Special week, special cars roll into Ecumen

The Ecumen senior living campus in North Branch is buzzing with activities in celebration of National Long-Term Care Week.

Festivities began with the annual Classic Car Show Monday afternoon, when residents were encouraged to dress in throw-back style with vintage shirts and jeans.

How about a Cheese and Bison Tasting? This was Tuesday’s theme, featuring representatives from Eichten’s Bison Farm.

On Wednesday, residents traded their animal prints for garb on the more colorful side as they walked, wheeled and rolled around campus on Bright Color Day.

Coming up is Wear Western Day, complete with a resident barbecue, at 2 p.m. Thursday, May 15, followed by Senior Olympics and Sports Apparel Day with events starting at the same time Friday. At 9:30 that morning, residents will head out to a clothing sale in Lindstrom.
