Veterans’ Day & New Flag

This Veterans’ Day, our residents were proud to hoist up a brand new American flag on our flagpole. The flag which they purchased replaced a well-loved, but weather-worn flag.

At 11:00 on the 11th day of the 11th month, we held a brief ceremony to raise the new flag. A uniformed bugler played the appropriate tunes for the occasion. We had a moment of silence to reflect on how thankful we are for our freedoms, and the men and women who have served bravely to protect those freedoms.

Following the flag ceremony, we proceeded to our Library to view some short films honoring veterans and share personal veterans’ stories with one another. We concluded in grand fashion with a viewing of Kate Smith’s famous performance of “God Bless America” in the 1943 movie, “This is the Army”. It’s worth watching:

Here at Wood Glen Hall, veterans are important to us. Several of our current residents have served in the military, and many other residents had a spouse, parent, or child who served. We encourage the sharing of veterans’ stories, and wish to honor those who have served. This Veterans’ Day, all of our veterans were presented with certificates of appreciation, and each event described above was done in gratitude for their sacrifices.

Pumpkin Patch

Visiting a pumpkin patch in the Fall is an important tradition that triggers warm Autumn memories. This year, Wood Glen Hall Residents had the opportunity to select their own pumpkins from our very own “Pumpkin Patch”! Local business Lane Farms (visit ) generously donated a large load of pumpkins so that there were plenty for everyone to enjoy!

As you see in the photos, some residents got creative and decided to decorate their pumpkins. We enjoy finding uplifting and positive things to focus on during this challenging time!

Oktoberfest Dinner!

Oktoberfest is a tradition that began in Germany over 200 years ago, with a massive Royal Wedding celebration. It has turned into an annual event that is celebrated worldwide! Read more here:’s%20largest,as%20amusement%20rides%20and%20activities.

Oktoberfest is becoming a fun, annual tradition here at Wood Glen Hall, too! We dine on bratwurst, sauerkraut, and German potato salad (which is slightly sweet, and served hot). During dinner, lively polkas fill the air! The room is adorned in decorations of blue and white, the colors of Bavaria.

We can’t wait for next October…or even September, as that is when it is traditionally celebrated!

We invite you to see why Wood Glen Hall is so special.
