Times of Our Lives

Decade of Family: 1950-1959 By Lindsey Glenn

As we cruise into June, the warm days just get a little sweeter, don’t they? This month, as we continue to celebrate the Times of Our Lives, we are so excited to delight you with a myriad of nostalgic and fun activities surrounding the Nifty 1950s. So much learning, team-building, brainstorming, and fun was had by all!

The Fun Team poses for a great group photo!

We had a 1950s Day! Everyone dressed up, ate at a vintage diner, and went bowling together.

Lincoln Meadows won for best flavor - and it was DELICIOUS! Congrats to a great team!

The teams also went on a scavenger hunt through the city. Congrats to our group of winners!

Villas of Shelby won best presentation for their great use of Spectrum’s Core Values!

Together, we created a masterpiece, just like we try to do with our jobs every day!

We brought Fun and Food together for a Guacamole competition. Our judges really had their mouths full!

The Decade of Family: 1950-1959 It seems more than appropriate that this would be the decade focused on family. The USA was still recovering from World War II. Brave servicemen had come home to their wives with a new lease on life and the strong desire to start or grow a family. Americans were now able to purchase items that were not available during the war which brought on a wave of new consumerism, and allowed for corporate expansion and many new job opportunities. Men who were away at war were now able to re-enter the work force, and thousands of women across the country were able to return to the home to nurture their growing families. Despite the new conflicts developing across the globe with Korea and the USSR, things were looking up for American culture and innovation. Television continued on its path to extreme popularity as most households now had a television in the family room, and the world had access to news and entertainment like never before. Becoming a prominent part of daily life, families would gather around the set to tunein for popular shows like American Bandstand and Davy Crockett. Here, they would eat meals, play board games, and spend quality time

together. Color television also made its debut during this time. Television began to mold America. Owning a car was also the norm, and driving for leisure became even more popular. Road trips to theme parks like the new Disneyland became a must-do activity among families. For many, cruising the new highway systems just for the fun of it became the trend. Business owners recognized the new fad and roadways became spattered with social stops like drive-in movies, diners, and burger joints to cater to the growing crowd of every day travelers. Teenagers capitalized on the exciting new trend the most, and separated themselves from the older generation with their own unique fashion sense, musical tastes, and dance styles. Poodle skirts, saddle shoes, pony tails, and blue jeans swept the nation’s young generation. Rock and Roll music was introduced to the population when artists like Elvis Presley and Buddy Holly entered the scene, breaking the mold and paving the way for modern music. Fashion and entertainment had more attitude than ever. This was the Nifty Fifties, and is one of the most fun and memorable eras of our lifetime. Come and cruise with us this month as we celebrate the 1950s with activities and events dedicated to the fashions and fads of the times, including our monthly main event, Cruisin’ Route 66!

Thoughts from the Director of Fun

Monthly Main Events Overview

Time flies when you are having FUN! The summer months are upon us. There is something wonderful about the sun shining and being outdoors. I love the longer evenings and watching the sunset, bike rides, flying a kite, going to the beach, walking my dog, taking a trip to Cedar Point, working in my garden - all of these things make this time of year so special for me. I want to make this a very special summer for you as well! We will

In the month of June we will be focusing on the 1950’s. On Saturday June 21, 2014 we will be having a Cruising Route 66 Party! We have loads of fun planned for the day, so be there or be square! Leading up to our Route 66 Party we are going to have a Spirit Week. We will have different theme days.

do a few country rides, visit the ice cream store, a cook out, a picnic in the park, Senior Day at the Zoo. I would love to hear how summer was special for you in the past and perhaps get some of your ideas for FUN! Please write down your ideas and share them so we can plan and make them happen together.

Tonya Wilson Director of Fun

Executive Director’s Corner The month of May ended with a very successful food drive for the Gleaner’s Food Bank. A heartfelt “Thank You” goes out to each and every one that donated items to such a worthy organization. We welcome June and the wonderful warm weather that comes along with it. June is the month with the longest daylight hours of the year in the Northern Hemisphere so may sure to take advantage of all the sunlight and all the activities offered in our community. It is wonderful to see so many residents and family members referring their friends and relatives to the Villas. We have given away many gift cards over the months and hope to continue to do so. Also, please

remember if your referral moves into the Villas you will receive a $1000 off your rent. If you need additional details regarding our referral program please ask any of our Department Heads which include Lynette, Lisa, Shelley, Tonya, Gerry, Andrea, Alek or I. June also gives us the opportunity to celebrate the men who raised us, loved us and taught us important lessons that we will remember the rest of our lives. We wish you a very Happy Father’s Day!
