Happy Last Monday of September!
Can you believe next week is October already? It is starting to feel like it, that’s for sure. Plus, I was driving around this weekend and noticed that there’s some color popping already! I can’t wait for the hay rides, corn mazes, haunted houses, and pumpkin carving next month! But this also means I need to figure out Jacob’s Halloween costume. He wants to be a very obscure character from a very obscure video game, so wish me luck. I’m going to need it!
I’ve got a lot for you this morning. First, I want to give a shout out to some very hard workers that have been at Generations the last couple of weeks. Joe Miller, his son Corbin DreesWasmer, and Rory Neuhaus from Neuhaus Outdoor Service finished the pathway through the garden and laid the bricks we got in earlier this year. Corbin especially was so proud of the hard work he put in and how it turned out. If you’re out on the patio, take a walk across the bridge and check it out. It turned out great and we are so appreciative. Thank you so much, Joe, Corbin, and Rory!
I also have a couple of announcements for you. First, we finally scheduled a Flu Shot Clinic! Aurora Pharmacy will be doing it again this year. They will be at Generations on Monday, October 9th from 9am until 1pm. As in the past, it will be first come, first served and when they’re out of shots, they’ll be done for the day. I apologize we could only get one date on the books this year, but one is better than none!
My second announcement is that, starting next week, the ADRC’s My Way Café will be 5 days a week! This is going to make scheduling for meal goers so much easier. Plus, Pic A Deli and the ADRC will be able to serve so many more people now! We’re very excited to see this program back in full swing!
Before getting into upcoming events, there is one more topic I want to touch on: signing up for activities. If you plan to come to Generations for an activity, please email, call, or stop in the office to sign up, even if the flyer doesn’t specifically say to. I know it’s a pain, and we are working on ways to make this easier, I promise. There will be a little write up in the October newsletter explaining this more in depth so please read through that when you get it. Of course, if you have any questions, you can always stop in or send me a message.
OK, here’s what we have coming up for the end of September and the beginning of October…

We will be inviting the kids in the Jungle Cubs classroom down for lunch! Feel free to visit with the kids, grab a bite to eat, and just hang out. Organized activities are great, but these unscripted opportunities can be just as important. We hope you consider joining us and the kiddos for lunch.

Please contact Emily if you have any questions.
Friday, October 6th, 1:30pm – Movie Matinee: Come Out Fighting (2023) Based on true events, Come Out Fighting is set during WWII as the American Army have raced their way through the countryside on the border of France, entering Nazi Germany. Hitler, desperate to turn the tide, has deployed his secret weapon: an M-262 fighter jet. Lt. Frank Ross encounters this weapon, and an intense aerial battle ensues. Ross, forced to eject from his plane, lands behind enemy lines. If you would like to join, please call, email, or stop in. Should be a good one!
Last note time!
Jim Marshall from Marshall Sign reached out to us with a unique request that I think someone reading this might be interested in. Instead of trying to summarize his request, I’m just going to copy what he sent:
“CAN YOU SEW?! Marshall Sign is looking for a PART TIME Sewing Machine Operator for our Awning Fabrication Area in Glenbeulah. Individual would be responsible for sewing hems incanvas.
