Hello Summer!

|

As we get more bright and sunny weather, we see so much more excitement from our residents and team members! Whether they are getting active inside or enjoying each other's company in the outdoors, we are anticipating quite the incredible summer of activities from our communities.

Recently, our Washington communities joined forces to create a super event! With a lot of planning and organization, they came together for a fantastic barbeque filled with delicious food, gorgeous water views, cornhole, ladder golf, and great friends!

Residents and team members enjoyed some cornhole under the sun.

Ladder golf was a big hit!

Two California communities found different ways to enjoy the heat! Residents in Lafayette grabbed their friends and broke out the Bocci balls, while residents in West Covina decided to stay inside and drink some refreshing beverages. I don't know about you, but we would love some of that watermelon right about now!

Bocci ball got a bit competitive as residents took to the grass.

In Port Charlotte (FL) residents have been enjoying weekly karaoke, but just recently started to dance along with the music! It's amazing to see how energy and excitement can spread through a community, as more and more residents have joined in on the fun.

Whether you're kicking back with some friends, playing games, or just dancing along to the music, we hope you are finding your own fun this summer!
