November is Staff Appreciation Month at Oak Crest. We celebrate the dedication of those who work tirelessly throughout the year to make a happy home.

This lady is Zoila Scare she is the spark plug who makes us laugh and keeps things hopping. This photo was taken recently on a trip to see the Christmas tree display at our local library. Zoila and ten members boarded our new van and off they went to put themselves in the mood for the coming season.
Day after day, month after month, year after year some Oak Crest employee has made something fun happen for someone else.
There is no time like the present to say "thanks" for choosing to help us.

It's the lazy days of summer and we at Oak Crest are enjoying the fruits of planting labor. The flowers in the courtyard are blooming and the weather has not been too hot, absolutely nothing to complain about!

Our 1st Annual Oak Crest Summer Make-do was great fun and we are already planning for next year. That's me standing in the pub with our sign pointing the way to our White Elephant Sale. There was something for everyone and thanks to a host of wonderful volunteers we had happy people everywhere. One of my favorite things was watching my grandaughter Katie have her turn at face painting and ending up being the artist! As executive director I want to say " thanks" to all the staff who volunteered their time and of course to the guests and visitors who took time to come and see just what a make-do is all about.
For more information about how you can become a part of our next make-do just call Susan or Marlene at 847 742 2255.
