The staff at the Laurels of Hudsonville always look for opportunities to give back to others in the community, especially to those who don’t always get the recognition they deserve. This June, The Laurels of Hudsonville recognized courageous first responders by hosting an Appreciation Luncheon in their honor. Local police officers, firefighters and EMT’s were invited to enjoy lunch with the staff, or pick up a meal to-go. A variety of deli foods, along with an assortment of desserts and beverages were served in our courtyard, which was decorated in a patriotic theme to tie in the upcoming Fourth of July holiday.
All Hudsonville are first responders were welcome to attend the luncheon. Over 30 first responders had a chance to socialize with each other and our staff members. They were all grateful to be honored in such a way. Our hope was that the members of the police, fire, and emergency medical service teams realize how appreciated and valued they are in our community as they complete challenging daily tasks.
This year’s Hudsonville State Fair was another success. There was something for everyone at this year’s state fair. The highlight for the seniors was the Senior Bingo sponsored and run by The Laurels of Hudsonville. Over 150 seniors were in attendance. This fun event keeps growing over the years, and is something the seniors look forward to all year long. This year did not disappoint! Along with providing refreshments and beverages for the seniors, we had two tables overflowing with prize giveaways; “The best prizes they’ve ever seen” said Eunice from Jenison, MI. This was a great opportunity for the seniors to enjoy the afternoon with each other compliments of The Laurels of Hudsonville.
