Heartwarming WOW! Moments of FallDecember 03, 2018
This has been such an amazing season at Blue Harbor Senior Living! We’ve enjoyed so many heartwarming WOW! Moments, amazing events, and new friendships. Let’s highlight a few amazing WOW! Moments from our senior communities across the country. Read on for all the heartwarming details.
Stu Plays the Piano
We love this feature from our Eugene, OR-based community, Sheldon Park Senior Living. Resident Stu moved to Sheldon Park a little over a year ago. He loves music and has a piano in his Sheldon Park apartment that he loves to play.
The True Blue team at Sheldon Park wanted to honor Stu for his musical talents. So, they invited a group of musicians to join Stu for a performance: female vocalist Donna Courtell, bassist Hamilton Mays, and Stu’s son Doug on drums! It was an absolutely amazing performance that everyone enjoyed, especially Stu’s family! Following the concert, everyone enjoyed an amazing Italian dinner.
Time to Fly Again
One of our amazing California-based residents living at Sunshine Villa Senior Living, Ebe, used to fly planes. In fact, Ebe used to extinguish small fires while flying a plane. Ebe had always told the team incredible stories about her love of flying, so the True Blue team decided to plan something special for her! That’s right; we took Ebe flying again!
Ebe flew a special single engine canopy glider hybrid plane up the Santa Cruz and Monterey Bay coast. At one point, the pilot let Ebe take over and fly, as he was a licensed plane instructor. What an amazing adventure! Ebe was so happy to be up in the air again, and said, “It was a great experience to see the ocean and Sunshine Villa from a different perspective in the air!”.
Meet Marnee, the matriarch of Raintree Terrace Senior Living! She certainly doesn’t look 100 years old, but sure enough, on November 3rd, Marnee celebrated her 100th birthday! To celebrate, the Raintree Terrace team planned a HUGE party for Marnee. She mentioned to the team that she hadn’t seen some of her family in awhile, so it absolutely moved her to have them attend her big party.
Calhoun’s Restaurant catered the special event. There were three types of cake, a picture slideshow for all to see, and even a special song sung for Marnee. Marnee couldn’t stop telling people how wonderful her birthday was. What an amazing day!
