The Crane’s Mill Courier Blog Celebrates its Two Year Anniversary

The official blog for Northern New Jersey’s Premier Retirement Community celebrates its second anniversary!

Happy Second Anniversary!

Please join us in celebrating another great year of blogging in the Crane’s Mill Courier! Throughout this past year, we’ve had the privilege of reporting on so many exciting things happening here at Crane’s Mill. We even had our residents and staff members pitch in with their story ideas.

Looking forward to the year ahead, we’re going to share even more with our readers, including resident profiles, interviews with staff, event coverage, and exclusive looks inside our community.

Plus, we’ll have many more photos to show and stories to share.

They say the traditional second anniversary gift is cotton … so, as an anniversary gift to you and to ourselves, let’s review a few of our favorite cotton-related stories from the second year of the Crane’s Mill Courier … enjoy!

Fleece blankets were all the rage during this past cold, snowy winter season.

We wore our nifty Crane’s Mill cotton polos at our Annual Community Health Fair.

Our second annual Easter Egg Hunt saw a visit from Peter Cottontail.

The dining staff provided cloth napkins to guests at the Fall Cooking Demo.

We examined the fiber of retirement communities with Retirement Living 101—what questions you should ask when visiting a retirement community.

Ok, we admit it, that last one was a stretch, but we really do love that article and had to find a way to share it with you once again.

Besides, an anniversary is a celebration spun from a blend of what’s important, what we love, and what we share. It’s those key elements that have kept the Courier going strong for two years, and will keep the news, stories, and images from Crane’s Mill continuing for many exciting years to come.

Photos from the Crane’s Mill Interfaith Passover Dinner

Crane’s Mill residents, staff, and guests joined together for a special Passover dinner on Wednesday, April 16th.

Last night’s Interfaith Passover Dinner represented much more than a simple holiday meal. The evening was filled with great friends, laughter, and learning. Our Jewish residents played host to people of many different faiths, leading to a true integration of tradition and culture.

Guests learned about Passover traditions not only through stories and anecdotes, but also by engaging in tradition themselves through enjoying traditional Passover fare (click here to see the menu).

Below are just some of the images we were lucky enough to capture. Please enjoy, and check back often for photos, stories, and more from Crane’s Mill.
