Sharing Meaningful Activities and Special Events
At MorningStar of Sparks, our residents and staff work hand-in-hand to create a loving, warm community. Part of our family-like atmosphere comes from making memories and celebrating life’s special moments together. Each month our calendar is filled with daily activities as well as an array of special programs.
To help raise awareness for the memory-impaired, our community recently took part in the Alzheimer’s Association’s “Longest Day of the Year - Up with Hope, Up with Awareness, Up with Compassion” event. While the summer solstice in 2017 was officially June 20, we celebrated on June 21 with fundraising by way of a memorable music concert and yard sale. Another meaningful activity our community recently participated in was the Optimism Walk to support the American Parkinson Disease Association.
Another example of recent special events at MorningStar was our annual Luau! Residents wearing aloha shirts and leis enjoyed fresh Hawaiian cuisine in the courtyard transformed into a South Pacific getaway. Two dancers took us on a tour through the islands of Polynesia, teaching Assaad, our Executive Director, a thing or two about rhythm.
And who knew how much artistic talent was hiding in our community? Our second annual Resident Art Show was a huge success. The Dining Room was decorated with original watercolors and oil paintings: family portraits, stunning vistas and ingenious abstractions.
If carefree retirement years amid beautiful surroundings, resort-style amenities, and fun-filled and meaningful activities sound good, MorningStar of Sparks is the place for you. We encourage you to schedule a visit to our community to find out for yourself why our residents are proud to call it home.
