Maria’s Second Wind Dream: Quality of Life Dream
Maria was born on July 22, 1926 in Germany. In a recent conversation she mentioned wanting to experience an authentic German band. With the help of Janice Keclik, Community Development Coordinator at Tapestry Hospice, this dream came true for Maria on Wednesday July 27, 2011. The Bavarian Duo (Annette & Dave Wagner) performed at Elmcroft for a special (belated birthday) surprise party for Maria!
With Maria as the guest of honor, our Elmcroft Community enjoyed an hour performance of toe- tapping Polka music! All of the residents and staff joined in to celebrate with Maria. Snap Roswell was there to interview Maria and take some wonderful photos that will be in their September issue. Janice brought Maria her favorite German chocolate and flowers as well as German pastries for all to enjoy. Maria’s family attending the party made the dream complete. Maria played her favorite song on her harmonica for us. It was truly a remarkable day filled with smiles and music!
