1:00 PM: Memoir Writing

Everyone has a story to tell, and at Marjorie P. Lee, we’ll help you get it down. The memoir writing group, facilitated by the excellent Kathy Stewart, will meet today in the Lee Library for an afternoon of sharing and recording their life stories.

5:00 PM: Dinner Out

Tonight, senior living hits the town as residents head to the heart of Mariemont to dine at the exceptional National Exemplar located in the historic Mariemont Inn. This quaint local favorite boasts an excellent menu of American-style cuisine and a gorgeous patio.

10:00 AM: Zoo and Botanical Gardens

Today we’ll be heading to the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Gardens for lunch and a tour of the newest (and really quite spectacular) part of the zoo, Africa. This area features the African lions, the painted dogs, cheetahs, and a newly remodeled Base Camp Café overlooking the new exhibit areas.

7:00 PM: Musical Revue

Senior living is taking a wonderful trip down memory lane this evening with Nostalgia.  This talented duo of Don Estes and Norman Begin will be presenting a musical revue with songs from the 1920s through the 2010s this evening in the Event Center.

5:00 PM: Picnic in the Park

With the heat of the dog days, hopefully, well behind us. The Marjorie P Lee Auxiliary will be hosting their annual fall picnic at Woodland Mound Park— a fun cook-out at the park the prepared and served by some of our very own. With great food and amazing scenery, it’s sure to be a good time for all.

Thursday, September 18

5:00 PM: Bowling Tournament

The Wellness team is hosting a Wii bowling Tournament this evening in the Event Center.  Teams of two are forming now and consist of a MPL Resident and a staff member.  Anyone can join in and spectators are more than welcome to come and cheer on the teams. 

Let’s get moving and have some fun!

11:30 AM: Day at Belterra Park

Marjorie P Lee is spending a day at the races! We will venture down to Belterra Park (formerly River Downs) for lunch and a day of live horse racing.  We will dine in the Stadium Restaurant then head to the grand stands to watch.

3:00 PM: Book Group

For residents looking for a quieter afternoon, the book discussion group will be meeting in the Lee Library this afternoon to discuss Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald by Therese Anne Fowler—a fascinating look into this equally fascinating American icon.

7:00 PM: Lifelong Learning Opportunity

This evening we are pleased to welcome Brett Harper as he presents “Nature seen through the eyes of artist Charley Harper.”  “I count the wings not the feathers,” was the credo of the late modernist Charley Harper (1922-2007).  Brett Harper, the son of Charley and Edie Harper and director of the Harper studio, will present an illustrated lecture about his father’s 60-year career.  The evening is recommended for anyone who would like to know more about Charley, nature art and how art is created.

Tuesday, September 30

Marjorie P. Lee is getting into the Oktoberfest spirit this evening in the Victoria Biergarten(courtyard).   Dining services will prepare a lovely German inspired meal and the Cincinnati Schnapps band will be kicking off the evening with some polka party favorites
