Residents of Prestwick Chase took a tour of River Maple Farms in Glenville New York. The group learned about the process of making maple products. It truly is amazing to see what all goes into making a bottle of maple syrup!
WHERE DOES MAPLE SYRUP COME FROM?
Maple sap comes from maple trees and is mostly water (1-2% sugar). Each spring when the temperatures creep above freezing during the day, and dip back down below freezing at night that sap is harvested and then concentrated to become maple syrup. Traditionally this process, known a sugaring, would have included boiling the sap to reduce the water to sugar ratio to 66.9%. Today, modern production uses tubing, vacuum, reverse osmosis and high efficiency evaporators to turn sap in to syrup. It’s an interesting and delicious process!(info source: (www.riversidemaple.com)

Saint Paddy’s Day celebration was in full swing with the residents. Prestwick Chase celebrated the luck of the Irish with a Kegs & Eggs breakfast for the residents. The residents were awoken to Irish bagpipes, and then came down for the complimentary breakfast celebration. They were treated to Corn Beef Hash, Irish Bangers, Baileys Bread Pudding,Mashed Potato Pancakes. As they enjoyed their meal there was live music entertainment with an Irish Fiddler.
Our residents also received green carnations from the staff as they awoke in the morning to the lively music. It is always so much fun to see how they decorate their cabinet countertops outside their doors. The Irish decorations were very festive!
Thank you to all the staff and residents who came out to participate in the celebration of Saint Paddy’s Day. We wish you all the best from our family to yours on this Saint Patricks Day!
February Fling 2018 was a great hit. What is the best way to spend a day in late February? How about an outside party! We had a great 65 degree day and decided to host a surprise pizza party. The owner of the property fired up the outdoor stone pizza oven and had our chefs make up many different kinds of pizza for our residents. They had sea food pizza with shrimp, Swedish meatball, traditional pepperoni, green pepper onion, mushroom and cheese. There was live entertainment and fire pits for residents to sit around while enjoying the lovely weather. Residents sipped on Arnold Palmer’s and relaxed outdoors. How can you beat a 65 degree day in February with drinks, oven fresh fired pizzas and live musical entertainment. Just one more way that separates Prestwick Chase from the rest, the ability with our own 4 Star Kitchen and Chefs to host such lovely complimentary party food functions for our resident family community. Thank you to the Management Staff, Chefs and our residents for having a great February Outdoor Fling!
