DERBY DAY AT CARMEL MANOR
Derby Day is just about a “National Holiday” here in Kentucky. We at Carmel Manor enjoy the festivities as much as those at Churchill Downs while avoiding the crowds and heat of the sun. Residents participated in our own “Derby Hat” decorating day and proudly modeled their creations. Derby Day would not be complete without Mint Juleps and some anticipation of the big race on the following day. A Derby Party followed and strains of “My Old Kentucky Home” could be heard throughout the activity center. On Saturday we were all glued to the large screen TV to see the annual “Run for the Roses” in true Kentucky fashion.
