Fort Hudson Supports the Washington County Fair

Fort Hudson is proud to be part of Washington County, and equally proud to support The Washington County Fair! Several FH Staffers, Cindy Bonnaci and Jenny Dufour both participated in showing their animals at the fair.  As part of her son’s 4-H Group the Barnyard Circus, Cindy describes“…the fair lets the kids learn responsibility by taking care of cleaning, caring, and feeding the animals”.  Jenny Dufour, Ward Clerk also participated in the fair.  Jenny also says seeing the kids at the fair makes it memorable!

Residents & staff did a special outing to the fair – with laughter, food, fun & good ‘ole fashioned Fort Hudson spirit present!  Danita W. was willing to go the extra mile of support…pictured she is giving Cindy’s cow Riley” a hug! 🙂

Fort Hudson Celebrates National Nutrition Month – March 2018

Get ready for National Nutrition Month at The Fort! Led by FH’s Registered Dieticians, March will offer activities, events, and drawings to inspire staff to make informed food choices and develop sound eating & exercise habits. This year’s theme: “Go Further With Food”!

Weekdays will offer a “test your nutrition smarts” question of the day – located by the timeclock. Give your answer, and hope to win the daily prize drawing from correct responses.

Weekly luncheon (signup required due to limited seating) will be offered in the boardroom – entrees made with whole foods to learn why we “go further with food”.

Tasting Tables will be on display in key areas of the building, twice through the month…stop by to see what the item or topic of the day is! Be adventurous and try a taste test!

All who participate throughout the month, will be eligible for a Grand Prize Drawing in early April! So get involved to support our Nutrition Services Team Members…with the added benefit of food education!
