Mother’s Day at Cascades Verdae
Our community continues to find ways to create joyous noise for Members and families despite the current COVID-19 visitor restrictions. On Mother’s Day, our community planned a drive-by Mother’s Day Parade to connect our Members and their families. For the next few months, holiday celebrations are going to look different than normal, but finding new and unique ways to celebrate the upcoming holidays is the goal of Social Director, Ed Smith.
Mother’s Day is spent with loved ones celebrating the lovely ladies who we call “Mom”. Our team at Cascades Verdae called on families and loved ones to join in on a Mother’s Day Parade. The parade would snake through the community, greeting everyone on their front porches, balconies, and on the sidewalks to ensure social distancing. We welcomed 80 decorated vehicles that were filled with families who were ready to celebrate and cheer on those special to them who reside in our community. It was an emotional experience for those who have been separated from their loved ones over the last few months, with so many beautiful reunion smiles and waves. “Providing an opportunity to bring our Members together with their families while keeping everyone safe was a privilege,” said Executive Director, Cory Hoots. In addition to the parade, each Member was delivered a beautiful flower, delicious sweet treat, and a card from our team members.
During the COVID-10 pandemic, our Members at Cascades Verdae have experienced a variety of one-on-one social and wellness activities as well as physically distanced small group events. Our Members are accustomed to a vibrant lifestyle where they enjoy happy hour with friends, grand galas, local outings, signature experiences, and much more. While times have changed, there’s still vibrance being found within the walls of our community each day and we’re looking forward to resuming our favorite events and reuniting with loved ones.
