Olympic Games at Canyon Lakes

Our communities all around The United States are staying fit! Last week, our residents at Canyon Lakes in Kennewick, WA hosted a day long Olympic games.

Throughout the day, we played a variety of games from croquet to shuffleboard. Not only did we play traditional games, but also a few rounds of Wii Bowling.

The games concluded with a screening of ‘Age of Champions’, a tale of inspiration and Olympic dreams. Before the screening, our residents told stories about their own Olympic hopes. Two of our residents, Roy & Corrine spoke to the group about their very own Olympic past. Roy and Corrie participated in The National Senior Olympics several years ago and they shared their experiences.

We have a blast staying fit with our communities. The gang at Canyon Lakes had a fun-filled day of fitness and good times!

Here are a few photos from the day:

Pat and Ruth Celebrate 72 Years

Two of our residents from Merrill Gardens at The University are celebrating a very special anniversary,  Pat and Ruth O’Neill have been married 72 year!

The couple met on a blind date after attending a wedding together. At the wedding Pat and Ruth were both paired up with different dates. Pat was originally set up with Ruth’s sister. A few days after the wedding, Pat called Ruth’s sister when she wasn’t home and asked for Ruth. They hit it off right away.

The couple dated six years before getting married in a small ceremony.

Ruth’s advice on marriage?  “You have to be patient and be able to laugh especially at yourself.  If I knew what the secret was I would bottle it and make a million dollars!”

Ruth and Pat have been living at The University community for one year.  They lived in this neighborhood for 50 years so they were excited to live in a familiar neighborhood with several familiar faces.  While The University was being built, the couple lived at our Northgate Seattle community.

Happy 72nd Anniversary Pat and Ruth. We wish you the best!
