November Annlines

Hello everyone,

November is a special time of the year for all of us to celebrate the harvest and give thanks for all we have. This year, 2022,  has taught us the lesson that things we planned on or counted on can change quickly.  From supply shortages to high inflation, we continue to try to do the best for St. Ann’s and the residents we serve.

We have wonderful news that we have received funding to fix the east elevator. Work on it will start as soon as the parts come in and the elevator company is available.  Thank you to everyone for all your support.

Please join us at the next Open Forum on  November 9th to go over the emergency preparedness plan such as fire safety, evacuation, and severe weather. It is required that we offer this one time per year to residents and it is good for everyone to know. Open Forum is a time to meet with Administration and ask questions and get the latest information.

For many years Reverend Bob Stevens would quote this at our Thanksgiving Service:

If you have a roof over your head

If you have a place to sleep tonight

If you have access to clean drinking water

If you have food to eat and clothes to wear

You are more fortunate than many in this world

Wishing you a Happy and Blessed Thanksgiving! 

Sincerely,

Scott and Jan

October Administrator’s Letter

Hello Everyone,
So October sure looks like it is going to be a busy month here at St. Ann’s with many
events and projects planned.
We start with Falk’s Pharmacy holding a Flu and Covid Booster clinic from 8am-noon on
Tuesday, October 4th. Sharon has outings planned for you along with many activities
throughout the month along with our Rummage and Bake Sale and Halloween Party.
Thank you for your support with our fundraisers. Our Coney Island Fundraiser was a success with a profit of $724.50 and this month we will be holding our famous Rummage and
Bake Sale on Friday, October 14th and Saturday, October 15th. Also on Saturday, October
15th our St. Ann’s Angel’s Auxiliary members will have a craft table across the street at St.
Mary’s Star of the Sea Church Fall Market. So, mark your calendar to come down and get
some great crafts, items, bargains and bakery!
We will also be participating in Give MN again this year. St. Ann’s is a nonprofit and we
continue to need community and individual support. Watch for more info to come.
A big Thank You to our garden volunteer Hilary who helped us with the gardens this year.
Father Schweigert and Dean Hagen (our master gardeners from years past) would be
proud.
Hopefully we will still get some nice weather to get out and enjoy and have a Happy Halloween.
Sincerely,

Scott and Jan

September Administrator’s Letter

Hello everyone,
Labor Day and the change of the season to fall is fast approaching. As we celebrate the legal holiday for labors, please take the time to thank our employees
for all their hard work. There is a long important history regarding Labor Day
and the sacrifice that many before us endured so that the American worker
could be recognized for all the hard work they do.
In this last year with worker shortages, all our employees whether salaried,
hourly, and contracted workers have put in many extra hours to help keep St.
Ann’s going. Many businesses post signs that they are working short so to be
patient or reduced hours and you have heard it said, “everyone is working short
so please thank the people that show up!” Please be assured that we monitor
all departments and all shifts and there are days that are challenges.
Just a reminder of some ways to stay informed. Channel 3 on your TV is the “St.
Ann’s Channel” with daily and weekly information. There are photos from previous activities on the channel also. Events and activities are posted on the Daily
Board in the main 3rd floor lobby and are also announced.
To hear the daily menu:
Dial *8 on a St. Ann’s phone
Dial 740-5070 on a non-St. Ann’s phone
To hear the daily activities:
Dial *9 on a St. Ann’s phone
Dial 740-5071 on a non-St. Ann’s phone.
Sincerely,

Scott and Jan
