Hello Residents,
 
Spring has arrived, and Regency is so excited that we have officially started reconnecting families. The smiles, joy, and love are ever present, and we couldn’t be happier. We are finally seeing the rainbow after the storm, and things are looking so much brighter. We have enjoyed seeing families again, as well as meeting new ones.

We are beginning to schedule many activities that were put on hold due to the pandemic, and many giving hearts are happy to volunteer and begin sharing in the day-to-day joys of your loved one(s). We understand the healing and fulfillment that communication and the human touch can bring. We begin these new adventures, keeping in mind, the safety of your loved one(s) always comes first.

We value each and every resident and their families, and without you, we couldn’t have persevered through the last year. Aprille, our Activities Director, welcomes any new ideas as well as any new volunteers who want to share in our experiences. Feel free to give her a call 731-661-9888.

We are blessed to have each here making up our wonderful community! We love you!
 
Carol Wright,
Executive Director

EASTER FACTS YOU PROBABLY DIDN’T KNOW
 
 
 
 
 
» The origin of the Easter Bunny dates back hundreds of years, beginning in pre-Christian Germany. The hare was said to be the symbol of spring and fertility. As Christianity spread across Europe, pagan traditions blended with Christian holidays, which saw the Easter Bunny lay colorful eggs for well-behaved children on Easter Sunday.

» More than 1.5 million Cadbury Creme Eggs are produced every day. That is 500 million creme eggs per year! If you stacked them on top of each other, you’d have a tower 10x higher than Mount Everest.

» Decorating Easter eggs is derived from a Ukrainian tradition. This traditional act called “pysanka,” involved the use of waxes and dyes, taking off after Ukrainian immigrants came to the U.S.

April Fools’ Day– Pranks Across History
 
Though April Fools pranks are an old tradition in American and European cultures, no one really knows the exact origins of this trickster’s holiday.

The pranks got more involved over the years, and here are a few of the best April Fools hoaxes history has to offer.
