t$$tngzv SPRING ISSUE MARCH • APRIL • MAY, 1990 SctiWty ajijjfolybts A WINTER ADVENTURE The holiday season has ended and the residents are getting anxious for spring weather. Many of our folks, for the first time, had the opportunity to go on a sleigh ride. This was one of the most exciting adventures they have taken. During the holiday season a group of 16 residents were taken to the Swiss Chalet for lunch and their sleigh ride. The day was brisk with a touch of snow to help set the mood. Volunteers brought extra warm clothing in to help bundle up our residents. Needless to say, everyone looked as though they were ready for a day on the slopes. Everyone had a great time and enjoyed the beautiful scenery. After the residents finished their sleigh ride, they returned to the Chalet for a nice hot lunch. Special thanks to the folks at Swiss Chalet for adding those special touches and for making it a pleasant memory for everyone. Pictured are the first group of adventurers on the sleigh ride.

The Bethlen Home is very proud and honored to know such a special lady. Resident, Marie Hartung was bom on May 22nd. 1890 in a small town in Grafenhausen, Germany. During her stay in Germany she attended a trade school and also worked as a maid. As every girl dreams she fell in love and Marie, her fiancee, and her brother immigrated to Canada in 1912. During their stay in Canada she was married. Several years later in 1923, they moved to the United States and settled in Latrobe, Pennsylvania near Saint Vincent College, where her husband was soon to become a printer for the college. Marie was blessed with three children Peter, Bruno and Erwin who live throughout the United States. Marie has various hobbies, but one she enjoys most is listening to music. Her favorites are classical and operas. She also is known for being a great singer in our singalongs. Marie was admitted to the Bethlen Home in the spring of 1983. Her family and friends will be planning a special celebration. Congratulations again Marie, we wish you many years of health and happiness.
