Merrill Gardens Gives Back to the Community

We want to congratulate the warm hearts and giving spirit of Merrill Gardens of First Hill, Willow Glen and The Patrician. These three communities all participated in events to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association.

First Hill raised close to $5000 through their fundraising and participation in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s in Seattle, while the folks from The Patrician hit the streets of San Diego. At the same time, Willow Glen hosted their own fundraising event. It was all part of Merrill Gives Back Month. Great job guys!

There are too many great photos for one blog post, so make sure to check out the photo albums on our Facebook Page.

Game On At Gilroy and Willow Glen!

Levi’s Stadium is a brand new $1 Billion palace located in Santa Clara. It’s the shiny new home of the San Francisco 49’ers, and will host a number of other professional and collegiate sporting events.

The folks from Willow Glen and Gilroy called an audible one afternoon and headed out to Santa Clara, where they received a little tour of the new stadium. We think which part they liked the best 🙂

Getting Into the Swing of Summer

We often talk about how much fun the residents of Merrill Gardens are. But we can’t forget about the other people who spend time in the communities, making sure everyone has a smile on their face.

We love that the teams that support each Merrill Gardens community are as active, fun, lively and entertaining as the people who live there. If you don’t believe us, check out this spontaneous softball game that arose between the staffs at the Merrill Gardens in Village Green and Willow Glen.

We just had to throw some music between the highlights. If you are going to choreograph those kind of sophisticated dance moves, you deserve your own music video. Enjoy!

Active Living Week at Willow Glen and Green Valley

The Willow Glen community in San Jose, California and the Green Valley Ranch community in Henderson, Nevada, had a ton going on for Active Living Week! Residents and guests were able to attend a health fair in their courtyard, test their gaming skills with Wii Bowling and Golf and try something new with floral design, painting and exercise classes. Topped off with fancy fresh fruit carvings and other healthy snacks!

A Feast at Merrill Gardens at Willow Glen

Do we know how to throw a party or what? Check out the amazing breakfast prepared by Willow Glen Chef Enrique and his team for a recent professionals meeting. Intricate fruit carvings, a chocolate table, eggs benedict, omelets and lots of pastries. What a fun way to start the day! It’s making us hungry just thinking about it!
