Fettuccine Anniversary LunchSeptember 26, 2017 | Chateau Brickyard
Last October, our resident Veronica B. was getting ready to celebrate her wedding anniversary! Her husband Gordon didn't live with her here at Chateau Brickyard. He had Alzheimer's and lived at the VA Hospital. When we heard that their anniversary was coming up, we knew that we had to do something special for these lovebirds!
The Chateau Brickyard staff contacted the VA Hospital and arranged to have Veronica's husband Gordon come to Chateau Brickyard for a wedding lunch! We took Veronica to pick Gordon up from the VA and brought him back to Chateau Brickyard. This was extremely special because it was the first time Veronica was able to spend time with her husband outside of the VA Hospital.
We served these lovebirds a wonderful lunch featuring Fettuccine Alfredo. Yum! They told us the story of how they met (they met through a mutual friend, and both Veronica and Gordon said it was love at first sight!). Veronica and Gordon exchanged anniversary cards, enjoyed their delicious food, and drank champagne. It was such a sweet sentimental and romantic WOW! Moment and we were so happy to be able to treat these two on their very special day.
Update: Unfortunately, Veronica's husband Gordon passed away recently. Our hearts go out to Gordon, Veronica, and their families. We feel so honored to have been able to organize this beautiful anniversary lunch and send all of our prayers.
