Twin Oaks O’Fallon was built with the belief that those that enter our doors are family. The founder Mary Ann Huber had a vision to provide an inviting place for residents to enjoy their friends, their families, and their independence. In 1981, Mary Ann’s vision became reality when the doors opened of Twin Oaks O’Fallon.
With Twin Oaks being so close to Assumption School, our 8th graders journey about 15 minutes on foot to visit seniors during the year, but also to sing Christmas Carols to residents as we approach Christmas. Although unable to go into the facility due to COVID, our students stood outside of the building, with the seniors seated as an audience.
The sounds of Christmas cheer came through the voices, as Away in a Manger, O Come All Ye’ Faithful, and Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer were sung. The voices echoed throughout the area, bringing joy to close-by neighbors as well.
These visits are arranged through Mrs. Joan Ryan (8th grade Religion teacher at Assumption) and Mrs. Blattel, who Manages Twin Oaks.
