Valentine’s Day Celebration
West African Drummer/dancer presentation
We had a couple special events this month to entertain us during the cold snowy months here in Ohio.
We had an African Safari party. Residents came to the party clad in their leopard print scarves and clothing. We had a West African cooking demonstration with a tasting after the demonstration. We played African safari animal trivia and learned some cool animal facts. Residents then were entertained by Sogbety Diomande who is a native West African drummer and dancer. He changed into different outfits and brought many different drums and explained about each one of them and gave a demonstration on how to play them. Residents also got to participate by playing the drums and learning a short African dance that we got some volunteers to join in on. This event was a great success and something different at Primrose that day.
We also had a Valentine’s Day celebration. We had a chocolate theme party with chocolate martinis and chocolate mocha punch served in the pub along with various different chocolate desserts hand made by Marilyn and Tanya made some goodies too. Residents were entertained by a barbershop quartet Bravada during this event.
