The late Horace Knowles of Concord, CA. created the idea to celebrate National Wheelchair Beautification Month. He believed the power of a single flower could brighten the image of an ordinary wheelchair to spread smiles. We wish to express our deepest sympathies to the family of Evie Pugh, Jean Dostal and Kenneth “Pete” Hoing. We will miss them and will keep the family in our thoughts and prayers.

We’d like to thank the Pork Producers, especially Denny and Doris Geinger, for providing pork burgers for our outdoor picnic in June. The weather was hot and humid but we were all out there and had a wonderful time. Thanks to all staff who helped to make it a very enjoyable day. Thanks to Steve Castell for the entertainment also. We’d like to welcome our new residents, Larry Mabb and Larue Woosley to Westbrook Acres. We look forward to getting to know you and hope you enjoy your stay here.

JULY HOLIDAYS Canada Day Independence Day Moon Day -July 20th is the 50th anniversary of landing on the moon. On July 20th, 1969, the U.S. lunar module Eagle detached from orbiting Apollo 11. Commander Neil Armstrong, Lunar Module Pilot Buzz Aldrin, and Command Module Michael Collins were the astronauts on the mission. Armstrong and Aldrin are more familiar names since they were the ones who walked on the moon while Collins remained in orbit. Armstrong was first to step foot and walk on the moon. He said, “That’s one small step for (a) man, one giant step for mankind.” His quote instantly became a part of history.

Humorous Quote Ants can carry 20 times their own body weight which is useful information if you’re moving out and you need help getting a potato chip across town. The Statue of Liberty is 151 feet tall, to answer the earlier question. A man storms into a laundry and throws a small piece of lace on the counter and says, ”You’ve got a lot of nerve advertising that you’re a specialist in fine things. Look at this!
