The month of October brought spirited celebrations to McKay Creek Estates, including a Halloween party and a birthday celebration dinner.

Visitors of all ages, as well as many of the assisted living facility’s residents, dressed up for Halloween fun. Activities included guests trick-or-treating at resident apartments, children’s games and a costume contest. Judge Richard Courson manned the front door, greeting guests and handing out candy.

The top costumes included Lilian Marie Gilchrist, who was an adorable baby Snow White; Brooklyn Williams as a cupcake in an outfit she constructed herself after researching on YouTube; and the adult winner was Mollie Minthorn in an amazing Avatar costume that she created, said Karen Hoholik, McKay Creek Estates community relations director. Also, Kath Reger and Celia Lankford won the resident door decorating contest.

The games, Hoholik said, were run by a fun crew of Pendleton High School volunteers including Justice Craig, Angel Cordona, Rylee Gentner, Nicole Lee, Kalan McGlothan and Lauren Richards. Also, Barb Cleveland lent a hand with the games.

During the celebration dinner, rounds of “Happy Birthday” filled the air for Bill Lankford, Bill and Nettie Jones, John Hardie and Wilma Kispaugh. In addition, Hardie was honored as the Resident of the Month. Also, the facility welcomed Ashelee Fairbank, the new health services director recently joined the McKay Creek team.

The facility invites the community to join them during many activities. For more information, contact executive director Noemi Wiseman at 541-276-1987 or nwiseman@prestigecare.com.
