Lake City, IA: Spring Family Picnic

Birds are chirping and the sun is shining. Spring is the perfect time of year to get family and friends together, so we did just that! In lieu of our usual family feast in the fall, we hosted an indoor family picnic. The gathering also served as a meet and greet for our new Administrator, Randy Sparks. Everyone had the opportunity to visit with our newest team member at the picnic. On Sunday, April 29th, friends and family poured into our humble abode around 11:30 am. While visitors waited in line for their buffet styled lunch, Randy was able to mingle with family members. He enjoyed listening to everyone’s unique background and story. The picnic themed meal consisted of BBQ pulled pork, cheesy potatoes, baked beans, coleslaw and ice cream for dessert. The tables were decorated with beautiful yellow daisies and baby’s breath arranged in milk jar vases. Splashes of bright blue snuck into the decorating theme with blue bows tied on the vases and blue napkins. Without everyone working together, it would be impossible to throw such a fun, successful event.  A special thanks to the Leadership Team for being so accommodating and the Culinary Team for preparing an exceptional meal for everyone to enjoy! Randy commented, “I would like to once again say thank you to everyone in attendance, as I enjoyed the opportunity to meet you personally. You are a proud community and I am honored to be the new administrator here at Shady Oaks. I look forward to many years of service.”
