It's a Total Eclipse of Our Heart!


Unless you've been in the dark (ha ha), you know the solar eclipse was going to be a big deal!  So did the gang from our Ballard community in Seattle!

We knew there were some shady glasses out there for the 2017 solar eclipse viewing and we wanted to be sure, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that our residents could view it safely. So we had the compliant solar eclipse glasses at the ready!  At our Campbell, CA community they were also enjoying Mimosas to celebrate the eclipse.

With supplies in hand residents at our communities in the path of the eclipse and the team at the Seattle office were ready for some prime solar eclipse viewing!

Our residents have seen so many amazing things in their lives - now they can add one more to the list!

Even if they could not see it in the sky, residents got the chance to watch it on the big screen.  

It may not have been totality but we thought it was totally awesome!
