Nineteen volunteers were honored at Mayfair Manor at the annual Volunteer Appreciation Reception on April 8.  The guest speaker was Deanna Franklin, former Mayfair ombudsman and current Volunteer Coordinator for the Nursing Home Ombudsman Agency of the Bluegrass. Administrator Renee Martin and Activities Director Suzy Rupp welcomed and thanked all volunteers for their service and dedication.  All volunteers received gifts and a certificate of recognition. The 2014 Outstanding Volunteer is Janet Rodgers, who is at Mayfair every day and helps with everything from bringing residents to activities to assisting with outings.   Mayfair is extremely fortunate to have many volunteers who help with outings, bingo, pet therapy, morning exercise, ice cream socials, computer and IT assistance, church and religious services, monthly organ music, arts and crafts, and flowering and gardening programs.  Activities Director Suzy Rupp stated that “our volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they just have the heart!  And, Mayfair’s volunteers get PAID!!  They are paid in six figures: S-M-I-L-E-S!!”  Volunteers who attended the reception included Kayla Brackman, Deanna Franklin, Conrad Gutermuth, Sydney Hobbs, Russell Huffman, Rev. Carl Jones, Melodye Kinkead, Dr. John Landon, Kennie Logan, Orlee Moore, Jeff Morgan, Sally Morgan, Judy Philpott, Rev. and Mrs. Steve Richmond, Deanna Rigney, Goedela Robbins, Janet Rodgers, Bob Rupp, Elizabeth Slone, Ruth Ann Storrow, and Teresa Williams.  Two volunteers renewed old acquaintances:  Sally Morgan, who plays the piano, was Elizabeth Slone’s (“Love on a Leash” Pet Therapy volunteer) second grade teacher!

 

Mayfair Mayor residents enjoyed decorating Easter bonnets and plan to have an Easter Parade.  Jim Scearce decorated his snappy fedora with University of Kentucky blue and white!  Other residents included Eva Sergent,  Joyce Puckett, Helen Kearney, Debbie Harris, and LuAnn Rodriguez.

Several Mayfair residents and staff visited the Lexington Art League’s “Luminosity,” an exhibition featuring regional, national, and international artists working with the medium of light.  Art History Intern Patricia Clements described and demonstrated each interactive piece and gave an informative history of the Loudoun House, where the Lexington Art League is housed.  Residents who enjoyed “Luminosity” included Amy Belvin, Alvina Fetick, Linda Hazle, Debbie Harris, LuAnn Rodriguez, and Jim Scearce.

 

 

Janet Rodgers, a “full-time” volunteer, taught Mayfair residents and staff how to make the latest craze: “Fun Loop” bracelets.  Residents had a wonderful time picking their favorite colors (mostly Blue and White for the UK Wildcats!), using the loom, and showing off their latest bracelets!  Janet has been a volunteer for approximately five years, beginning when her Mom Dorothy Rodgers was a resident here.  Janet helps with just about every activity from Bingo to chaperoning outings.  Thank you, Janet, for your dedicated service and friendship!~

 

President Abraham Lincoln (aka Jim Sayre) visited Mayfair Manor and regaled residents and staff about how he met his future wife, Mary Todd.  President Lincoln also recited his famous Gettysburg Address and signed a copy for Activities Director Suzy Rupp and the residents.  All the residents wanted their pictures taken with the President!

 

 

New and current members of the Red Hat Society enjoyed donuts, hot chocolate and coffee. Mayfair welcomed a total of 21 vibrant ladies to our monthly party. This month we reviewed the history of the Red Hat Society and looked at the book “The Red Hat Society Fun and Friendship After Fifty” by Sue Ellen Cooper. Many new members had never heard of the Red Hat Society, and were excited to find out what all the excitement was about!

The “Energizers” once again performed their dance magic to the delight of Mayfair residents and staff!  The group formed lively dance numbers in traditional Irish colors and dress.  After their performance, the ladies visited with all the residents.  The ladies are members of the Lexington Athletic Club and perform at many facilities as well as at Branson, Missouri.  Thanks to the “Energizers” for another terrific performance!

 

Mayfair residents and staff enjoyed students from Sayre Middle School Choir on March 12.  Several students had solo performances.  Blake Park and Elizabeth Ord performed piano solos, and Madigan Stockham performed a vocal solo.  Missy Hill performed a violin solo.  Elsie McKinney, Janie Bilberry, and Sydney Porter performed on the piano and sang a duet.  Special thanks to Ms. Jennifer Hurst, Choir Director, and the Sayre Middle School Choir from the residents and staff at Mayfair Manor.
