The 2013 National Day of Prayer was celebrated recently at Georgetown with great fanfare.
There were approximately 40 residents plus another 25 or so stakeholders and community representatives gathered in the facilities main parking lot. We had a welcome and explanation about the NDOP, heard from our residents things they were thankful for, and then observed a moment of silence for those who have fallen in the line of duty to our country and for our veterans. We conducted the Pledge of Allegiance to the U.S. flag afterwards and then joined in a circle for prayer. I prayed and then one of our residents asked to share a few words.
Subsequently we had coffee and donuts and closed our time together. Our service lasted about 20 minutes, not including the time for refreshments. The Quality of Life department was great about getting the residents out for the service and providing the refreshments and were an encouragement and support as always.
