Hickman, activities therapist,
felt that not only is the recipe

Polster has a reputation for
being an outstanding baker.
Most of her recipes have been
it's not surprising that she was
quite willing to share her
Polster along with many of
the residents of Wexenr Heri
tage House have already experimented with''the new
kosher kitchen and all the im-'
proved conveniences that
were especially designed for
in her family for many years.
Four years ago her grandchildren convinced her to put her
recipes on computer so that
her goodies could.be enjoyed
for many generations to come.
As a volunteer for many
years with the Jewish Center,
Hadassah, Council of Jewish
Women, B'nai B'rith Women,

herself to others. Therefore,

The kitchen, being located
in the Activity Room, is a busy
area. All kinds of activities
are continually happening in
this room: some people are
cooking while others are
painting, weaving, sewing and
even gardening in the adjacent greenhouse.
As noted by many, because
the kitchen^ has double facilities more residents can cook
and bake at the same time.
Weekly, residents bake their
favorite cookies, cakes and
challahs with the assistance of
volunteers from the Auxiliary.
According to Gerald • N.
Cohn, executive vice presi- •
dent, the residents are truly
enjoying all the features, not
only in the new kitchen, but
throughout the entire new fa-
acuity at Wexner Heritage
House. Daily, comments are
made by the residents demonstrating how pleased they are
with their new surroundings,
