This week, October 28-November 1, our campus is more alive than ever with a spirit of celebration. The aptly named Spirit Week is our time to celebrate everything from the fall weather to the approaching holiday season, as well as a special Halloween day.
The Spirit Week schedule focuses on peer and staff attire and other fun events:
Monday: Wacky Tacky Day-- everyone dresses their silliest.
Tuesday: Decade Day – we step back in time to our favorite era.
Wednesday: Twin Day – it’s double the fun!
Thursday: Halloween Costume Contest – our spookiest and funniest.
Friday: Perry Wellness Center Day – provides a day for celebration and reflection.
Staff Amanda Perry and Elizabeth Moss have facilitated this week of celebration. Amanda explains its importance: “We are all busy at Perry Wellness Center, but this week of celebration with fall color and Halloween costumes is a special time. It provides a chance for older people to relieve their past and for our younger peers to enjoy the season.”
Learning to celebrate life is a part of the recovery process. Spirit Week provides a great opportunity to practice the fine art of celebration!
