BELFAST — The Residence at Tall Pines, a Retirement and Assisted Living community, welcomed area seniors to the Senior Fun Fair on June 13 for a day of fun.
The Senior Fun Fair kicked off with music performed by local fiddler Julia Plumb and dance lessons compliments of Chrissy Fowler of Belfast Flying Shoes. Residents, volunteers, guests and staff flocked to the dance floor, where they enjoyed learning traditional dances.
“I think everyone really loved the dancing! The way Chrissy taught it made it really easy to learn so everyone could just relax and enjoy themselves. And Julia’s fiddling added an extra level of depth to the experience,” said Executive Director Matt Griswold.
Once the dancing concluded, everyone enjoyed a barbecue lunch with traditional fare including chicken which Chef Andrew smothered in The Residence Signature Sauce. He provided copies by request.
King Perogi performed their polka music on the balcony for everyone’s entertainment. Some participated in a game of corn-hole with the top three participants winning medals.
On top of all of the other festivities, raffle drawings were held at different points throughout the day with a variety of prizes. Two lucky winners received hair services by Sharon Merry at The Residence’s salon. Two other winners each got dinners for two in the Residence’s dining room. And one winner got the last prize, a fabulous cook’s gift bag filled with a variety of kitchen gadgets and topped off with a copy of Panache, The Resident Council cookbook. Panache is filled with recipes and tips from current and past residents and staff.
