Friendship Towers “Sweetheart Dance”

A Sweet Night for Residents

Residents and staff at Friendship Towers Assisted & Independent Living enjoyed a ‘night out’ at the 2022 Sweetheart Dance!

Don’t let the name fool you, it was not a couples only event! Many came out dressed in their best Valentine’s outfits to enjoy the good music and even better company.

“We love hosting these dances. You’d be surprised, but we’ve had a few residents tell us ‘this was the first time they’d been asked to a dance.’ Talk about a cup filler! There are new experiences to be had for older adults every day if we just give them opportunities,” commented Elise Hinchman, VP/Marketing & Development.

The Life Enrichment Team went over and above to decorate the space, hire a 3 piece ensemble, and set out a spread fit for a king…and queen!

A Royal Event

Ed Maggard and Betty Hurst were crowned 2022 Sweetheart King and Queen! Residents Ray and Sara relinquished their crowns from the Fall Senior Prom and were delighted to have the honor of crowning the new royals.

“You know what’s fun to watch? The residents are well past being shy or being a wallflower. If they like your dress, they’re going to tell you. Of course, they might tell you they don’t like your dress too! If they want to dance, they’re going to dance! They are out there making the most of their life and it inspires the staff for sure,” stated Angela Mullins, Director of Campus Life Enrichment.

God only knows how sweet it is to celebrate life and love with your friends. Watch for the smiles at the end…!

The residents are always have big events on the calendar to look forward to. Take a peek at the latest!
