Building Bridges in the Communities We Serve

January has been a very fruitful month for networking here in the Spirituality Department. This month I have attended several University of Kentucky County Extension meetings from different facets of the organization here in Casey County to build bridges within our community. I am delighted to say that the results have been wildly successful. As a result, I have had the honor of being asked to serve as a Family and Consumer Sciences Council Member as a Signature Representative and representative of the elderly and aging population of Casey County. Photos from last year’s first and highly successful trellis garden sparked great interest and gave us a fair amount of credibility amongst the members of this agricultural county. Already the extension office has blessed us by involving us in the planning phase of forthcoming special projects from the Homemakers Club this spring. They include providing participation and sweets for our Spirituality Department Valentines Tea, making royal robes for our Valentines King and Queen Valentines Party, bringing birdhouses to assemble and paint, and making personalized wheelchair and walker caddies for our residents. A Petting Zoo Day is also in the works when the weather breaks as we link with the Casey County 4-H Department to continue our intergenerational connections. Because of this new networking opportunity, our home has also been invited to participate in collaborative community service efforts with the Community Garden Share Program, Seed Exchange, Community Safety Program, Community CPR Training and Grandparents Day. At each of these events, we have the opportunity to show off our “wares” and give back to the community. Many of these events will be taking place here at our home in Liberty. here at It’s all so exciting! The Revolution continues!
