McPeak's Assisted Living Residents Take Part in Annual Tree Trimming

Residents and Their Families Celebrate the Holiday Season at McPeak’s Annual Party

On December 11, residents at McPeak's Assisted Living celebrated the holidays by trimming the Christmas tree inside the facility's lounge area. As residents took turns decorating the tree, they enjoyed eggnog and cookies, listened to holiday music and sang Christmas carols.

The ornaments featured on the tree were a variety of different ones that residents have made over the years. Angels, McPoodles, and bells were among some of the traditional decorations that were placed on the branches. McPeak's staff saw to it that each resident helped decorate or had a say in the placement of the ornaments on the large tree, which was finished with an ilminating star on top.
