Whenever summer begins and we speak of June, the thought of weddings comes immediately to mind. Holy Family Residence hosted its own matrimonial celebration with a large and wonderful display that took everyone down memory lane. Residents and staff members searched through their treasure boxes to find a wedding or a milestone anniversary picture to share with everyone in the home. The result was an array of beautiful brides in gorgeous gowns and handsome young grooms flanked by various bedecked members of the wedding parties. Throughout the month, the display elicited many positive comments from not only the Residents but the curious visitors who stopped to admire the collection of photographs.
The month’s event culminated on June 23 with a very special Eucharistic Celebration in observance of the 40th wedding anniversary of Association Jeanne Jugan members, Mary and Will Roberts. Mary and Will, wearing caps denoting “bride and groom” respectively, invited everyone to join them in the festively decorated auditorium for pastel colored cupcakes, punch and a DVD viewing of memorable family occasions. We all took pleasure in sharing the day with our AJJ couple and agreed that June definitely took us all on a joy ride back in time.
