Our 140 acre campus is made of 11 different neighborhoods. Although we are all integrated as a large community of active adults, each neighborhood also carries a community of its own. One charming example of this is our Holladay Park neighborhood. This is a group of people who have fully embraced each of their neighbors as part of a larger family. They support each other in their many endeavors, such as personal appearances in on-campus club performances. Most recently, the group got involved in a whimsical affair involving flamingoes and croquet. In the words of a particular Holladay Park resident:
“We had a FABULOUS event here in Holladay Park. After one neighbor was “flamingoed” with many birds for his birthday, the flamingos started migrating to other yards. One neighbor made a big deal of it and so more and more flamingos, eggs, and other birds joined her “Bird Haven.” With each addition, she sent out emails full of humor and fun. She invited all to a Flamingo Croquet game….no rules, brooms for mallets, balls of all sorts, and prizes (flamingo eggs aka jelly beans) for those who could get from one end of the course to the other one way or another. The weather was perfect and it was a huge success bringing together 27 of us. – Linda”
Above all the wonderful things that come with life at Panorama is the true sense of community we all share. It’s spontaneous events like a neighborhood flamingo party that make Panorama so much more than a place to retire.
