March’s Edition of the Yolo Alzheimer’s Café was something to toast! This month’s theme was St. Patrick’s Day and we had tons of fun! We started the party by sharing facts and reminiscing while enjoying a delicious snack and green punch.
Although the Irish take credit for the claiming of St. Patrick’s Day celebrations, it is a holiday that has come to be celebrated by people of all backgrounds and event celebrated by people of different faiths. St. Patrick is well known to be the patron saint that the holiday was named and associated with but did you know that St. Patrick wasn’t even Irish?? St. Patrick is said to have been born in Bannavem Taberniae in his autobiography and while little is known about his birthplace, it is believed to be in England. St. Patrick converted many Irish natives to Christianity over a 40 year span and was named patron St. Patrick for his actions and not for his birthplace.
After sharing facts and stories, it was craft time and what better craft for St. Patrick’s Day then making your very own leprechaun. We used popsicle sticks and orange, green, black and yellow paint. We then glued on bobble eyes and voila! Next, we enjoyed a very spirited game of can toss. The top winners got special prizes!
While the Café is a free monthly social gathering for caregivers & family members with Alzheimer’s, we also welcome all community members to join us to meet new friends, enjoy music, fun activities & refreshments! We are also looking for more companies or organizations to join us in sponsoring or also for volunteers.
