Oakmont Northville has been invited to a Wii Bowling Tournament.  We graciously accepted that challenge and will host Allen Terrace Senior Apartments to a morning of bowling, coffee and cookies. Our neighboring seniors will provide 1st and 2nd place trophies and bring with them a gallery of spectators.

Kirstie is a fan of good mysteries and she is excited to start a Book Club with our residents. She will facilitate plot analysis while participants try to predict the author’s direction and motive, guess the villain, or simply offer their opinion of the story.

Historian, author, and orator, Ron Ward is our tour guide as we visit a few of the oldest and most beautiful churches in Detroit. He will enlighten us on the history and architecture of each building. Our first stop is St. Mary’s in Greek Town, which is the 3rd oldest church in Detroit originally constructed in 1841.  Our next stop, the Gothic Revival styled Most Holy Redeemer, was where The Rosary Murders was filmed. Our final destination is Ste. Anne’s, the 2nd oldest continuously operating parish in the United States.

Our Mother’s Day Tea has a Victorian theme this year.  The Warnerettes Parasol Drill Team, from the historic Governor Warner Mansion in Farmington, will be here to mingle in their Victorian dresses and parasols along with the Mercy Aires who will perform for our residents and guests.  Decoration design and implementation provided by The Country Garden Club of Northville.

At 10:00am the Mom’s Club of Northville will bring costumed preschoolers to parade and trick-or-treat among our residents. We’ll all end up in the dining room where Balancing Earth promises a fun Halloween program of singing and dancing with the youngsters while everyone snacks on donuts and cider.
At 1:00pm all residents are invited back to the dining room for an afternoon of Halloween themed bingo sponsored by the Balance Home Care Team. They will run bingo games for clients, residents, and family members and also pass out prizes and snacks.
