Happy Thanksgiving San Clemente Villas!

From Jan’s Desk It’s Fall, the heat of summer, for the most part, has passed. It’s now time to plan our Thanksgiving feasts, those wonderful, traditional foods we have on Thanksgiving Day: Turkey with cranberry sauce, dressing, mashed potatoes with gravy, green beans, sweet potatoes (yams), ham, apple salad, pumpkin and pecan pies. Generally, I can’t wait until Thanksgiving to have my favorites, so I will “jump the gun” and cook a turkey before the actual holiday. At San Clemente Villas, Salvador, our Director of Food Service Director extraordinaire, is planning a special Thanksgiving meal as well for the lunch hour. He and the Dining Room Staff do a terrific job of preparing those traditional dishes we like and his staff serves them with love! Please tell your family and friends to make their reservations early if they are planning on having their Thanksgiving meal here. I also want to remind residents Salvador has a “Food for Thought” meeting on the 3rdWednesday of every month at 1:00 p.m. in the library. Those meetings give you, as a resident, one on one time to express your wishes to Salvador. If you would like to plan a tour of his kitchens, please let him know! Let’s all think of something we are thankful for this year. For me, it is the fact I have a very large extended family and we all care about each other! We are fortunate to live in the U.S.A., in Southern California, and in particular to live or work at San Clemente Villas by the Sea! I’d also like to encourage everyone to remember the military, past and present, and their families on Veteran’s Day (November 11th) and always. We will be having a program in the Lobby on Veteran’s Day. Check the calendar for more information.

Blessings to All!
Jan McAlister, Executive Director
