Plano Community Homes celebrates Pride Month with all our LGBTQ+ residents, guests, families, and staff. Here's some History of Pride Month taken from National Today.

On a hot summer’s night in New York on June 28, 1969, police raided the Stonewall Inn, a gay club in Greenwich Village, which resulted in bar patrons, staff, and neighborhood residents rioting onto Christopher Street outside. Among the many leaders of the riots was a black, trans, bisexual woman, Marsha P. Johnson, leading the movement to continue over six days with protests and clashes. The message was clear — protestors demanded the establishment of places where LGBT+ people could go and be open about their sexual orientation without fear of arrest.

Pride Month is largely credited as being started by bisexual activist Brenda Howard. Known as ‘The Mother of Pride,’ Brenda organized Gay Pride Week and the Christopher Street Liberation Day Parade a year after the Stonewall Riots. This eventually morphed into what we now know as the New York City Pride March and was the catalyst for the formation of similar parades and marches across the world.

Speaking of the rainbow flag, it was actually gay politician Harvey Milk who asked a talented designer friend, Gilbert Baker, to design an all-encompassing symbol to take to San Francisco’s Pride March in 1978. Sadly, Harvey Milk was assassinated along with Mayor George Moscone on November 23, 1978, in San Francisco City Hall by Dan White, a disgruntled former supervisor who was angry at Milk for lobbying against having him reappointed on the Board of Supervisors.

Bill Clinton was the first U.S. President to officially recognize Pride Month in 1999 and 2000. Then, from 2009 to 2016, Barack Obama declared June LGBT Pride Month. In May 2019, Donald Trump recognized Pride Month with a tweet announcing that his administration had launched a global campaign to decriminalize homosexuality, although critics have noted that actions speak louder than words.

West Campus celebrated Older Americans Month with a Celebrate YOU Carnival. We had hotdogs, chips, lemonade and finished off with "Orangesicles". All had fun with the games and earned tickets which they turned in for gold coins. At the end of June they'll spend their gold coins at Treasure Trove. One resident said "Thank you so much, WE needed this!' Fun was had by all.

I was blessed to stand on this beach in 2016. It was like the energy of all the lost soldiers was still there. Many of the German bunkers were still there.

We walked down to the water and turned around. It was chilling to know this was exactly what these soldier's we're looking at as they ran into almost certain death running toward those bunkers.

We need to always remember their sacrifice and that of their family.

AMERICAN SOLDIERS ON OMAHA BEACH 🇺🇸

▪️A very powerful Then & Now photograph of Omaha Beach taken today by my friend 8th Infantry Division - Pathfinder

In this picture taken on June 6, 1944, on the eastern part of Omaha Beach, you can see a group of American soldiers including wounded who found shelter behind a small bluff.

It’s hard to imagine what these men must have went through. May we never forget them 🥀

Remember, Reflect and Retell.

This is Memorial Day Weekend.

Navy Quote of the Day:
Sunday May 9, 2021

“We would be eating on a rest period and eating out of our mess tents and the little Dutch kids would come along and start like eating the garbage. Right away we’d stop and we’d give them our meal. Now, we hadn’t eaten many times for a long time ourselves, maybe a couple of days, nothing to eat, in the mud and slop, and give it to them. You know what I mean? Couldn’t stand to see children hungry, like I had been. But still, I had compassion on my part. Very sad. ‘Cause they were good people. But the war was over in Holland on May 8th, I believe it was, and I was in this trench in Holland. And after all the noise, all of a sudden, it became very quiet. Yeah. No noise, no more firing, no more canons, no more guns. And I said, how can I convey this noise, this sound? How can I capture it? Could I capture it?”

Louis Michael Curran, Canadian Army
Queen's Own Rifles of Canada

October 13, 1921 –

Town by town, canal by canal, Canadian soldiers pushed back the Germans out of the Netherlands until the Netherlands was liberated.

Photo: Polish soldier from 1st Polish Armoured Division shares his food with two Dutch boys on November 5, 1944. They were attached to the First Canadian Army.

(The only tank battle ever fought in the Netherlands occurred at Overloon. The Allies also drove into Zeeland. The Germans continue to hold Walcheren and the Scheldt estuary. The Scheldt estuary controlled the approaches to the all important port of Antwerp, vitally needed to supply the advancing Allied armies. Fixated on Market Garden, Montgmery allowed the disorganized Germans to consolidated their position in the Scheldt estuary. Thus after Market Garden, Canadian units were forced to fight the Battle of the Scheldt. The Poles played an important role in liberating the Dutch. The Polish 1st Armoured Division after the Normandy breakout (July 1944) pursued the retreating Germans along the Channel coast. The Poles liberated, the towns of Ypres, Ghent and Passchendaele.)

Remember, Reflect, Respect and Retell to the next generation.

“They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.”

“Let us always be inspired and may the flame of remembrance within us never be extinguished.”

There are so many stories of heroes.

There are so many stories of heroes.

The ‘Count of Auschwitz’…
Captured in France in 1940, British soldier Charles Coward made nearly a dozen attempts to escape German captivity. In 1943, the Germans decided they were done fooling around with him and sent him to the Monowitz slave labour camp.
Coward led his fellow Brits in smuggling food to Jewish inmates and passing coded notes to the Red Cross, who sent them back to England. At one point, he smuggled himself into the Auschwitz death camp for a night, then smuggled himself out and reported back to the British about what he’d seen. This hero bribed SS guards, saved at least 400 Jewish laborers, and gave testimony at the Nuremberg Trials.

Happy National Bike Day!

One of our very own residents, Mr. Elliot, here at PCHSP, got the opportunity to share some information about his favorite hobby and means of transportation, which is, riding his bike!

Mr. Elliot rides between 10-12 miles on average, per week! Mr. Elliot goes on to explain that he has had a few obstacles come up, but they never kept him from getting back on his bike.

“I am almost 70 years old, and I have had hip replacement surgery,” Mr. Elliot added. “Keeping up with my health has been something I have done for most of my life, so keeping up with it comes somewhat naturally, regardless of the obstacles that I have faced with age and my surgery.”

Mr. Elliot mentioned that he continues to cycle because it makes him feel good and stay in shape!

“It’s a great way to meet people! I meet people all the time on the trails that I bike on.”

Whether its biking, walking or some other form of activity, staying active is a must, especially to ensure physical health and mental health as well!

May is National Pet Month! Here at PCHSP, we have lots of furry friends who are here to support and bring company to our beloved residents! Our residents decided to showcase their furry companions by submitting some pictures and other information about their pets! PCHSP and our residents are taking time to thank our pets for all that they do for us!

Pet’s support our mental health by reducing stress, anxiety, and depression. They also help by easing our loneliness, provide valuable companionship, and give us a little extra push in more ways than we think.

From always being at our side, to never leaving us alone when we need space, thank you pets, for all that you do for your humans!

At PCHSP, we are passionate about our residents and our community! Since COVID-19, our residents have noticed a decline in social and emotional support due to the social isolation guidelines and quarantine guidelines addressed by the CDC. During these unsure times, our concern for our resident’s mental health has increased since they have experienced a lack of interaction with their loved ones. As our communities continue to safely open, PCHSP is dedicated to giving opportunities for stabilizing mental health naturally through activities, safe social interactions and strengthening our bonds within our community.

Hi Plano Community!! I am needing some help. I am needing to find a new home for one of my exchange students, Lucas, his host family is unable to host him anymore due to unforeseen circumstances, and we are trying to find a family willing to host him in the area! He is 15 years old and currently a junior at Allen High School. He is from Spain and will need a host family before Thanksgiving until June 4th! He's a wonderful student who loves soccer . He is also involved in the Allen High School theater production class. This is a great opportunity for any family (singles, no kids, has kids, elders, empty nesters....) who want to bring some culture into their home while at the same time welcoming a new family member! Lucas will come with his own health insurance and spending money, he just needs a caring family, a bedroom and occasional rides for after school activities. Please PM or email me ([email protected]) if you or someone you know is interested or has any questions. Any help would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks so much, Teal Scott, iE Local Coordinator
