A ‘blue ribbon’ day at the fair

Michaud Residential Health Services resident Grace Smith (pictured) made a visit to this year’s Oswego County Fair in Sandy Creek and found out her “Fabric Yo Yo’s Table Runner” entry was a first prize “Blue Ribbon” winner in the juried domestic arts category. The hand-made table runner took Smith six months of sewing to complete. Residents at Michaud, St. Luke, Bishop’s Commons and St. Francis Commons submitted nearly two dozen entries in a variety of juried categories at this year’s County Fair.

Residents from Michaud Residential Health Services, Bishop’s Commons and St. Luke Health Services made the trip to this year’s Oswego County Fair in Sandy Creek and came away with a number of blue ribbons.

The ribbons and other awards were for entries they submitted in “juried” categories ranging from baked goods, to handmade decorative items, watercolor paintings and even floral arrangements.

All together residents submitted nearly two dozen entries, and have almost that many award ribbons to prove it!

 While at the fair, folks toured the exhibits, and took in the sights and sounds at this annual summertime event.

The trip to the County Fair is just one of the many outings enjoyed by St. Luke Family of Caring residents. A full calendar of outings to concerts and other local events and favorite destinations, as well as plenty of “in-house” activities like picnics and entertainment will keep everyone busy and engaged in the warm summer months ahead for residents’ at all four healthcare affiliate locations in Oswego County.
