Question: What do you really NOT miss now that you live in Friendship Village?
Answer: “I don’t miss cleaning my house. I did all the cleaning and I used to be called Scrubby Dutch because I came from south St. Louis which was know for having a lot of scrubbing Dutch Germans. The Germans used to get out and even scrub their steps. And I didn’t scrub the steps, but my mother did! And I decided when I got older that I wasn’t going to scrub the steps. I took a hose and rinsed it off, but that was it.” – Rosemary Stolz, resident Friendship Village Sunset Hills

The above photo and text are part of a new project for 2020 we call We Are Friendship Village. We are posting these photos and short interviews of our fantastic residents to our website’s blog section every day as we talk with them at Friendship Village Chesterfield and Friendship Village Sunset Hills. The concept is to give a brief introduction to the residents who make up our wonderful senior living communities and give you a glimpse at something you might not know about them!
At this year’s end, we will publish A BOOK featuring all the residents who participated. AND PARTICIPANTS get A FREE COPY OF THE BOOK! During 2020, we will also be sharing these photos and stories on Facebook and other social media such as Instagram, so keep an eye out for them and please follow the hashtag #WeAreFriendshipVillage to stay up with the latest posts!
It’s been a great project so far and we think it’s a great chance to share a bit about who we are! Residents’ participation takes less than ten minutes, so it’s easy to be a part of it and we think everyone will enjoy getting to see their friends and neighbors!
If you’re interested in participating (or know someone else who might be), please 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 profiles to do over the course of the year, so everyone is welcome!
We look forward to seeing you!
