Lake City, IA: Spring Fling

When team members signed up for a game titled “Spring Fling” they truly had no idea what they were in for! Residents gathered in the dining room ready to be entertained as team members got ready to compete. Two piles of clothing (eighteen pieces in each) were at the starting line. Chairs were spaced down the length of the dining room as checkpoints for our “Spring Fling” racers. Team members went head to head flinging clothing onto their bodies any way they could. The object of the game was to get all the garments on, run to a chair for a quick sit before they ran to the next chair and back to their original post. They then had to strip the extra clothing and throw their hands in the air to be declared the winner. A million laughs later, we had our “Spring Fling Champion”. Tracey Toms, ADON, was happy to take home bragging rights as our big winner and commented, “I had so much fun and I know the resident’s had a good laugh too. Creating moments of joy is what we are here for!”

Excellent Teams:  We will select and develop team members who radiate warmth, compassion and respect while skillfully performing their duties.
