National Wear Red Day – Friday, Feb 2nd
National Wear Red Day is celebrated on the first Friday in February to raise awareness of heart disease in women. Part of the American Heart Association and the Go Red for Women movement, Wear Red Day focuses the nation’s attention on heart disease, the number one killer of women in America. Here at the Chateau, staff and residents are encouraged to wear Red! Also, throughout the month, we will offer information on heart-healthy diets and blood pressure screenings for our staff to help everyone stay safe and healthy.
Black History Month Luncheon and Celebration – Thursday, February 15th
Every February, we set aside time to remember and honor African Americans, past and present, who have done so much to shape our country and the world. Black History Month is celebrated during February. How much do you know about the history of the celebration? How much do you know about some of the most famous African Americans? Learn, share, and taste some cultural refreshments of this beautiful celebration.
Mardi Gras – Tuesday, February 13th
The phrase Mardi Gras is French for Fat Tuesday. The term recalls the tradition of feasting on rich, fatty foods for one final night before Ash Wednesday, which marks the beginning of the ritual fasting of the Lenten season. Mardi Gras is about music, parades, picnics, floats, and excitement. It’s one big holiday in New Orleans! Revelers know to wear costumes or at least dress in purple, green, and gold and adorn themselves with long beads caught from the floats of previous parades. Today, we will enjoy pancakes traditionally for feasting on the day before Lent and virtually visit New Orleans!
