INDEPENDENCE DAY

Fourth of July is a big deal at Holiday Villa East. We dress up the outside grounds, and invite all the relatives and have a big, old-fashioned picnic… except all the fixings were prepared by our chef, Andre. Much better than hot dogs and hamburgers. Andre’s the one who prepares all of our delicious meals. Afterwards, we had 5 residents entertain us. Jack played the piano, while Barbara, Arlene, Shirley and Agnes entertained us with song and dance. They’re quite good. Apparently, Arlene used to be a Rockette back in the day. Everyone, even the youngsters enjoyed it. Since we’re only a few blocks from the beach, we all stepped outside and had a great vantage point of the fireworks off the beach. We brought out some chairs for some, sodas and we had a great time watching the fireworks.  Afterwards, we went inside for coffee and cake.
