Pink Ladies

The purpose of the Pink Ladies Auxiliary is to improve the residents' quality of life, as well as giving them special attention and TLC. Auxiliary members encourage all residents to take part in the services and activities they make possible. 

Through the generosity of Golden Empire, we have a Pamper Parlor where our residents may have their hair styled, and a Craft Room where ceramic articles are made ready for the residents to paint.

All supplies for the following activities are provided (at no cost to the residents) by the Auxiliary through moderate annual membership dues, the sale of ceramics, contributions and memorials from generous family members.

 

Annual Ice Cream Social

Each June the Pink Ladies Auxiliary hosts an ice cream social for the residents. It is held in the main dining room and on the patio, with live entertainment and carnival style decorations.

 

Monthly Birthday Party and Other Activities

The Pink Ladies host many activities, such as monthly birthday parties. The Pink Ladies often assist in serving the cake and ice cream and getting residents to and from their rooms. They also help with other events, including taking residents to the Nevada County Fair in August, where they can see their ceramics on display. Golden Empire has an annual Seniors Ball, complete with a live band. The residents dress up for the occasion and dance the night away. It is an eagerly anticipated event. Our Dietary Department furnishes a special monthly birthday dinner for the residents and their families. As with all of our activities, the Auxiliary, Administrator, Dietary Department, and Activities Director all work in very close harmony with each other. 

 

Beauty Shop 

The Beauty Shop is where the Pink Ladies host their Pamper Parlor. The Beauty Shop is here to make residents feel well taken care of and special. We try our best to make them feel appreciated and cared for, and they seem to really like the extra TLC.

 

Bingo

The volunteer Pink Ladies conduct the game and assist the residents in finding the numbers on their cards. Prizes are provided by the Auxiliary and through donations from families and friends. Items such as: Perfume, jewelry, stationery, candy, etc. are among the most popular items. This is a very popular activity.

 

Ceramics

Ceramic articles are made by volunteers. They pour the molds, clean and prepare the pieces for firing. Residents do the painting and glazing, making two pieces, one for themselves to use as gifts, the other to be sold by the Auxiliary. Ceramic articles are shown in display cases in the entrance area.

There are two annual sales, one at Easter and another at Halloween; both sales are open to the public. The proceeds of all sales are used for needed supplies and added to the general treasury. Residents often make gifts for their families and friends.
