Hot Dog HarleyOctober 03, 2017 | Barkley Place
Originally from Connecticut Jackie Syrotchen has been with us at Barkley Place for about two years. She is one of our most fun-loving residents and is always open to adventure. When she moved to Florida to be closer to her daughter she recalled a fun story that she shared with nearly everyone at Barkley Place Senior Living.
Many years ago when Jackie was at a hot dog stand, she saw a man and woman pull up on a Harley-Davidson. She tells us it was the most gorgeous thing she had ever seen, and from that day forward she decided that she would one day ride a Harley-Davidson too. Her husband was not a motorcycle man, so her opportunity never came up. When the team at Barkley Place learned about this, we wanted to help make her dream come true.
The staff at Barkley Place organized a Harley-Davidson ride for Jackie. We asked her to come outside, and her jaw nearly fell to the floor when she saw the motorcycle. She got to dress the part of a real biker and was given a ride around town by a Harley pro. She tells us it was the time of her life, and we were glad to help turn Jackie's dream into a WOW! Moment.
