talented tenant, these singing sessions are a fabulous hit! We have more than twenty songs in our repertoire and we will soon be adding more.

Another new activity here is COOKIES AND COLLECTIONS. In March, tenant Jean M. showcased her unbelievable collection of her very own needlepoint work. What a sight to see! This art work was so delicately intertwined which took her hours upon hours for each piece. The tenants were excited to see the collection and were also treated to cookies.

Primrose of Council Bluffs also hosted The Lewis Central Eighth Grade TAG, (Talented and Gifted) group to present their World War II presentations. These were done on Power Point and presented in our theatre.

The group talked about rationing, weapons, diseases, the romance of Adolf Hitler with Eva Braun and a sample of popular music from the time period along with singing. Primrose and the students were featured two days later in the local Council Bluffs Daily Nonpareil newspaper.

Spring has sprung and with the new life of grass, flowers and the buds on the trees, so we breathe new life into our activities. Coming in May we look forward to a Mother’s Day Tea, new entertainment, and a Primrose Progressive Supper Club. Our walking club and gardening club are anxious to get outside to enjoy the many amenities of Spring.

We wish everyone here at Primrose and all of you out there reading this blog, a very blessed and rejuvenating season.
