Residents of Prestwick and their family members gathered for an air lantern release to celebrate the first day of summer. This wonderful activity reached across the generations with grand children helping out as well with the lantern releases. Was a beautiful evening to celebrate the summer solstice on June 20th. The glowing orbs reached far into the early evening sky. It was a very amazing sight to see with so many heading so high up into the evening sunset skyline. Could not have asked for better weather conditions for this fun filled activity. Thank you to the staff and all the residents and family members who came out for this truly cool event.
Residents of Prestwick took a field trip to visit the Hyde Museum. Was a beautiful day to take in flowers and art work.

Greenfield/Wilton Fire Department lended its help for a great cause. With Memorial Day approaching soon, Prestwick Chase wanted to raise a new American flag to honor all those veterans who proudly served this nation. We needed a new line strung on the pole and the Fire Department sent out a truck to help place a new line for our flag. When contacted the Greenfield/Wilton Fire Department said they would be happy to help honor the veterans and as you will see in the photos below, lent a big helping hand. We appreciate our local fire fighters and our veterans. This Memorial Day always remember freedom is never free and that all veterans gave some, and some gave their all for that flag to fly proudly.
Prestwick Chase residents volunteered their time to help do roadside clean up of the environment near their community. They removed trash sadly discarded by people throwing it out the windows of their vehicles. Removal of plastic rings also helps wildlife from getting entangled. We are so proud of our residents who donate their time in an event that truly does make a difference for not only our fellow humans, but mother natures creatures as well. THANK YOU!!
Prestwick Chase recently put up colorful Spring flag banners on their six light poles down the main blvd leading into the property. The bright colors are nice for the residents and their families to see. The warm colors remind us that Spring can not be far away. I am sure everyone can not wait for those 70 degree days when the trees bud and the flowers start to come out. Hopefully soon and before you know it ,…it will be time for garden boxes to be planted.
