What do a kick line, a “Poet”, and chicken bites have in common? Give up? The answer is a pre-Super Bowl party at Holy Family Residence. Now, I know that sounds like an odd mix of activity, occupation, and objects, but as you read on you will see why it was the perfect formula for a Friday afternoon of good food and good times.
Kicking off this afternoon of football-themed fun, our kitchen staff treated our Residents and employees to a delicious buffet lunch of traditional Super Bowl party fare (including chicken bites!) as well as well-balanced and nutritious options. After dining at tables decorated in New England Patriot and Seattle Seahawk team colors, well-known Northeastern Pennsylvania entertainer Frankie Gervasi of the singing group “The Poets,” provided us with a wonderfully entertaining afternoon of singing and dancing. Whether he was leading the Macarena line dance or performing the top hits of the ’50s and the ’60s, Frankie sure got the party started! He even got many of our Residents and employees to participate in a Rockettes style kick line as he belted out Frank Sinatra’s “New York, New York.”
As you can imagine, we were sorry to see the afternoon of fun come to an end, but we know we can count on Frankie to visit us again and bring back those big smiles to our Residents’ faces.
Until Next Time,
P.S. Despite the many prayers of Washington native, Sister Rachael, the Seahawks lost to the Patriots 28-24. If you ask me, I think God wanted the Patriots to win since they donated tickets to our home to use in our “Weekend in New England” raffle last fall. (Just kidding! We know the good Lord sees us all as winners!)
