Summer is in full swing out at Country Meadows in Neepawa. At Country Meadows, we love to take many different handi-van outings to many different locations regularly.

  Examples of trips this summer are: various restaurants in town for a delicious lunch out, afternoons enjoying the beautiful gardens at Glenda and Joe MacPhee’s, picnics at our local wonderful bird park, the Neepawa Legion, Plumas, Minnedosa, country cruises, Clear Lake, the Sandhills Casino, Austin museum etc. To offer this activity, we do various fundraisers throughout the year to cover the costs of these trips to ensure all residents get to go out and enjoy the trips. One of the fundraisers we are doing at this time is our summer raffle.  We are fortunate for the donations from Neepawa Home Hardware, Neepawa-Gladstone Co-op, Brian James and Nathan White for the great summer prizes.  Tickets are $2.00 and can be purchased at the Country Meadows business office or through the activity department staff.  Come buy a ticket and try your luck at winning the barbecue or the great patio furniture!

There are some special events coming up in August.  Our events are always open to members of our community to come and attend and visit with the friends of Country Meadows.

Country Meadows Personal Care Home will be holding their Annual Strawberry Social on Thursday, Aug.2 from 1:30-3:30 p.m.  It will be an afternoon of socializing with entertainment provided by the Happy Rock Band as well as delicious treats served with your coffee or tea.  There will be a silver donation for the event as well a prize table for the Country Meadows recreational department.

We are excited to be having Don and Shirley Winthrop’s petting farm to be coming to our grounds to showcase the various little animals for residents and visitors. The event will be in the courtyard off the multi-purpose room on Wednesday, Aug. 8 from 1:30-3:30pm.

On Tuesday, Aug. 21 at 7:00 p.m. is our “Cruise Night” out at Country Meadows.  There will be a great display of antique cars and tractors in our parking lot for all to enjoy.  The evening will consist of taking a trip down memory lane with the antiques, live entertainment and of course some yummy treats! If the weather is not cooperating on the 21st, a rain date of Tuesday, Aug. 28 has been set. Everyone is welcome to come out and enjoy with the grandparents of Country Meadows.

We at Country Meadows are hoping everyone is having a safe and wonderful summer, stay cool and hope to see you soon!
