Hello, February!


January has officially come to a close and it's safe to say that 2023 is off to a great start. The last month was full of memorable events and activities — with everything from a pie eating contest to visits from furry friends. The fun truly never stops at a Merrill community!

If you love dogs as much as we do, you have got to check this out! Our community in San Diego, CA, Merrill Gardens at Bankers Hill, teamed up with the Frosted Faces Foundation. This non-profit organization helps senior dogs find their forever homes — it's pretty incredible! They stopped by with some of the pups and the residents got to give them tons of love and pets. From one senior to another, everyone had a great time!

Truewood by Merrill, New Bern (NC) had a very successful paint and sip event! Who doesn't enjoy sipping on their favorite beverage while letting the creative juices flow? We may be biased, but our residents are incredibly talented people!

Over in Utah, Truewood by Merrill, Taylorsville had a pie eating contest! You read that right — and you HAVE to check out these just doesn't get much better.

Sunshine Villa, A Merrill Gardens Community (CA), hosted their own furry friends for a pet therapy session! We're not sure who had more fun — the dogs or the residents!

And to top it all off, why not enjoy some wine and appetizers? Happy hour at Merrill Gardens at Tacoma (WA) is a big hit, especially when there's live music! Our residents always have a blast when there are beverages, snacks, and superb entertainment. 

We can't wait to see what our communities come up with in February - stay tuned!
