This is an activity that I did with my wing throughout this past week. I handed out the True Colors Personality Quiz and asked everyone to take it and give it back to me. I then took the results and created a small bulletin board showing the characteristics of each color as well as the names of those you got that color. I wanted to see what the main colors of my wing were as well as how many of those with the same color were roommates. Even though I didn’t have many complete it, it was still interesting to see the results from those that did turn it in.
On the night of April 23rd, we went star gazing on top of the “M” in hopes of being able to watch the meteor shower. Unfortunately, it was a little cloudy and we were facing the wrong direction so we didn’t get to see it. It was still a lot of fun because we were looking for the different constellations and watching for satellites and airplanes to cross over head all while having a wonderful conversation. Thank you to everyone that came.
On Sunday April 23rd the MS Walk took place. The purpose of the walk is to raise awareness about MS as well as money to help find a cure. I want to thank everyone that came out and walked the 3 miles around Platteville. We had the perfect weather for it and it was a lot of fun.
On Wednesday April 19th, we made tie blankets in the lobby. We had a total of 6 fleece tie blanket kits in a variety of patterns and colors. These blankets will be donated to Family Advocates of Platteville. We had a lot of fun conversing with each other while working and it was definitely a nice way to relax. Thank you to everyone that came down to help make the blankets for this great cause!

There is a new Bulletin Board on the wing. This board is all about honeybees and colony collapse disorder. It contains information on honeybees, their life cycle, anatomy, what you can do to help, and what foods we wouldn’t have if we didn’t have honeybees. There are also some fun facts from Officer Osborne who raises bees himself. The border is made from cardboard coffee slips that are painted black and yellow to look like a bee as well as symbolize coffee since that is something we wouldn’t have without bees!
