Question: What is something you always liked to do when you were younger?
Answer: “If anybody would ever say ‘Let’s go out and do some shooting,’ I would say ‘Yeah! Okay! I’ll get my gun and we’re gone!’ I was an outdoorsman. I hunted pigeons, rabbits, squirrels, snakes…anything! Pow pow! I loved to shoot from the day I was born. I started with my dad. And I’ve been hunting all over the world. I’ve been to South America, Bolivia, all over the United States and Canada. I’ve been all over. I’m 90 years old and I’ve been around! But, my wife said ‘Quit’ about two years ago, so I quit. I mostly shot birds. ‘If it flies, it dies.’ But I’m worn out, so I don’t get to the outdoors very much.” – Clifford L. Goetz

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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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!
