PUTTING FINALS

Residents of Prestwick concluded the 2020 putting golf season. The group plays in pairs through out the summer competing for best teams with lowest score. This tournament is a great way for residents to meet other residents and simply enjoy the fresh air and sun. Was a beautiful day to hold the final day of the contest. Winners will be announced in soon and have their names added to our golfing plaque. We congratulate all the players on the close of another successful, fun filled season.

DOOR DECOR

Residents attended an art class to create beautiful wall art/door decor pieces. Always a joy to watch the creative concepts individuals come up with, that are truly unique to their personalities. The hour long class was packed! Having such a large space art room is a true blessing. Residents will often come in and do stenciling and stain glass projects. It was a fun day for all.

TRAVERS HATS SARATOGA

Well we all know this years race track season at Saratoga, is a very different one due to the virus. A group of residents however are not letting the virus curb their enthusiasm for the tradition of fancy track hats. Ladies gathered in the art room to create their own Travers Stake hats. They truly had a blast and their designs were so very vibrant and some for sure had the flare in full effect. Thank you to all those who participated in this fun activity!

FRESH MARKET/BLUEBERRY TIME

Farmers Market was invited back to Prestwick Chase to offer their products to our community. With it being a beautiful day we had residents out on bikes. Some stopped by to see the offering of fruits, vegetables and baked goods. With blueberries in full swing there were wonderful blueberry breads for the residents to select from. This activity does so much good for everyone involved that Prestwick Chase now has the farmers event as a regular once a week activity. Even staff now will go out to see what items are available to bring home to their families. Supporting local farmer families is simply a pure joy for our residents. GREAT JOB!!

DRIVE IN

Prestwick Chase celebrated Father’s Day weekend by hosting a Classic Car Drive In. Over 40 vehicles of all types and models were lined up for residents to view. Was a beautiful warm day to get out and look over these incredible vehicles. Owners and residents were treated to hamburgers, hotdogs and sausages with peppers during the mid day hours. Local media was present to film the days activities which received fantastic reviews.

Father’s Day itself was a special treat for the residents as fresh Maine lobster was flown in literally off the boat that morning and served for dinner Father’s Day at Prestwick Chase!! Talk about fresh catch, it can not get any fresher than that. Just one more example of why Prestwick Chase is often referred to as the “Cruise Ship on Land”. When we say we will go the extra mile for our family of residents, well you can bank on it, as our miles took us all the way to Maine to treat our community.

Thank you to all the car owners who made this past weekend a great day of fun for our community. We would also like to thank all the local media who came out to show that even during challenging times our residents are still living the dream. Lastly we would like to thank the pilots who made the fresh lobster event possible and all the staff who put in hours of work on the weekend to make this Father’s Day one to remember.
