July Events Continue Fun Summer Senior Lifestyle

Jul 3, 2014 1:25:00 PM

july senior living eventsOur residents know how to get the most out of senior life—evening when the weather heats up. In addition to our regular trips to the Opera—and isn’t this season already turning out some great performances? — we’ve got plenty of action packed into July.

Just take a look at some of the highlights from our social calendar this month!

Friday, July 4

8:00 PM: Fourth of July Celebration

We will depart for the Fireworks Show in Blue Ash.  We will pack snacks, drinks and chairs to watch the Fireworks Show that begins at 9:00 pm in a spot reserved just for us.

Sunday, July 6

3:30 PM: Musical Guest

Pianist and Vocalist Mike Pendell will be in the Chapel to provide entertainment this afternoon with songs we all know and love.

Tuesday, July 8

5:00 PM: Dinner Out

Marjorie P. Lee is dining out at 200 Brix—Cincinnati’s first (some say only) wine bar and restaurant! Located in the heart of Milford, not 10 miles away from our community, chef Paul Barraco will be serving up the perfect modern American favorites (with a Mediterranean twist!) for every wine! 

Thursday, July 10

2:00 PM: Lifelong Learning Opportunity

We’re headed to the American Indian Education Center, located in the Newtown Municipal Center, this afternoon where we’ll have the opportunity to learn about the rich pre-Colombian history of the Little Miami River Valley! After exploring the center we’ll stop by the Dairy Corner to get some ice cream before heading home.

Friday, July 11

5:30 PM: Celebrate!

The ERH community, of which Marjorie P. Lee is a part, takes pride in our highly acclaimed Affordable Living Communities. Currently there are 13 communities operating in this region.  ERH’s faith-based values call us to serve the low income and elderly population.  We can think of no more honorable and essential ministry than to serve those who have difficulty making ends meet, by providing safe and comfortable housing—and our residents feel the same.

Marjorie P. Lee will be joining our sister community and friends of ERH for the Celebrate! Safe, Comfortable, Community Living event at St. Paul Village as a part of our Good Samaritan Mission. The event, the proceeds of which go toward ERH’s affordable living communities, is a casual affair with food catered by BBQ Revue, and a variety of craft beers and wine.  There will be music by the Comet Bluegrass All-Stars and much more.

Wednesday, July 16

11:30 AM: Picnic in the Park

It’s prime picnicking season here in Cincinnati, and our community is taking advantage of it with lunch at Tower Park in Fort Thomas, Kentucky.  There will be plenty of hotdogs and hamburgers fresh off the grill plus baked beans and potato salad!

Friday, July 18

2:30 PM: Update on the Ukraine

Leland Cole will be stopping by to share the latest news on the current crisis between Ukraine and Russia. Mr. Cole, who has travelled to Ukraine more than 20 times since it gained its independence two decades ago, represents CEI which is the Cincinnati Economic Initiative project which gives advice to countries, businesses and individuals trying to transition to a modern capitalistic system.

Sunday, July 20

3:30 PM: Music Recital

We’re well known music lovers at Marjorie P. Lee, and today we’ll have the opportunity to enjoy an exclusive Clarinet and String Quartet recital featuring Clarinetist Jim Wise!

Wednesday, July 23

12:30 PM: Art Class

At Marjorie P. Lee, we recognize that for many older adults, senior life is just another opportunity to keep learning, so we do our best to schedule plenty of lifelong learning opportunities—like our Copper Enameling Class hosted by expert instructor Jaime Frechette.

Friday, 25

2:00 PM: Poetry Reading

Assistant Chaplain Fred McGavran will host another poetry evening this month! There will be plenty of humor, wit, and even a few reflections on senior life.

Monday, July 28

3:00 PM: Book Group

Our book group will meet today in the Lee Library to discuss the fascinating life of Kate Chase Sprague Mrs. Lincoln’s Rival by Jennifer Chiaverini. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the story, Cincinnati-born Kate Chase (later Sprague) was a nineteenth century society woman whose social and political ambitions made her the rival of Mary Lincoln Todd.
