PT Month’s Patient Compliance Winners
Colors & Canvas
In September, we hosted and “Colors and Canvas by Joni and Marie” night at the Spooner Clinic. We had food, painting and most of all FUN!! We were taught how to blend colors to create a sunset with a sailboat on the ocean. Our teacher, Joni Campbell, brought us back to basics and taught us how to create the image on our own with the use of blending simple colors and using different brushes. The clinic was a great place to host this with our space and lighting. We look forward to hosting this enjoyable event again soon!
Rice Lake Open House
Rice Lake Physical Therapy & Rehab Specialists hosted a Tailgating Open House on October 20th! We had over 100 people in attendance. The Howler Building consists of Chippewa Valley Orthopedics, Edward Jones, Toboggan Dental & Rice Lake PT. We served brats, hotdogs, chips, beans, desserts and drinks! It was nice to talk to past patients and get to know some people from the other businesses.
The 3rd Annual Food Drive and coloring contest kicked off November at Spooner Physical Therapy and Rehab! Last year we had over 300 amazing turkeys that covered our windows and make it hard to decide who did the best coloring job! We had entries from Spooner Elementary, Shell Lake Elementary and St. Francis. There were several ways to win: Our patients along with staff voted for the best picture from each grade for their artistic ability and with every food donation an adults name went into the drawing for a chance to win all the fixings for “Thanksgiving” dinner. Last year we collected over 600 lbs of food for the local pantry. We love helping the local community! The pictures below are from last year’s drive! Keep your eyes open for next times newsletter for this year’s pictures and winners!
