Residents attend Yo-Yo Ma Concert

Residents of Prestwick attended a top notch musical performance by renown American French cellist Yo-Yo Ma.  Being so close to SPAC (Saratoga Performing Arts Center) gives our resident community the opportunity to attend fantastic shows.  This truly was a special night to see such talent.  The weather was perfect for the outing. Thank you to Belinda, Prestwick Chase’s Activities Dir. for being able to book this event and offer such a class act for the residents to enjoy!

Bees of Prestwick Chase

Bees of Prestwick Chase

For the first time this year and since their relocation to Prestwick Chase, the bees have produced honey for collection. Gallons of raw spring flow honey was removed from our hives. We also removed the honey comb wax during this process. Not only did our residents get to sample the sweet honey with home made biscuits but they also met in the art room to make lotion bars out of the bees wax. It was much fun for everyone and exciting to see what our hives can produce.

NRA Skeet Shoot Contest

Prestwick Chase had local NRA Chapter Gun Club come out to our location and set up an event for our residents. The residents were able to enjoy a video projection simulation in which they used a replica rifle/shotgun to shoot targets with laser beams on a screen that depicted different nature landscapes.
The technology offers people a chance to do skeet shoot or simulated duck hunts. The nice part about this technology is no animals are actually hurt, no real rounds are fired, yet participants get the feel of what it would be like to shoot at skeet targets or simulated species of fowl.
In the contest 13 residents competed to see who was the best shot. With both men and women competing together it was much fun to see how accurate they would be. The top winners were Ed Peticolas, and runner up Bob Wemett. Both won gift certificates for dining at local restaurants in the area.
The volunteers from the NRA/Gun Club were great and also helped provide gun safety education, proper shooting stances, and assisted the residents with their practice shoots. Thank you to all the staff and residents for joining in this unique event. We look forward to another possible contest in the Fall.
