The Barbie Movie

What is it about the Barbie Movie that is creating so much attention?

Ok.  So we clearly had a lot of fun showing the Barbie Movie in Rayburn Hall on Friday.  The pre-party was a hoot!  The energy our residents brought to the event was palpable.

It's a fun movie, but since I'm blogging on a website for a Senior Community, I thought I might dig deeper and my attention went to the bench scene.  Academy award winning, fashion designer, Ann Roth, meets Barbie on a bench where Barbie looks at this elderly woman and says, "you're beautiful," and Ann Roth responds, "I know it."  There it is!!!  Women talking to each other through generations.  Barbie's decision to leave Barbieland and embrace the discomforts of the human experience and to see beauty in aging are some of the themes in the movie.  

There was magic in the air on friday as we drank pink cocktails, ate pink popcorn, and enjoyed each other as modern women living in challenging times.

Reader’s Theater performed by The Players of Ontario County Arts Council put on a Spooktacular show last Sunday.

We were honored to welcome the group back for a second time and the audience was not disappointed! 

Our residents and members of the public enjoyed listening to the eerie tales and had a chance to win a selection of raffle prizes.

Funds raised support the OCAC scholarship and grant programs.  We look forward to hosting more great shows in the future.

It was a beautiful evening, August 11th, for FunDay Friday as residents of Ferris Hills and Clark Meadows enjoyed a solo serenade by one of the Elderly Brothers, and Ferris Resident, Gabe Cinquegrana.  The music, all familiar to the 35+ people in attendance, lasted for 1 hour and brought back many memories.

Breakfast Fundraiser for Light Hill Hospice

Breakfast Fundraiser for Light Hill Hospice

With over 100 people fed and $1,450 raised it was a great morning on Friday when people joined Ferris Hills and Clark Meadows to show support for the wonderful Light Hill Hospice.  Our raspberry pancakes, eggs, sausage, bacon and home fries made the perfect breakfast for the fundraiser. 

A special ‘thank you’ to Michele Chiaverini, Administrative Assistant, for putting together a lovely gift basket to raffle off and to resident, Joan Szabla for crocheting prayer shawls to hand out as favors.

Light Hill Hospice provides loving, compassionate, specialized care for those who are terminally ill and for their families and loved ones.  With a 2 bedroom house in Canandaigua their primary focus is to ensure the richest possible experience for residents and their loved ones as they approach the final stages of life.  We were honored to host this event for such a worthy cause.
