September may be the beginning of fall, but at Heritage Woods of Huntley, residents are still in spring-mode.

Here are some of the highlights from another busy month at our community:

  • Residents always enjoy when we have entertainment for them to enjoy, especially when they have an opportunity to watch children show off their talents. Recently, we had 10 students from a music school perform during a piano recital.
  • Magic was in the air when a magician came to perform for us by making flowers and animals out of balloons, pulling rabbits out of hats and doing card tricks. Thankfully, none of our residents disappeared!
  • Healthpro, our local therapy service, did a presentation on Brain Power and how to to keep our brains active by participating in activities offered at our community.
  • The life of Greta Gable, an icon of films from the 1920s, was presented by Carol Bradley telling us about everything from her rise to fame to her love life.
  • Spring was definitely in the air when we had our Petting Zoo. The goats, sheep, chicken, ducks and calf were all happy to see us and be fed.
  • Besides the extra entertainment we have this month, some of our regular activities – bingo, word games, sightseeing trips and Jeopardy – are always enjoyable.
