April 2018
April is going to be an exciting and busy month at Madison Heights and we look forward to seeing you for some of the fun!

We are hosting our Spring Luau on April 24 and hope that you can join us as we celebrate the spring with our residents. More information on this fun family event is listed below under the Mark Your Calendar section.

April 15-21 is Volunteer Appreciation Week and we will be certain to make sure our volunteers know how much they are appreciated! Our residents love meeting new people and telling their stories to new friends. This is one of the many reasons that we are so thankful for our faithful volunteers! I f you are interested in volunteering at Madison Heights or know someone who would enjoy volunteering please contact Kelly at 706-364-8710 or Kelly@madisonheightsevans.com.

Lastly, we have numerous outings on the calendar for the month including: Grease at Regal Cinema, Arsty Me, Tranquility Stables, Morris Museum of Art & a lunch outing. Our residents enjoy seeing the town and reliving memories of places they have lived or visited in the past while we are out.

I look forward to sharing photos from these fun events with you in next month's newsletter and on our Facebook page which you can connect with on the below link in the Connect with Us section. Hope to see you soon!
