Simply put a drumming circle is a group of people arranged in a circle experiencing the spontaneous creation of music on a variety of drums and percussion instruments.  What is special about our drumming circle here at St. Peter Villa, is that our very own residents and staff, created the drums with ordinary tools/supplies you find in your household everyday.  They have managed to make beautiful music without spending a fortune.

Drumming circles are a fun, exciting and powerful way to bring people together through music.  It can enhance through visual, auditory and kinesthetic ways of learning.  Our residents enjoy the interaction between their peers and our stakeholders.  It also allows you to relieve any tension and stress that may have built up in  your body.   Drumming is an overall great form of music therapy.

Each year Signature HealthCARE at St. Peter Villa participates in the company’s annual art contest.  This contest is held among our residents in all of our current facilities nationwide.  Above are some of the entries St. Peter Villa submitted.  We truly have a lot of talent residing in our facility.

Our residents decided this past Spring that they wanted more fresh vegetables planted in our Alzheimer’s Garden this year.  The consensus decided we would plant tomatoes, cucumbers, egg plants, beans, strawberries, and bell peppers.  The cucumbers grew and produced so fast that we had our first Fresh Salad Social on July 2, 2014 featuring ‘Homegrown cucumbers”.  The salads were filled with spinach, romaine lettuce, grape tomatoes, cheese, eggs, olives, bell pepper, green onion, croutons, and your choice of a favorite salad dressing.  The smiles of the residents and stakeholders told the story of how well they enjoyed this treat.  Thanks everyone for your support, we look forward to fried green tomatoes soon !

Each year during Carnival Memphis our residents have the pleasure of a visit from the Secret Order of Boll Weevils.  They are a non-profit organization chartered in 1966 that travel and participate in the Cotton Carnival Memphis.  They delight the residents with their mask, beads, and harmless fun.  The Royal Court Carnival Queen and King grace us and take pictures and shake hands with the residents.  They really look forward to the annual visit.

The story of Stax Records is one of a cultural phenomenon that changed the culture of music forever – locally, nationally, and internationally.
What began as a tiny record store in an old movie theater at the corner of McLemore Avenue and College Street in Memphis, Tennessee, grew to become one of the most important music recording studios in the world. When the modest Capitol Theater in the heart of Soulsville USA was transformed into Stax Records in 1959, it began launching the careers of unknowns who would become icons, cranking out a massive catalog of smash soul hits by the likes of Isaac Hayes, Otis Redding, the Staple Singers, Wilson Pickett, Luther Ingram, Albert King, the Bar-Kays, Booker T. & the MG’s, Johnnie Taylor, Rufus and Carla Thomas, and dozens of other artists whose influence remains vital in the music of today. On its many and varied labels, Stax Records also recorded such legends as Big Star, Rev. Jesse Jackson, Bill Cosby, Moms Mabley, and the Grammy-winning comedic genius Richard Pryor.
Today, the Stax Museum of American Soul Music, located at the original site of Stax Records, pays tribute to all of the artists who recorded there with a rare and amazing collection of more than 2,000 interactive exhibits, films, artifacts, items of memorabilia, and galleries designed to keep Stax alive forever. Because it is the only soul music museum in the world, it also spotlights America’s other major soul music pioneers, including the sounds of Muscle Shoals, Motown, Hi, and Atlantic Records, spotlighting the contributions of such soul pioneers as Ike & Tina Turner, Aretha Franklin, The Jackson Five, Ann Peebles, Al Green, Sam Cooke, James Brown, Ray Charles, and many others.

Our residents had a wonderful time this year preparing and celebrating the Easter Holiday, which included egg decorating, parties and Mass.

A popular event at St. Peter Villa are the virtual vacations that allows the residents to experience through picture, sound, education and smell the feel of a new country or state that they may have never experienced.  Memphis Tennessee has its annual Memphis in May celebration in May and this year the country that was honored was Panama.

Our preparation began three/four months ago where a couple of generalized discussions about Panama were held.  Many of the residents through that exposure began doing various art and craft projects depicting the birds and the culture of Panama.  These art projects were totally completed by the residents under the direction of guidance of Donna Demore, a volunteer retired art teacher who went on all the floors exposing the residents to the culture through hands on projects for three months.

The culmination of the event was on Tuesday May 6th where the chapel was transformed into a Panamanian rain forest displaying the art work and allowed the residents easy access to look at the projects and learn further curiosities of Panama.  Before the residents took their “walk through the rain forest” Chaplain Mike Blome’ presented a small explanation of what they would see and what they could touch.

After their tour of the “rain forest” they proceeded to the Hall of Fame Café where further decorations and the music of Panama could be experienced with a “taste of Panama”.  Food and drink from Panama were enjoyed by all.  The afternoon can best be expressed by Cassie Smith a resident who had been discharged home several days before the event, returned with her family.  She commented. “I wouldn’t miss this for the world.”
