Beacon House 6/27/12 Norfolk Botanic Gardens by Larry B.

leave a comment »

On June 27, 2012 we went to the Norfolk Botanical Gardens. There we proceeded to observe all of the beautiful plants & flowers. We also went on a wonderful train ride around the gardens with a most informative tour guide who was very knowledgeable about all the Virginia plant life. He also informed us about the extinct plant life. Our tour guide pointed out where the Bald Eagles nest was. He taught us that the Bald Eagle had returned for the past several years. One thing is for sure, we couldn’t have asked for more beautiful weather.

Beacon House plants the annual garden. April 19, 2012 by Amanda M.

leave a comment »

On April 6 the Beacon House started their garden. We are planting a variety of vegetables, including two types of tomatoes, three colors of peppers, and two different kinds of cucumbers. Here is a member and a facilitator planting the first few plants. There’s lots of room to plant more things and room for each plant to grow big!

Occupational Therapy students from TCC came and helped us start some vegetables from seed. They sprouted and were ready to plant in only a week! We can’t wait for the vegetables to be ready to pick and eat. We will use them for the meals that the Culinary Unit makes for the Clubhouse twice a week.

Buddy comes to visit Beacon House, April 11, 2012 by Jeff F.

Buddy, the Weimaraner therapy dog, came to Beacon House on April 11, 2012. He loves being around people. He gave kisses to everyone as they paid attention to him. He was so hungry he ate a jelly bean. He is an adorable dog that thinks he is a human; he does not really play with dogs but would rather be around people. The members of the Clubhouse love to be around him; he comes twice a month to be with us. We took him on a walk and the Beacon House is going to make him an honorary member of the Clubhouse.
