Saturday, January 28th marked the Lunar New Year! 2017 is the year of the Rooster. Chinese horoscopes say that if you are born in a year of the roosterthat this year will be unlucky, but we are not short of luck here at WaHu!
We celebrated the Lunar New Year on Friday the 3rd. WaHu partnered with The Hospitality Center for Chinese and the 700 on Washington to throw a big bash! We were wowed with amazing Lion Dancers! The dancers performed two dances, one to modern hits and one to traditional drum music. DJ Morgan Poepping also provided some fun music for residents to dance to!
Shuang Cheng and United Noodle provided Chinese food to help everyone celebrate and With a Twist bartenders were whipping up some cocktails and serving a few different types of Chinese beer. Plus there were a few sets of Chinese checkers and a table to make Fai Chun good luck signs!
We also had a raffle for HP Sprocket Instant Photo Printers! We want to send out a huge congrats to our raffle winners, Mohammed Mansour and Rosine Johnson who each took one home.
Keep your eye on the WaHu Facebook page as Photographer Nina Perkins will be posting the fun candids she took, as well as the photo booth pictures! We loved seeing residents and staff getting goofy!
We hope that everyone enjoyed themselves. If you missed it, don’t fret! Keep your eye on WaHu social media pages for more upcoming events!
