‘Tis the season to be jolly and from the look of these photos, LHP communities and residents are having a cheerful good time. Harriman Gardens planned a holiday meal for residents that turned into a huge feast, thanks to their local Roane Street Grill. The diner was expected to donate green beans and mashed potatoes. When they went to pick up the sides, the diner surprised them by providing it all: turkey, ham, dressing, and gravy. Dessert was another sweet surprise. Jim Jackson handmade 18 sweet potato pies. There was so much food that once the whole property was served, there was enough left over to provide a second holiday feast for Roane County Fire Department!

Residents at Kingsport West had an early visit from Santa. Earlier in the year, then Assistant Manager Teresa Caton worked with several residents to make a community cookbook. Teresa was later promoted to Community Manager at Mountain View, but this week visited Kingsport West for a party and to distribute the books. Here are some of the recipes:

Westview Tower spiced things up hosting an afternoon affair serving Shirley Temples and gourmet cookies, including Ham ‘n Goody’s famous lemon cookies.

Residents at Springplace met in the community room for ham sandwiches, finger foods and door prizes. The residents also participated in their own white elephant gift exchange.
