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!

Thoughts from the Director of Fun

February Main Event

Winter is a great time to relax, meditate or read a book in our beautiful Garden Room. The waterfall is soothing as you enjoy the beauty of the plants. It is also time to dabble, draw or color in the Art Room. There are always several projects there for you to work on and keep or enter in our Art Show this month. February can be cold and dreary, but keeping active and

Our 2nd Annual Art Show will be on Thursday, February 20, from 6:30 – 8:00. The evening will consist of wine, appetizers, music and a variety of art. We are still looking for artists and art work to display. If you are interested in participating, please

having fun will keep us warm inside. Worry is like a rocking chair, it will give you something to do, but it won’t get you anywhere. Another important fact to remember is that stressed spelled backwards is desserts. So, let’s eat more chocolate and have more fun so we don’t worry or get stressed. We will especially enjoy all the chocolate at the Valentine’s Party this month.

Our goal for February is to chase away those “winter blues” by keeping a lot of activities going and many of them could include
