The Manoir in March

Sherbrooke Record - - LOCAL NEWS - Sub­mit­ted by Julie Pa­que­tte Ré­cep­tion­niste Le Re­nais­sance Manoir St-fran­cis

We have had a very busy month of March at Le Re­nais­sance Manoir St-fran­cis. We started the month off cel­e­brat­ing Mar­ti­sor which is a Ro­ma­nian tra­di­tion mark­ing the be­gin­ning of spring. The women of the Manoir were given beau­ti­ful red and white pins, made by a hand­ful of res­i­dents, to ward off the cold winds and rain of spring. The res­i­dents who chose to par­tic­i­pate were also wel­comed to a de­li­cious Ro­ma­nian meal cre­ated by our chef with the help of our di­rec­tor Gabriela (who is Ro­ma­nian) and her hus­band. We had a nice din­ner out at Sebby's to check out the new ren­o­va­tions. We also cel­e­brated womens day with a fun quiz about women that we handed out to each ta­ble dur­ing the meals on March 8th. We had a nice visit from some furry friends from Khal­i­zoo, we had a nice Saint-pa­tricks and birth­day din­ner where ev­ery­one dressed in green. Some were even given nice green ac­ces­sories to wear and a nice cold green beer or gin­gerale to con­sume. We had the beau­ti­ful voices of Cho­rale Éva­sion visit us at the end of the month, we had sev­eral sales as well as the reg­u­lar church ser­vices, films and crafts. We also had our spring car­ni­val which be­gan with the res­i­dents beat­ing the staff (as per usual :() at wii bowl­ing and end­ing with a fun sleigh ride thanks to Misty Maples. Amidst the games, the sugar on snow and the music we man­aged to raise $224. 96 for the Cana­dian Red Cross with our an­nual 5 cent plus drive. Thank you to our mu­si­cians Brian Her­ring and Jean Paul Berg­eron and thank you to the res­i­dents and staff for a fun month!
