The weekly church services were provided by Kitch Shatzer representing United Presbyterian Church.

The sermon was titled ?Naming the Tempest.? Scripture from Mark 4:35-41. Mary Atwood shared her special talents on the piano.

The Longest Day is all about love. Love for all those affected by Alzheimer?s disease.

On the summer solstice, Thursday, June 21 Halcyon House encouraged team members and residents to keep the Nusteps moving all day long and to wear purple!

The color purple was prominent, as households were decorated with beautiful purple flower arrangements and staff and residents wore purple.

In the afternoon the household residents were treated to powdered sugar donuts and milk served on purple plates. It was a fun treat for everyone!
