Happy Valentine’s Day

Feb 13, 2019

Love is in the Air 

Our staff has put together a calendar of activities and culinary delights to allow our residents to celebrate in whatever way suits them best. 

  • Kicking off the day in our beautifully renovated Great Room, Tina will lead our Valentine Social, where special memories and sweet treats will be shared.
  • Lovely themed decorations make our dining room festive. Lunch will feature Chef Mike’s Valentine’s Hot Chocolate, a resident favorite, as well as a choice of rack of lamb or salmon. 
  • Bob LaValley will be back by popular demand with song and dance in the Great Room.
  • The day wraps up with two movies in the evening: The Best of Me, a romantic drama starring James Marsden and Michelle Monaghan, and Annie Hall, the classic romantic drama starring Diane Keaton and Woody Allen.
