Question: Do you miss anything about working?
Answer: “Probably the people I worked with. That’s about it. I’m so busy outside of here (Friendship Village). My time at Barnes (Jewish Hospital) is very important to me. I do a lot of volunteering. What I get out of volunteering is being involved and helping others. I’ve been privileged. I’ve been blessed. I like to do things because I like to do them…not to be recognized even though I was Catholic Man of the Year two years ago for St. Louis.”- Charles Scherrer, resident Friendship Village Sunset Hills

The above photo and text are part of our new year-long project we’re calling We Are Friendship Village. We are posting these photos and 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 snapshot 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 year’s end, we will publish A BOOK featuring all the great residents who participated. During this year, we will also be sharing these photos and text on Facebook and other social media such as Instagram, so look for them and please follow the hashtag #WeAreFriendshipVillage to stay up to date!
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 bit better!
If you are 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 meeting with you as we get to share about the senior living residents who are making our Friendship Village retirement communities so wonderful!
