Lake City, IA: Planting New Life

On Friday, September 7, 2018, residents and team members of Shady Oaks Care Center gathered at the back walking trail of the facility for the planting of an oak tree. This is not just any oak tree though! The tree was dedicated to our 50th Anniversary and we’re all excited to watch it grow with Shady Oaks! The air was a bit chilly but residents happily snuggled in blankets and jackets while surrounding the new sapling. After a short reading from Brittany Drew, everyone gathered for a group photograph and headed inside for a yummy Casey’s doughnut.  We would like to send a sincere thank you to Nick Gorden and Gorden’s Tree Service for their generous donation of the Red Oak Tree, which will provide beautiful foliage and memories for the next 50 years!
