Week 3: Justin Boldt

July 3, 2018 

Editor’s note: As administrative intern at PioneerCare, Justin Boldt is sharing his experiences with us on a weekly basis. Watch for updates here on our News and Events page.

My third week at PioneerCare was very eventful, as the internship progresses my schedule for each day gets busier, which is very exciting.

Monday morning I was invited to play Bingo with some of the residents, this was my first time playing so I didn’t know what to expect but it was a lot of fun. In the afternoon I worked on some special projects that were very fun & educational. Tuesday morning I sat in on some meetings with Nathan, the chief executive officer, and Sara, the facility administrator. Tuesday afternoon I went over financial statements with Carla, the chief financial officer, which is always educational.

Wednesday I took the day off from the internship to catch up on homework assignments, papers, and exams. Two of my classes finished up on the 28th so I was very busy leading up to that but it felt great to get those finished. Now I only have one class left that ends the 10th of July but won’t be nearly as time demanding as the other two.

Thursday I received a few projects right away in the morning that kept me busy most of the day.

Friday, as most of you know was a pretty big day for PioneerCare as they had their annual 4th of July picnic. This was my first time attending and it was a really neat event to participate in. I volunteered to help with set up in the morning and it was really fun to work with that crew and witness everything that needs to be done to host a large picnic. The Picnic itself was a lot of fun too, there was live music playing and great food. Some of the local veterans marched in, presented the flag, and did the pledge of allegiance and as they finished there were white pigeons released that circled over the picnic a few times before dispersing and flying home to Wadena. So all in all, it was a good event to participate in and it was really nice to see the community involvement from people attending to the local churches lending us tables and chairs for the events.

Have a Happy Fourth of July!
