News & Happenings
There is a lot to see and do at Marian Hall Home.
Here are some recent highlights from around our personal care community:
2018 MEMORIAL SERVICE
We welcomed family and friends of Marian Hall for our 2018 Memorial Service on November 7, honoring 26 loved ones who passed over the last year. A family member of each of the departed carried a ceremonial candle in their memory. Afterwards, participants stayed for a reception to share refreshments and their common experience of loss. We wish each family peace and hope and are grateful for their attendance.
THE GOOD OLD DAYS
Marian Hall Home hosted a unique Memory Party in October 2017, led by activities directors Karen Vevers and Kristin Hubert. Residents brought photo albums, trinkets and souvenirs to share fond memories of school, family and vacations. Partygoers enjoyed reminiscing about household deliveries of ice and coal, the former prices of milk and bread, walking to school in all kinds of weather, and the role of women during World War II. Due to the popularity of the event, we now host regular "reminiscing sessions" for our residents, each with a different topic.
Our residents had a front-row seat as The Speeze-Acts entertained during our Big Birthday Party in October. Michael and Chris Speezak, a fun-loving senior couple, brought their rip-roaring brand of acrobatics to the Mount Assisi Dining Room. Afterwards, the performers expressed their gratitude to God for their ability to bring smiles everywhere they perform. They also greeted each resident individually. Our monthly birthday parties usually feature a special musical guest to entertain our residents.

Marian Hall set a delightful summer scene in August, when it hosted a picnic for residents, sisters and staff. Attendees enjoyed music, fun and food, including a traditional summer spread of hot dogs, hamburgers, corn on the cob, baked beans and potato salad all served atop fun tablecloths. Everyone enjoyed clapping and singing along with the musical stylings of Cara Rozgonyi on flute and piano.
