Over 100 ice cream sundaes were piled high to the specification of our residents, who enjoyed their treats in the cool of the shaded patio umbrellas and indoors in the café. Live “sing-along” music (yes, you can sing and eat ice cream) by Mellow Fellows added ambiance and playfulness to the afternoon.
Next time we host Swing Masters, we’ll set up a bigger dance floor to accommodate all the couples. A big favorite around town, Swing Masters always comes through with very danceable and toe-tapable music.
Japan came to the Village by way of a delicious dinner, fit for an emperor and empress! Our own culinary team put on a breathtaking and memorable Japanese dinner, which was followed by an evening of authentic Japanese dancing. Beautiful dress and graceful moves haunted the room as we were mesmerized by the lovely dancers. Contact our Marketing Department to learn how you can experience this level of entertainment.
This past week we also attended an evening performance at Music Circus, “The Hunchback of Notre Dame”. That was our final Music Circus outing for the year, as we look forward to seeing the Sacramento Community Center’s production of “The Sound of Music.” If you’d like to go with us, contact our Marketing Department for possible trip openings.
