Christmas Sweaters, Cookies, & Tess!
Seniors Connect — a program for travel, education, and connection at Elder Care — wraps its 2022 season with an “Ugly Christmas Sweater, Cookies, & Tess” party on December 2. The event will take place at Elder Care from 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm. Pre-registration by November 28 is required.
What is an ugly Christmas Sweater? The trend began when a famous 1980’s television character wore an ugly Christmas sweater. By design, the trend of mix-matched patterns and color mixing on the wooly pullover has continued during the holiday season for fun and laughs.
Angie Thompson, Elder Care Director of Development, announced this week that the festivities will also include Santa & Mrs. Claus, a photo booth with hilarious Christmas props, yummy treats from Melody’s Creative Cuisine, a mini silent auction featuring art pieces created by Elder Care DayBreak participants, and award-winning journalist, Tess Maune, KOTV News On 6 anchor.
Tess, an El Reno native, has covered various stories for News On 6 since 2012, including her own News On 6’s outdoor and wildlife reports — Outdoor Adventures With Tess. She will share some of her most memorable adventures with party guests.
Thompson added that keeping seniors safe is Elder Care’s highest priority. “There is a limit to the number of people we can seat in the space and ensure social distancing. Pre-registration for each guest is required, either by phone or through Elder Care’s Seniors Connect webpage.” Each guest must register as an individual and not on behalf of a group. Registration will close if the guest list exceeds the number permitted in the room.
Top prizes will be awarded for the best sweater. “We hope guests enjoy hearing about Tess’s most memorable adventures, taking photos, sharing laughs, meeting new friends, and wearing fun sweaters. There is no cost to attend, but donations will be accepted.”
