November 2 (Sun) TIME 1:30-3pm: Halloween Party w/Children’s Hospice/Journeycare Barrington IL: This is a Halloween celebration for children at Journeycare who are in the hospice program as well as for their families. Our horses will be there so that the kids can “trick or treat” with them plus get hugs, love and of course…candy!
November 9, 2014 (Sun) 9:00 am Pet Partners testing at Silver Lining Equestrian for MIH volunteers
November 13, 2014 (Thurs) 12:30-2:00pm at Rush University Medical Center: Our minis have been accepted to provide visits to the children in the Pediatric Oncology Unit at RUMC, a premier teaching hospital in Chicago! THIS IS OUR FIRST HOSPITAL VISIT!!! We are beyond excited because gaining access to a hospital is never an easy feat. However, due to the backing of one of their top pediatric oncologists and the Child Life and Creative Arts Program (which offers art, toys and other activities to help children have positive experiences in the hospital) we are allowed to visit. So excited that they recognize the many health benefits of animal-assisted therapy and will allow us to bring unconditional horsey love and joy to their kids at this amazing hospital!
November 16 (Sun) 10:30-12 noon: Visit at Lexington Health Care Center of Lake Zurich and also Silverado in Lake Zurich. 2 of our minis and our volunteers will visit the residents of Lexington Health Care Center of Lake Zurich which offers a full range of short-term and long-term nursing and rehabilitation services. These include short-term rehabilitation, sub-acute services, intermediate and skilled care, hospice care and respite care. The other 2 minis will visit the Silverado, just around the corner in Lake Zurich. This senior care community provides memory, Alzheimer’s and dementia care to seniors and other family members. TWO visits in 1 day again!!!
November 18 (Tues) 4:00-5:00pm: In honor of our Veterans, our minis will be visiting the McHenry Food Pantry. Come out and join us since this is also a public visit. More details to come.
November 23 (Sun) 4:00pm Game: Chicago Wolves Game at the Allstate Arena, Rosemont IL. Come join our minis at the Allstate Arena for some horsey love and enjoy an awesome day of hockey as the Chicago Wolves, the champions of the 2014 Midwest Division of the AHA, American Hockey League, battle Rockford. This is our last public visit of the year so make sure you come out to see us AND the winning Wolves! http://www.chicagowolves.com
