PEOPLE FIRST OF PARK CITY
I live across the street from the finish line for the St. George Marathon. Every year my husband and I like to go over and say hi to the athletes. We always ask if we can help and they let us help hand out water to the athletes when they come in. I saw my nephew come in, it looked like he was going to faint and pass out, but he did good.
This year was the first year for special needs to compete “I’m Able”. Maybe I will do it next year, they all got nice awards.
The weather was really nice. Not hot or too cold.
For Peoples First we went to Stahlei’s Farm and walked around, saw different animals like, horses, bunnies, hens, chickens, lamas, and turkeys. We went on rides around the farm, and ate snacks. It was good fun.
My husband and I are members of the Lions Club here in St. George. Part of being a member is we get to help with Dixie Roundup, our local rodeo. The rodeo goes for 3 nights, and I got to help work the concession stand. I served people their drinks, food, and candy. It was good, a lot of people. It rained on us both nights, it was fun.
The Lions Club also served all of the volunteers dinner the night before the rodeo. We had subway sandwiches and 4 different salads to choose from. I had ham and cheese, it was good. My husband and I ate and then danced until midnight.
Our Special Olympics Bocce tournament was before the rodeo, and my husband and I won! We get to go to state in October to compete again. We won the first place medal, it’s gold. I hung it up on the wall by all our other medals. We had a good time.
We went to Metcalf Mortuary and they gave us a tour. They showed us some caskets, they were new and really pretty. They also showed us where they drained the blood out of the body after people die. They have a table they lie the body on, and showed us the fridge they put the body in. We got to see where they drain the bodies of blood. Then they put stuff in the body to make it hard, and then they do make up on them. They did not show us any dead bodies though.
They showed us where they do the funerals, and where the family sets. They even showed us where they cremate bodies when people don’t want to be buried. I did not want to go into the room, it was too crowded.
My favorite part was seeing the caskets. They had red, gold, pink, and black. They showed us the cute baby caskets too. It made me sad to look at them.
Next month we get to go to Arizona to see Little Black Mountain Rock Art Site. I don’t even know what this is, but I will find out and let you know.
We went on a tour of the fire station and they talked to us about safety, and then went on a tour. They said to call 911 if you need it.
We got to see their fire trucks and the equipment. My favorite was the trucks and how to get in. They use a ladder to get in. I thought that was interesting. The truck is really big.
We get to go to Metcalf Mortuary next month. That will be interesting, we might tour the cemetery or see dead people. We will get to learn about when we die and what they do with our clothes and hair.
This month our People First activity was at the park. It was a Pot Luck. I brought chips to share. We had pop, water, and different foods. Someone made chicken for everyone, it was good. Everyone had a good time. It was really hot, but fun. We had games to play, and then we went home after that.
Last week we all went to the police station for a tour. This was a fun activity for People First. I learned about crimes, and money safety, and when to call 9-1-1. They said to only call if it’s and emergency. We met a lot of police men. They showed us all over the building. We saw the dispatch room, there were 3 people working. They catch the bad people.
Today is our Pizza Party at TURN Community Services We are celebrating 6 birthdays. It is fun to get together for pizza every month. We are gonna have a good time, it is fun to hang out with people. My favorite pizza is vegetarian and plain cheese with a Diet Coke.
This month we went to the People First group, about 40 of us, to the Wildlife Museum. We looked at different animals, zebras, lions, bears, turtles, lizards, tigers, and monkeys. They gave us a box so we could listen and learn about the animals. It cost us $4.00 each to get in. It was worth it. We were there for about an hour, we had a tour. It is a the Dixie Convention Center.
The bears were my favorite because they looked nice. We had apples and water as a treat afterwards. We ate them on the grass outside. The weather was nice. When we were done eating, I went to work and everyone else went home.
Today I hanged out with TURN for our 40th anniversary party. We played games, ate lunch, and had cake, and set and visited with our friends. We won prizes for playing games. I won 2 necklaces and helped out. We had a lot of people here. It is always fun hanging out with all my friends.
Yesterday we went to the park with all my friends that I work with. We go out to eat twice a month with all our working friends. It was fun eating at the park. We had a good time, only it was getting windy. After lunch some of us went to exercise at the gym. I walked around the track 3 times. That is what I usually do. I jump rope too.
I had a good time hanging out with friends and helping out.
Today I went to lunch at Del Taco for my friends early birthday lunch. We go to lunch twice a month for someones birthday, last month was mine. It’s fun being able to visit with my friends. It is a good time.
Last week for People First we went to Canyon Media, one of the radio stations here in town. We got to take turns talking on the microphone. I did not have anything to say, so I didn’t say anything. I thought it was really neat. We even got a tour of the station.
Last week we went to the library and they sang Happy Birthday to all of the January Birthdays, like me! It made me happy. I meet a lot of friends at these activities. At the library we sat and visited and then had our meeting. At this meeting we decided what we would do for the rest of the year. After the meeting they had fruit snacks, and water for everyone.
Today for my Birthday I went to lunch with my friend, and tonight I am going to dinner with my husband at my mom’s home for FHE and my birthday. We go there every Monday for Family Home Evening. I had a special day today for my birthday.
