Aloha Day Club members kicked off the holiday spirit by decorating their own gingerbread man and woman! They recalled what happened when the gingerbread man thought no one could catch him! The ending was delicious whether you were a fox or a club member! Thanks to Cindy Stormark and Pam Roberds for their dedication as program volunteers! A delicious lunch was provided by Stepping Into the Bible volunteers Laura Cochenour and Anne Bowen. Shell pasta casserole, Anne’s famous deviled-eggs and her caramel cake…Yum!

We at Aloha are grateful for all the Veterans that have served.
JR showed up at our West Cobb Aloha Day Club donning his Veteran’s Day vest. He served in the Army! There are quite a few club members who were in the military, and we get to hear their rich stories of being stationed in different areas of the world. Again, we thank you!

A Denver Art Gallery Helps Bring Out Seniors’ Artistic Side
Armed with water-based spray paint, the seniors at the Johnson adult day-program are defying stereotypes — using art to help battle memory loss.
Our fall intern Thomas Lusk, a Wheeler High School student, has been a great help in many facets of Aloha. He has been immersed by taking our “ASiST” Aging Simulation Sensitivity Training, Dementia 24/7 Simulation Training, and our Aloha Day Club (ADC) Volunteer Training and has gained a better understanding of the aging population and their needs. He’s worked with the club members in the ADC program, logged in necessary data entry, and has been very useful in figuring out statistics which will be beneficial when applying for grants. These are just a few areas of how our intern supports Aloha to Aging. Many thanks, Thomas, for being a valued member of our team!
