Question: What’s something you started doing as a child that you’ve carried with you throughout your life?
Answer: “I’ve played golf all my life. I enjoy the game. I don’t play it well – I tell people I don’t play golf; I play at golf. I enjoy playing with my friends and my sons-in-law. Golfing is physical and gives you a sense of accomplishment, I think. All it takes is one good shot and you’re ready to come back the next day, even if you’ve had 40 or so bad shots. My dad got me started playing golf and at first, I just started out caddying for him. In fact, the clubs right here in this room are the ones my dad played with. He was an excellent golfer and my brothers are excellent golfers, so I got started playing at a very young age. The thing I like about golf is it’s you against you. The other thing I’ve always admired about golfers, too, is the honesty. It’s a gentleman’s game and if you cheat, you’re only cheating yourself.” – Bob Belline, resident Friendship Village Chesterfield

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@example.com 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!
