Christmas Shoeboxes!

Making a difference in the lives of children in South America!  Again this year we had a blast purchasing items and packaging up shoebox gifts to go to children in need. Residents were able to choose the gender and age range and then items were packaged with tender care. Christmas cards and a personal note were included in each box! This year 25 children will receive  lovely Christmas gifts from the folks here at the Waterford!

The Waterford Family and Friends Christmas Party

Wow! What a magical day this was! On December 6th, we opened our doors for our Annual Waterford Christmas, Family and Friends open house! This year we had over 350 guests come and mix, mingle and jingle — all the way! Food and drink was plentiful, music by Tony Frazao was lovely and of course Santa and Mrs. Clause came for a visit too! We also collected lots of great loot for our annual Christmas hamper drive!  Thank you to all who gave!

Christmas Around The World

A December Waterford tradition is back! Every year in the month of December, our program coordinator Mari, takes us on an exciting virtual trip.

Every week before Christmas we “travel” to another country and experience Christmas their way! We see pictures and hear all about their Christmas traditions and customs and we also taste some of the foods that they would serve during the holidays.

Thursday Dec. 3rd, we visit Belgium, Friday Dec. 11th, we visit Ireland, Thursday Dec. 17th, we visit the Philippines and finally on Wednesday Dec. 23rd we visit Costa Rica.  Come on out and join us at 3:00 in the front foyer on these dates!
