A feast for a cause

The public is invited to attend the Annual Hog Roast at Southfield Wellness Community located at 2416 Des Moines Street in Webster City on May 5 at the Independent and Assisted Living garages. Serving is from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and will consist of pork sandwiches, fixings, dessert and beverage. No reservations are required for the free event which will signal the National Nursing Home Week celebration May 12 to 18. A basket will be available to make optional, tax-deductible donations to Upper Des Moines Opportunity to help those in need. After the event last year, Southfield donated enough money to purchase twelve truckloads of food for the local UDMO food pantry.

Marilyn Middleton, Marketing Coordinator, encourages everyone to stop by after church for a free meal and visit the care center or the independent & assisted living apartments. Staff will be available to discuss the many living options at Southfield Wellness Community, which is owned by ABCM Corporation based in Hampton, Iowa.

The care center will be transformed into a “Jungle” theme for Nursing Home Week and will include decorations, food and activities to match the theme each day. Residents will listen and dance to special music when they dress their best for the 2 annual resident prom scheduled for May 18. Everyone is invited to join the festivities any day May 12 to 18.
