Versailles Health Care Center recently hosted a Grandparents Day celebration. National Grandparents Day, first proposed by a West Virginia housewife and made official by a Presidential Declaration in 1978, is a wonderful opportunity to express appreciation for our older generation. National Grandparents Day is always the first Sunday after Labor Day. Over 200 people celebrated the festivities with Susie’s Big Dipper, Ruffles the Clown, and the Barbershop Quartet “Harmony”. Harmony performed a special remembrance for those lost on 9/11. A special craft table was also set up for all to create a special craft to commemorate the day!

Kim Fair, Activity Director at Versailles Health Care Center, shared “Everyone was really happy to be together on such a beautiful day and to be with their families. It was really great to see how much love was at the gathering. There were so many generations present for the event. It was just amazing! The lines for homemade ice cream and balloon art never ended.”

Kristy Earick, VHCC CEO/Administrator, added “It was a beautiful day to honor grandparents and a wonderful chance to thank them for all their love. This celebration was about families enjoying time with each other, from newborn to age 103.”
