Holiday Events at Arbor Trace

More than 200 family members and residents filled the dining rooms of Arbor Trace to the brim at the recent Christmas Open-House. Residents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren gathered together to celebrate. The kitchen staff of Arbor Trace provided a buffet dinner, and to make the dinner extra special the staff made all the candies and cookies from scratch. Christmas carols filled the rooms as the Cambridge Middle School Bell Choir, a hammer dulcimer and a tenor sax played throughout the community.  Santa and Mrs. Claus arrived on reindeer, however no one actually saw them fly.  Santa did have to explain to the children that Rudolph couldn’t make this flight, and he is resting comfortably in the North Pole.

On January the 8th Elvis celebrated his 79th birthday with a special concert at Arbor Trace Health and Living Community. Local Richmond resident Ron Muse has been recreating Elvis for the residents of Arbor Trace the last 3 years. Ron said he has always had a love for Elvis and wants to keep the dream of Elvis alive. “I love Elvis, and I love the elderly,” he said. “It’s my way to contribute in some small way to bring a bit of happiness and remembrance to their day.” Mary Nicholson, a resident of Arbor Trace, is a big fan of Elvis and loves the performances. She clapped and squealed with a million watt smile throughout the show. There was singing and foot tapping from everyone. Elvis brought down the house, as he always does.
