Amador Valley – Recognized for Contributions at Pleasanton Nursing and Rehab

Dear Editor,

The Amador Valley Assistance League plays a big role in our residents’ lives here at Pleasanton Nursing and Rehab.

The wonderful ladies visit our facility many times during the year. This past Christmas, under the direction of Lois Cox, they transformed our Christmas tree in the lobby into a peacock theme feathers and all. Lois made big peacock bows for our front doors to make our fresh wreaths look extra special. They decorated the dining room tree with a red and white theme making it look like a candy cane.

Veterans Day and Memorial Day, they bring our residents flags and sing patriotic songs at our annual services for our veterans. Twice a year they put on a fancy tea party with fine china and fresh flowers along with fancy hats for our residents to wear. Once a month they turn our main dining room into a casino with a rousing game of roulette complete with prizes for the winners.

This past Valentine’s Day, they decorated our living room for our Annual Valentines Couples Luncheon, with fresh flower centerpieces on the tables. They helped to serve our couples sparkling cider along with their entrees and special red velvet cake.

We at Pleasanton Nursing and Rehab appreciate the time and effort these special ladies take to make our residents lives so extra special. The families and staff truly get to see what the Pleasanton community does for our residents.

What an asset to our community. Well done ladies.
