Wellhaven column: Daily trivia at Wellhaven

April has been a busy month here at Wellhaven Senior Living. In the beginning of the month, we

hosted free AARP tax prep services. Next, we hosted a variety of events including a Mexican fiesta, volunteer tea party, Lenten services, a veterans lunch and prepping for the Lion's Club

Easter Egg Hunt.

But our most talked about activity has been daily trivia. We started the new project on April 1, and it was no joke. Every week day, Wellhaven tenants and senior guests are welcome to answer the daily trivia question.

Each day, Kelley Johnson, Wellhaven's receptionist, comes up with a new question. If the senior

answers the question correctly, they receive a red ticket. Once they have earned 10 tickets, they earn a free guest meal.

"We have had lots of people answering the trivia questions," said Johnson. "Some will leave to research the question and come back later with the answer. The trivia is really getting people thinking."

The new activity has been a lot of fun for all. Tenants and senior guests will sit together with a cup of coffee to discuss that day's question.

Join us for a Mother's Day Celebration at 6 p.m. Thursday, May 2 at Wellhaven Senior Living,

119 Union St. in River Falls. The celebration will feature live music from JC Rock along with

hors d'oeuvres and desserts. All senior women in the community and guests are invited! For

more information or to RSVP, contact Laura Swanson at 715-426-4633 or lbswanson@tlha.org
