Elaine Sheldon is Activities Director at Premier Estates

By Ray Kappel News Editor

 

Elaine Sheldon has been with Premier Estates for 27 years. She was a CNA when she started and worked at that job for two years, then was put in medical records for 23 years. The last three years she has been Activities Director.

The job, as you can imagine, keeps her hopping. She leads the games the residents play and arranges music and other programs for them. She is in charge of the religious services, having several area churches trade off on conducting the observances. She gets to know the residents so she can better meet their interests. To do that, she interviews each one to see what kind of activities they will like.

Table Rock bar nearing its opening date

By Sharla Sitzman

I’m in Table Rock on a Saturday morning. There’s a new sign in town. “The Round Up,” it says, “Bar and Grill.” “Cold Beer.” “Good Service.” That sign is on the front of a 98-yearold building on the south side of the Square that was used as a tavern for many years, and now will be again.
