Love Begins Here at Tivoli


Residents at Tivoli look forward to their visits from the Christian based group Love Begins Here. Every year, students from all around Wisconsin come together to reach out to communities and lend a helping hand. They stay two days at Tivoli, helping residents with their gardens, spend time playing games, having lunch, taking them shopping, to name a few. 

Kelli Bormett, Activities Director at Tivoli shares, “Love Begins Here is a missions group that visits us yearly, with new kids each year. This will be the third year they have visited Tivoli and residents love spending time with them.” 
Yesterday, residents were able to visit the Partners Jewelry Sale with help from the students, and to top the day off they came back to fresh custard from Culver’s that Kelli was so kind to pick up. Since then they have enjoyed playing beach ball, Family Feud, learning gardening tips from assisted living resident Ollie, flying kites, and playing games. 


Lead missionary, Emily, explained this was her 7th year being a part of this program and loves everything about it. She shares, “This program is about helping in our home towns and being able to take back what we learned. I was able to help in the memory care unit earlier today and sang songs with the residents. It was so sweet how they all sang together. I look forward to going back to have lunch with them and see the lady who wanted to hold my hand.”
