Mayfair Manor’s New Jukebox!

On Friday, October 2, Pete Ramsey, Vice Chairman and Board Members Bobby Stith and Chris Cherry  of Opal’s Dream Foundation delivered our new jukebox!  Opal’s Dream Foundation is a non-profit charitable organization dedicated to meeting the needs of the elderly and improving their quality of life.  And, the jukebox did just that!  Hundreds of songs may be downloaded, CD’s may be used as well as the radio.  Located in our Dining Room, residents can be seen sitting around the jukebox enjoying all kinds of music.  Many are even “dancing” in the chairs!  The Board members also delivered several boxes of Christmas presents that Santa Claus will distribute at our annual Christmas party. Many thanks again to Opal’s Dream Foundation for fulfilling our wishes and dreams!

“A Stroll Down Memory Lane” at Mayfair Manor

The historic Kentucky Theater located in Lexington, KY was first opened in 1922. To this day, it’s one of the few remaining movie palaces within the United States.

In keeping with the theater’s age and old-fashioned sensibilities, each summer the Kentucky Theater hosts a Summer Classics Series that shows a different classic film each Wednesday throughout the summer.

Residents and staff from Mayfair Manor and Signature HealthCARE of Georgetown enjoyed a leisurely day at the Kentucky Theater where we listened to organ music played by Dr. John Landon before our movie began.

Dr. Landon is a retired UK professor of social work, a retired church organist, Hall of Fame recipient and volunteer extraordinaire at Mayfair Manor. So the residents from Mayfair Manor were able to get a double dose of his beautiful music.

The classic movie that was showed yesterday was Charade, featuring Audrey Hepburn, Cary Grant, and Walter Matthau. It was an entertaining, suspenseful movie with a touch of romance. The funny part was listening to our ladies swoon over Cary Grant. It was a fun little stroll down memory lane.

Thanks to all that participated in this Staycation Fun!
