Well, its been quite some time since there’s been a Quixote Village post. It was a very busy summer, with gardens to grow and harvest, weeds to pull, a firewood shelter
to build (thanks, Scott!), and on and on. Hopefully things will slow a bit as we move into the fall. The first rains will fill the ponds again (I know ducks and plovers are out there, just waiting) and it will be time to enjoy indoor activities once again.
We have welcomed some new residents to the Village and expect a few more in the days to come. And most fortunately, after Julie retired from the position we were able to hire Alicia Crumpton to be our new Resident Advocate. She has fit right in and brings a wealth of experience and new ideas to the Village.
For some time now, residents and staff have been joining their friends from Drexel House for weekly walk-jog-run workouts under the guidance of volunteer Anne Larsen. Last weekend some brought along their kids to participate in the Bright Futures Fun Run, a “5k run, walk, glide, dance through Olympia” (http://www.brighterfuturesrun.com/). A great time had by all. More soon!
