Every day, we at Spectrum strive to help you live life to the fullest by creating exciting, new experiences for you to enjoy and look back on. Following all of the compelling events and activities that we brought to you last month, we are delighted to introduce even more fun and creative ways for you to enrich your lives in February. With Valentine’s Day and other special events right around the corner, we encourage you to join us and connect with one another for the myriad of entertaining activities and programs that we have planned for you. Together, we will celebrate many things from our past while creating all-new memories, friendships, and accomplishments for our future. In addition to recognizing the present “month of love”, we will explore another monumental time in our rich history. We are most excited to bring you our main event, Art Through the Ages, which will feature intergenerational art pieces from within your own community, as well as pieces by local artists and artisans who will have their unique works on display. Each passing decade brings remarkable events and innovations that have shaped and molded our present and our future. This month, let us reflect together on another very unique time of our lives...

February 2014

The Decade of Resolution: 1910-1919 Many will remember this decade as a turning point in history: The United States bravely entered the First World War (1914-1919). Despite the feeling of uncertainty that the world experienced during that time, many exciting new innovations were still developing. Einstein published his Theory of Relativity, ballroom dancing and silent films became ever more popular, and inventions like the Pop-Up Toaster were introduced, adding efficiency to our daily lives. Perhaps one of the most talked-about news stories of our lifetime occurred: The famed Titanic passenger ocean liner was conceived and tragically destroyed after colliding with an iceberg in the North Atlantic Ocean in 1912. During this time of our lives, so many extraordinary events occurred. Let us look back and ponder the incredible happenings of this time. What events or stories do you remember the most? How have these events and innovations shaped your life and our country over time? We look forward to seeing you at each of our planned events and activities – be sure to keep your eye out for more details on our main event: Art Through the Ages!

Winter is upon us. Hopefully things will settle down with all this snow. We have started a few new programs. Please come join in the fun. We will put out a new survey soon to find out what you would like to be doing with the activity department. Here is a winter poem for you: “Winter”

Director’s Corner

Welcome New Residents Eleanor P. Beverly K. Cathy E. Art M. Dolores M. Jim P. Albina D. Shirley C.

The days are short The sun a spark Hung thin between The dark and dark. Fat snowy footsteps Track the floor And parkas pile up Near the door. The river is a frozen place Held still beneath The trees’ black lace The sky is low. The wind is gray. The radiator Purrs all day.

I had a great time in Colorado for work and a chance to visit with my Colorado family. Those grandchildren really grow fast! We are looking forward to our second annual art show this month where you might even see some artwork from our team members

(me included but promise not to laugh). If you haven’t met Debbie, our newest member of the activities department, please stop by and introduce yourself. She is a welcome addition to our Team.

We will have a cooking show at the end of the month the theme will be apples, apples and apples. You won’t want to miss this.
