Senior Olympics at Chesapeake Shores

 

 

 

 

 

Chesapeake Shores held its 3rd Annual Senior Olympics Event! Originally scheduled for June 4th, we were rained out and had to move it to June 9th. A total of nine facilities came from around the area to compete in the event.

Every year, more and more teams attend and people from the community come to assist and volunteer. It was our largest crowd to date! Residents, staff, families and volunteers were all able to compete in and watch the events while our DJ and band, Harmonies of Faith, played great music. We served popcorn and cotton candy to our guests, and we even brought a photo booth!

It was great to see all the facilities and community organizations come together and have a great time. Many memories were made, and the residents are already planning for next year!

Gardening Club Update

 

 

 

 

 

Our garden has come a long way! With the help of our Dietary Director Sandy, this barren courtyard has grown full with flowers, fruits and vegetables!
