Holiday Celebrations are in full swing at Prestwick Chase. Residents were treated to a visit from Santa. A new 13 foot artificial tree was purchased for the residents to gather and decorate. We also celebrated the lighting of the first candle of the Menorah. Residents and their families enjoyed a night of holiday celebrations. There was eggnog, hot coco, cookies of all kinds and latkes to be tried. Residents enjoyed getting to sit on Santa’s lap and whisper their wishes. Piano holiday songs were played and sung. History was spoken of on the tradition of the lighting of the Menorah. And for one very lucky resident, Santa stopped in to wish him a wonderful Birthday at his dinner party. Surrounded by friends and family it was truly a heart felt moment, as his eyes lighted up at the sight of this towering holly jolly figure next to him. Thank you to all the staff, chefs, friends and family who came out to Prestwick Chase to enjoy this time honored tradition.
Prestwick Chase was honored to host the year end celebration for A.L.L. at the High Rock Bar & Lounge, at Prestwick Chase. The attendees enjoyed great food, live music and a night of simply relaxing. We have many residents who are members of the Academy for Lifelong Learning. This organization is a wonderful asset to the area and Prestwick Chase Community of Residents. We look forward to our continued relationship with them in the coming new year.
Residents who participated in the golf putting tournament of 2018, gathered for a dinner celebration. There was an award ceremony in which a plaque was presented for this years champions. The golfers had their choice of Beef Tenderloin with 5 oz lobster tail, grilled Halibut, Chicken stuffed with cranberry or Farfelle Primavera with Snow Peas. Desserts were Creme Brulee or Salted Carmel Pumpkin Bread Pudding. It was a nice evening to relax and enjoy fellow golfers company.
Prestwick Chase participated in the Flavor Festival of 2018. The Management Team set up a booth and offered pork pulled sandwiches with apple slaw and a pickle on top. We did over 650 sandwiches and the general public loved them! We had a great time, people enjoyed our food and we had many people asking who Prestwick Chase is and what do you do. Thank you to all those who helped pull off this wonderful event.
Residents came out this weekend to take a hot air balloon ride high in the sky. The morning was filled with excitement and anticipation of a wonderful flight and viewing of the area. While the air balloons were being set up there was even people making bubbles with the children. This activity is always something fun for everyone across the generations. In the end there is just something about this activity that brings out the kid in us all and that clearly shows by the big smiles in the photos below.
