Christmas in July came to Greenbriar Health Center on July 25 for the first time for residents and community.
Eight vendors set up tables to sell their products. There were vendors selling jewelry, essential oils, bags and other homemade crafts. Young Living Essential Oils, Forever Yours Handmade Creations, All Things Wooden and many more supplied their products for customers to purchase.
The Christmas in July event was set up to bring the community and the residents of Greenbriar together. There were refreshments served for the guests to enjoy while they shopped. The space was decorated with Christmas items that had a summer theme to them. There were Christmas trees decorated with suns, flamingos and other summery objects.
Guests had the opportunity to come in during the two hour period and shop for a variety of items. Products were available to buy as-is, while some offered to customize an item that someone was going to purchase.
Greenbriar and the Commons hosts different events to invite the community into the health care center. The faculty at Greenbriar tries to incorporate community activities to ensure their residents are still active in things that are going on outside the building.
