Leap Year Day at Harrogate

Mar 01 2016

There is always something to celebrate at Harrogate and Leap Year Day was no exception!

Our fantastic Activities team decided to use frogs (leaping, of course!) as the theme for this fun evening in our Clark Auditorium.   We had over 75 particpants in the games and festivities, which included:  A Whacky Hat Contest, Frog Race Kentucky Derby, Leap Frog Lilly Pad Bean Bag Toss, and a game of tossing an inflatable frog into a basket.  Refreshments kept to the theme with green grapes, honeydew melon, cupcakes with green icing, kiwi and green frosted cookies.  There were even frog legs on the menu in the dining room that day!

We made the most of the gift of an extra day this year at Harrogate!

The annual visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus for the children of the Harrogate family was held this past week.  The children were delighted to see their favorite couple in red velvet!  Each child had their pictures taken, and received a nice gift to take home.  They played with balloons and their gifts and were entertained by Santa reading the all time favorite “Twas the Night Before Christmas.”

Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for Harrogate’s Cafe

Dec 21 2015

The Kettle Creek Cafe Sign

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On Friday, December 18th, 2015, we had the ribbon cutting ceremony for Harrogate’s newest addition…. the Kettle Creek Cafe.  For those familiar with the Toms River area, Ocean County’s Kettle Creek runs through Harrogate’s 52 acres and our own Clark’s Pond is a part of this well known creek.  Thus, the name seemed only fitting for our beautiful new dining option.

Our Board President and Resident Council President do the honors.

Harrogate proudly honored all Veterans at the Annual Veteran’s Day program.   The ceremony was opened with the Prayer for Veterans by Pastor Jim McNaull of the Presbyterian Church of Toms River.  The bagpipers played “Amazing Grace” and was followed by the Pledge of Allegience.  There were speeches by our Executive Director, Don Johansen and Karen Argabright of the Disabled American Veterans, Ocean County Memorial Chapter 24.  Amy Shimmin led the “Star Spangled Banner” prior to the Wreath Cermony which was conducted by Harrogate’s own Corporal, Henry Parcell, U.S. Army.  After “Taps” was played by Joseph Prxebieglee, the entire group assembled in our Clark Auditorium sang “God Bless America.”

On Monday, September 28, Harrogate held a full day of fundraising at the community for the fight against Alzheimer’s Disease.   As a result of a bake sale, bingo, raffles and generous donations, Harrogate was able to raise over $1,100.

Thank you to all our bakers, volunteers and donators (staff and residents).  It was a tremendous success!!!
