As we have often mentioned, young people from the Rhinelander area have been coming to Grace Lodge from the very beginning to interact with our residents. They play games, decorate and just spend time with them. It is fun for the elders and provides good opportunities to bridge the gap that sometimes exists between the generations.

The Nativity 6th graders are back again this year. They come once a month and seem to enjoy themselves.

Here at Grace Lodge we love to have the younger generation interacting with the older generation. It is good for both!

Once again, the True North kids are back for the school year at Fort Wilderness and have come to pay a visit. They assisted with pumpkin carving. Thanks for your time!

We at Grace Lodge like to decorate! In fact the small tree that is by the mailboxes gets decorated for just about every holiday. Halloween is coming up and the residents had fun making the decorations for the tree. Thank you ladies!

Grace Lodge believes that an important part of staying healthy as you age is staying active! One of our regularly scheduled activities is cribbage. Brenda, our activities director, is enjoying a game with the guys. We publish the activities calendar on our website to help the families keep up to date as to what is happening. Be healthy, stay active!

Spring is finally here in the Northwoods of Wisconsin. The trilliums and the trout lillies are blooming in the woods, and the ladies at Grace Lodge are decorating!

Here our residents are decorating spring flowers to hang on the tree near the mailboxes. We appreciate the womanly touch that brings a smile to our faces!

Grace Lodge recently was visited by Hodag Kids For Kindness! They are a group of elementary and middle school aged kids who are dedicated to spreading kindness in the Rhinelander area. Each month they focus on an individual service project that can be done from home, as well as a group project where the kids can have fun doing something kind together.  Kindness Matters!

They came and played bingo with our residents and had a great time.

Thanks for the visit!

You are never too old to learn something! One of Grace Lodge’s new residents is teaching us a few things about art. She has given of her time to teach some of our staff and residents how to paint a beautiful flower. What a wonderful gift to give! Thank you for your time and patience.

Grace Lodge believes that keeping active is a very important way to maintain independence and health. We have an exercise class almost every day to give those that desire it a way to keep active in a safe and structured way.

Our exercise class is all about moving the arms and legs while maintaining a sitting posture so that even wheelchair bound people can participate.

The class is so popular that almost half of our residents want to come and enjoy the fun!

Grace Lodge had a visit from the TruNorth Students from Fort Wilderness this October. They will be coming once a week throughout the school year to spend time with our residents doing a variety of activities.

They had a great time their first time out carving pumpkins and meeting the residents!

The residents look forward to the frequency of this new inter-generational program and the chance to get to know the students and spend some time with them. We at Grace Lodge appreciate all the volunteers and school programs that are making inter-generational relationships a priority.
