Christmas is a time filled with so many activities it is hard to keep up sometimes. Grace Lodge activity department is always looking for fun seasonal things to do.

This year, thanks to our wonderful volunteers and staff, we were able to make Christmas cards!









We also made cut out cookies, just to get our hands in the dough and make a good mess!









Thanks to all the other people who volunteered to make this Christmas a joyous season at Grace Lodge!

Grace Lodge is proud to be the home of a Hodag!

It is claimed that “Rhinelander is the Home of the Hodag, a mythical creature created by Rhinelander pioneer and timber cruiser Gene Shepard in 1896. Although it originated as a hoax, the Hodag became a local legend and the symbol of the City. Many local businesses, as well as the Rhinelander High School sports teams, are named for the Hodag.” This is from the cities website.

To read more about the legend, go here .

The owners of Grace Lodge, Terry and Lynne Friese, have recently purchased at an auction what was termed a “Patriotic Hodag” for our staff and residents to enjoy. Come by and check it out next time you are in the area!

Halloween has come again! It seems to do that every year for some reason :)

We here at Grace Lodge like to decorate and carve pumpkins like many others do.

Here are a few pictures for your viewing pleasure. We hope you enjoy them as much as we had taking them.
