September was an incredibly exciting month at ACMCC! Fair time is always a favorite time of year for residents, staff, volunteers, and family members alike. 2017 was no exception.
ACMCC participated in the Allegan County Fair Parade with an incredible group and were thrilled to receive the honor of “Best of Show” for our parade float.
The Fair featured a theme this year of “Where Memories are Made” and with 5 generations involved in our float that theme was incredibly appropriate. Our Fair Float as always included the participation of our elders on the float and in the bus.
Our now centenarian, Lucile “Jerry” Nyberg (pictured at right with her birthday cake) was one of our beautiful ladies featured on the float, just two weeks prior to turning 100 years old and allowing us to celebrate with her on September 28th.
ACMCC was also honored with a “First Place” ribbon for our booth in the Agricultural Building; such a proud moment for the numerous staff and residents involved in designing the booth and providing crafts, vegetables, canned goods, flowers, and antiques to the memories of “Grandma’s Kitchen” brought to life.
