Southern Pines Fall Update

joyceSouthern Pines has been a hub of activity over the past few weeks.

In honor of Octoberfest, and by extension German culture, Southern Pines held a raffle for a rather large basket that was filled with all sorts of German foods. Joanna Ghiotto, our interim Director of Nursing, was the lucky winner.

In October, Signature HealthCARE performed Employee Engagement Surveys. These surveys are designed to help management understand how our employees are feeling about their jobs, about the company and about any of the concerns and/or issues that they may have. All participants were entered into a $50 gift card drawing, which was won by Kathy Santana, CAN.

For Halloween week, we had “Dress for Fun Week.” Throughout the week, staff were encouraged to wear their favorite team jersey, a goofy tie, a funny hat and to wear pink in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness, all within the dress code of course. The staff helped to make a Halloween basket that was raffled away, and the winner was Peggy Hyatt, CNA!  Plus, on October 25, Southern Pines held a “Trunk or Treat” event in the parking lot. The Trunk of Treat event was a great success, as we had 15 vehicles and countless children participate.

For Thanksgiving, we are putting together a basket that will be raffled away that includes many of the standard items for the holiday meal.  Raffle date is scheduled for November 21. Who will be the next winner?
