Do you like museums? Our first activity of the month is an outing. On August 2nd, we are headed to the History Museum at the Arvada Center for the Arts. This is a free museum with minimal walking.

On the 5th we’ll return to one of our favorite’s, the “Black Eyed Pea,” a very popular restaurant serving home-style southern cuisine. Take a journey into the past at the “Old Wagon Antique Store.” Experience excellent opportunities for browsing and reminiscing on August 11th.

We’ll attempt to win back our losses from July when we visit the Black Hawk Casinos again on the 13th. We depart at 9:30am and be back home around 3:30pm.

August 13th is also “International Left-Handed Day”. Gloria will challenge you with left-handed facts and trivia, famous left-handers, writing and coloring left-handed, pouring and measuring liquids or cutting with a pair of scissors. See just how right brained you are.

On the 18th we are welcoming our newest residents with a “Welcome New Resident” social. All residents are invited to attend. We’ll learn a little about each other as we share our stories. This is a great opportunity to meet and make new friends. Root beer floats will be served.

We are going to the Anythink Library again on the 19th and we really enjoying this outing!

Our August picnic is on the 26th at the Squires Park in Westminster. Gloria will barbecue up some burgers and dogs and who knows, we might even take a little stroll around the park after our bellies are full.
