Few things bring people together the way that food does. Knowing this, Morning Pointe of Hixson Food Services Director Yolanda Gilbert created “Baking with Yolanda,” a monthly baking club for the residents of the senior living community. Once a month, Ms. Gilbert takes time out of her day to teach the residents to prepare a different dish, and everyone works together to make that dish a reality. She was not required to create this club; she did so simply because she cares for the residents and wants to provide meaningful and entertaining activities for them.

 

This month, personal pan pizzas were on the menu for the residents to prepare. “We had a wide variety of toppings to choose from: mozzarella cheese, parmesan cheese, red, yellow, and green peppers, pepperoni, onions, black olives, mushrooms, bacon and…Italian seasoning,” said Christine Rivers, the Life Enrichment Director at Morning Pointe of Hixson. “From prepping the vegetables to dressing up their personal pan pizza, the residents had a blast!”

Drink Up, Chattanooga

I attended the meeting to discuss the placement of the sewage treatment plant at the Cambridge Center in Ooltewah today.

Now, if a player hits a single, double, triple and homer in that order, that’s “a natural cycle,” and that is kind of fun to ... (click for more)
