A Beautiful Day for a BBQ
4th Annual Family Reunion
This year approximately 120 people, consisting of families who have lost loved ones and Silverado associates, gathered together at Southwell Park in Old Town Spring, Texas for food, fellowship, and fun activities.
The day was perfect. There were many reunions and some bitter sweet memories expressed, but there was joy on all faces. There were basketball shootouts, horse petting, and a great playground for the kids.
Sabra Egbert, Silverado Volunteer Manager, along with her husband, Ken and Jerry Evenson grilled hamburgers for all! Admissions RN, John Taglienti, played guitar and Spiritual Care Counselor, Greg Brown, lead the inspiration.
With this year's theme, "Time in a Bottle", in mind, we spent our second year making sand creations in memory of loved ones. While everyone was working on their creations, several butterflies landed on people's shoulders. Have you ever heard the saying "butterflies are the heaven sent kisses from an angel"?
As you can imagine, the butterflies joining us was well received, creating meaningful memories of the day for many!
