It’s February, which means we’re another month into 2021. As we kicked off the new year, we’ve enjoyed fun times with our residents and Vineyard Tribe. In our February 2021 Newsletter, we’re covering community updates, events, Vineyard Gives initiatives.
COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic
We’re holding our second vaccination clinic on Wednesday, February 10. The clinic will take place on-site, and Walgreens representatives will administer the Moderna vaccine. All residents and staff are eligible to receive that vaccine. Even if individuals missed our first clinic in January, they can get their first immunization at that time.
Share the Love Giveaway
We’re sharing the love with our followers and local community with a social media giveaway this month!
The week leading up to Valentine’s Day, February 8-12, we’ll give away one fabulous prize each day—many from local businesses! Make sure to stay tuned and follow us on Facebook as we announce more details on how to enter.
