Residents of Prestwick headed out for a nice day at the track to watch and wager on the horses. The temperatures were pleasant with a bit of cloud cover and by their smiles in the photos below they had a great time. This social outing is always a lot of fun and we enjoy so much taking the residents over to the track to be able to enjoy this historical past time linked to Saratoga. And yes we did have some winners but no one hit it big enough to buy one of the horses yet! ha, ha ,ha.
Residents took a day outing to Saratoga Springs Horse Museum. The guided tour gave the history of the famous Thoroughbred Race Track in Saratoga Springs. Our residents have the joy of living not far from the track and is a popular event to attend with friends and family members during summer. During the racing season residents can be dropped off and picked up by our shuttle services to go enjoy a day at the track!
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.
