Question: If you could do one thing this week, what would it be?
Answer: “One thing this week? I’d like to go to Florida. I’d go fishing, sit around and have my Manhattan in the evening by the pool. We used to own a home in Florida and we went every winter. But my wife decided we should sell that property and we have a very democratic marriage. We vote on everything and she gets two votes and I forgot to vote ‘me, myself and I’ because I could have had three votes and outvoted her. We still go to Florida every once in a while. We went the year before last. When we lived there, we had some very good friends that lived just across the street from us and were just constantly together. They moved back to England where they’re from originally and we’re going back to Florida this year and so are those friends and we’re going to see them for five or six days, which should be great.” – Bill Tate, resident Friendship Village Sunset Hills

The above photo and text are part of a year-long project we call We Are Friendship Village. We are posting these photos and brief interviews to our website’s blog section every day as we talk with residents at Friendship Village Chesterfield and Friendship Village Sunset Hills. The idea is to give a short introduction to the residents who make up our wonderful senior living communities and give you a peek at something you might not know about them!
At this year’s end, we will publish A BOOK featuring all the great residents who participated. AND PARTICIPANTS get A FREE COPY OF THE BOOK! During this year, we will also be sharing these photos and stories on Facebook and other social media such as Instagram, so look for them and please follow the hashtag #WeAreFriendshipVillage to stay current with the project!
We think it’s a great chance to share a bit about who we are! Residents’ participation takes less than ten minutes, so it won’t take much time to be a part of it and we think everyone will enjoy getting to know their neighbors and friends a little bit better!
If interested in participating (or know someone else who might be), feel free to give us a call at (314) 270-7837 or email at [email protected] or drop by the marketing suites in Sunset Hills or Chesterfield. We have 365 of these to do over the course of the year, so everyone is welcome!
We look forward to seeing you as we get to share insights about the senior living residents who are making our Friendship Village retirement communities so great!
