Last week, April 22-27, Heritage Woods of Flora celebrated Supportive Living Week.
Operating under the Illinois Supportive Living Program, Heritage Woods provides assisted lifestyle services affordable for seniors 65 and older of all income levels.
The week’s celebration began with a Gospel Show by Scott Wattles. Four years ago, Scott and his Blue Suede Crew performed at Heritage Woods especially for his grandmother, Jeanette Wattles, who was a resident at Heritage Woods at that time. This year on Sunday, April 22, Scott began his Gospel Show dedicating the performance to his late grandmother. The Crew’s show is amazing and definitely a must see; however, Scott’s Gospel Show is especially tender and poignant. His faith in and love for God is absolutely apparent.
On Monday, April 23, Heritage Woods’ residents and staff launched bunches of balloons in recognition of Supportive Living Week.
On Tuesday, April 24, Heritage Woods honored area Emergency and Senior Services at a special appreciation lunch. On Wednesday, April 25, Heritage Woods held an all day Open House with a free pancake and sausage breakfast from 7-9am and an ice cream sundae bar from 2-3pm. The celebration ended on Friday, April 27 with a Classic Car Show attended by members of the Clay County Cruisers and the Wayne County Misfits car clubs. Drivers and residents enjoyed delicious grilled hot dogs, chips, slaw, funnel cakes and lemon shake-ups in honor of the classic event.
Heritage Woods wants to thank everyone who participated in our celebration of Supportive Living Week, but more than that we want to thank everyone in the area who supports our community on a regular basis. Thank you Clay County and beyond!!
