Question: What character trait do you think is most important to have?
Answer: “Integrity. It covers a wide range of things. It covers honesty. It covers everything. It’s like an umbrella. You’re more cautious of a person who doesn’t have integrity. It changes how you interact with them. I was a police man in my career and you run into all kinds of people, good and bad. A lot of bad people. And you just learn to judge people. I was a police man in St. Louis city for thirty years from 1962 and 1992 as a patrolman on the street and also doing traffic. I liked interacting with people and I tried to do some good.”- Ed Wood, 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 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!
