St. Andrews holds mystery dinner

Menu, decorations delight residents

The residents of St. Andrews Health Campus were treated to an evening full of mystery March 22.

A Mystery Dinner was planned for the residents and featured a menu that contained cuisine similar to what one might expect to find at an old London pub, said Kristin Rowland, resident programming director.

The menu included an appetizer of assorted cheese and crackers, an entrée choice of beef Wellington with burgundy sauce or baked whitefish almandine, English roasted potatoes, Brussels sprouts gratin and crumpets. The meal was completed with bread pudding and English custard sauce for dessert.

“This event was very enjoyable for all our residents, and the staff all pitched in to make it a great success,” commented Rowland. “Everyone truly appreciated the delicious menu and the Sherlock Holmes-like decorations, and our staff had a wonderful time making the evening memorable for our residents.”

Residents also attended a USO-themed dinner in May.


Bank adds to its staff

The Friendship State Bank recently welcomed their newest employees Roxanna Collins, Cristie Williamson, Alec Lauber and Allie Linkmeyer.

Collins and Williamson are full-time employees with the bank, while Lauber and Linkmeyer are working there for the summer. All of the new tellers are considered to be floaters, so you may see them at a different location from time to time.

“It is an exciting time to be a part of The Friendship State Bank,” said Beth Schmaltz, Friendship’s Human Resources Manager. “We are glad to have each one of them to be a part of our team.”
