Super Bowl XLIX Party

Don’t miss our 15th Annual Super Bowl party this Sunday, February 1st, at 5 pm. Join your fellow residents and watch the Seattle Seahawks take on the New England Patriots on the big screen TV on the 3rd floor. We’ll be providing pizza and pop. Hope you can make it!!

Tax Return Help

AARP will again be doing free income tax preparation for seniors at Aurora Senior Services on North Lake St. We have reserved 5 time slots each for Tuesday, March 3rd at 9:30 am and Tuesday, March 10th at 9:00 am. Please sign up at the Front Desk to reserve a spot. Transportation will be provided for these times. We do need to know by Tuesday, Feb. 24th if you’re interested, so we can release any unused spots to others.

Organ Concert at Aurora University

David Shrader returns to Aurora University for an exhilarating concert featuring the Crimi Auditorium pipe organ on Thursday, Feb. 12th at noon. We’ll be leaving here at 11:30 am, so you may want to grab a light bite to eat in your room beforehand. If there’s enough interest, we may grab lunch out before or after the concert. See Kathy for details, and be sure to sign up.

Clergy Appreciation Luncheon

We’ll be hosting a clergy appreciation luncheon to give recognition and thanks for all the support that the local ministries provide to our community. The lunch will be Wednesday, February 18th at 11:30 am in the Dining Room. While this will be a normal lunch seating, we will be giving special recognition to our honored guests. Please see Amanda for more details or if you’d like to invite a clergy person from your church.

Ever Wonder About the Hindu Temple in Aurora?

Now all your questions will be answered. We’re going to the temple located at Sullivan and Randall Roads on Tuesday, Feb. 24th at 9:30 am. There will be a tour (about an hour or so) along with some history of the temple. There will be some walking to do also. Should be quite interesting. Be sure to sign up.

Hearing Presentation

We’ll be having an audiologist here for a presentation that will cover hearing health & preventive care on Friday, February 27th at 1:30 pm in the Dining Room. After the presentation they will be conducting quick 5 minute hearing screenings for anyone who’s interested (they can also clean hearing aids!). They’ll also have information on how to get free caption phones and Otoscopic exams (looking inside the ear). They also want families to get involved, so they can find out what their love one’s may be dealing with and how it can make them depressed or withdrawn. If someone is struggling with hearing loss it is important for family to know how to communicate with them. Sounds interesting. Hope to see you there.
