“It was real nice, I enjoyed being out on the river,” said resident David Keller.Along the ride, the group spotted a few bald eagles, foxes and turtles.
“It was great for everyone to get outside together, we had a great time. It was a lot of fun,” said Cid Serva, Activities Director at St. Michael’s.

corn1Residents recently shucked corn on the cob for dinner. The corn had been donated by Wendy Wnuk Schmitt. In addition to the corn, dinner featured a sirloin steak.
“It’s wonderful when our residents are able to help out in the preparation of a meal,” said Tiffany Olson, Administrator at St. Michael’s. “We were grateful for the donation of corn.”

fish1Residents recently enjoyed a day of trout fishing in the valley. The event was made possible by the North American Squirrel Association (NASA). NASA is a non-profit organization providing physically challenged and elderly members of the community with outdoor opportunities, such as hunting and fishing. After a morning of fishing, residents enjoyed their catch by partaking in a fish fry.

wine1Residents spent an afternoon at Danzinger Vineyards in Alma, Wis. enjoying wine and appetizers.
“We had a wonderful time,” said Cid Serva, Activities Director at St. Michael’s, “It was a great opportunity for our residents to sample different wines and learn about the vineyards.”
