At 11:00 am we will be singing campfire songs. We will round off our day making and eating S’mores. At 2:00 pm, all Residents, staff, and guests are all welcome to attend our campfire. You may even hear a scary story or two! No registration is required.
National Thrift Shop Day, Wednesday, August 17th
The opening of the one-day-only Trevecca Thrift Shop is on August 17th! During the industrial revolution, the concept of affordable and disposable fashion began. Starting at 11:00 am we will be talking about the best bargains and deals we have found. Come get your buggies ready to conquer the crowds and find your own deal. All residents are welcome to join us at 2:00 pm in the dining room. A personalized custom consultant will be available. Remember to always reduce, reuse and recycle your unused clothes and household items. No registration is required.
National Waffle Day, Wednesday, August 24th
National Waffle Day on August 24th commemorates the anniversary of the first waffle iron patent issued. The invention made waffles more readily available.
Some fun facts about waffles…
1911 – The first electric waffle iron was introduced by General Electric.
1953 – Frank Dorsa’s Eggo Frozen Waffles are sold in Supermarkets for the first time.
1964 – Belgian Waffles debut at New York’s World’s Fair
To start our morning off, we will be making a mouth-watering picture of waffles. At 2:00 pm, we can all make our pictures a reality, with our very own waffle bar. All residents, staff, and families are welcome to attend. No registration is required. Don’t forget Trevecca loves you a “waffle” lot.
