To celebrate the end of Spring quarter, Venice Barry held a breakfast. 35 residents came out to enjoy pancakes which they could top with a selection of old fashioned maple syrup, Escuminac maple syrup, butter, assorted jams, and fruits. Residents could also enjoy a side of turkey bacon. We were able to include gluten free pancakes and vegan options for residents as well. Residents could enjoy their pancakes with freshly brewed coffee. Afterwards, many residents stayed to chat or do crafts. Thanks to materials contributed by an artistic resident, we had stations to do wax seals, custom greeting cards, painting, and candle making.

On February 2nd we celebrated Lunar New Year at VB. As the event was setting up, several volunteers from the building helped hang up red lanterns and fairy lights on the trees. We also hung up portable lights so that the poolside area could be well lit and vibrant. Meanwhile, one of our volunteers started playing his party playlist. Residents were already appearing a few minutes before the event started. Each person was able to choose their dessert from a selection of egg tarts and pineapple cakes. Vegan, gluten-free residents had the choice of sesame balls. For the main entree, each resident received a combo box of stir fried noodles with either tofu or shrimp and chicken. In all, 45 residents were able to join us in this celebration! Each resident who came also had a chance of winning a red envelope. We had gift cards worth $5 at Starbucks or $10 at Target. A resident kindly lent us a pair of dice to create a game of chance. We created rules of the game based on lucky numbers in Chinese culture. If a resident rolled a rum of 6, sum of 8, or a 6 for one of the dice, they would win. There was an over 1/3 chance of winning. Pictured below are a few of our winning residents.

On October 23, we had a lively event of music, Hawaiian food, and refreshments! This event was the result of a collaboration between the UASRA Rep Leah and the two ARAs of Venice Barry Janay and Michael. Over 40 residents of Venice Barry came out to enjoy some good food and company. We also had candy to celebrate the coming of Halloween. Many residents made new friends with similar hobbies or even met residents in their same field for the first time. Most people stayed for the entire 2 hour period of the event. It was a light and fun affair! Special thanks for the ARA's for supplying the funding for our catered food from Rutt's Hawaiian, and thanks for UASRA Funding for the drinks, candy, and chips!
