We would like to thank you for your interest in celebrating National Activity Professionals
Week, January 16-21, 2011. This year’s theme is
our hope that this packet will help as you design exiting programs to enrich the lives of those
you serve and enlighten those you work along side of!! NAP week was created to recognize
the contributions of Activity Professionals in all adult communities. It is a chance for us as
Activity Professionals to shine our light.
This year, we are enclosing theme programming information which will hopefully give you
some ideas not just for this week but rest of the year as well. Included a letter addressed to
Administrators that you can share to remind them to honor the activity department as an
important part of your community’s team. Samples of proclamations, press releases & public
service announcements, for the week are included. You can also find more information on the

You Light Up My Life

It's Monday morn, the week is before me
Waiting for something to fill up my day,
I'm tired of TV, don't want to nap now
Alone with my thoughts, but then you come along.
And you light up my life,
You take me out to celebrate,
You light up my day
With friends and fun and games.
Red hats and tea, Bingo and music,
Art, crafts and socials; no time to be bored
Laughing and singing, friends all here with me
Your gentle grace, and your smiling face.
And you light up my life,
You give me hope to carry on
You light up my days
And help me feel at home
I'm not alone
With you at my side
Cause you--you light up my life.
