Our Memory: Arbor Day Lodge Weekend

Shelly Pichik

Memories for Kids sent Shelly Pichik and her family to Arbor Day Lodge for a weekend retreat.  To kick things off, the family had the amazing opportunity to create their own jewelry at Alletti Jewelry, in Rockbrook Village. At Arbor Day Lodge, Shelly, Mike and their two daughters attended a private baking class and made the infamous Arbor Day Lodge apple pie. The family was also treated to massages, a tree adventure, dinner and a Mother’s Day brunch.

Shelly Nogg Pichik lost her battle with cancer on February 28, 2015 at the age of 52.
