Fathers' Day Grill-Out Shows Camaraderie

Primrose Father's Day Celebration

Primrose men celebrate Father’s Day

Bismarck Primrose
Steaks were grilled and served, along with corn and potato salad, in honor of the Fathers’ Day celebration which was held on Tuesday, June 22nd at the Bismarck Primrose.

All the male residents were invited and encouraged to bring guests, some of whom visited from as far away as Oregon! Highlights of the evening were fine dining, door prizes and great conversation.

The camaraderie between the honored fathers extended also to each others’ families — because the Bismarck Primrose is a close-knit retirement community, many of the men were just as happy to see their friends’ families as they were their own.

Primrose Administrator, Melanie Soupir, spoke a few words and thanked everyone for coming. Full stomachs, happy faces, familial greetings, and much enjoyment comprised the evening.

Zanesville Seniors Visit Rolling Hills of Amish Country

Primrose Seniors tour Amish Country

Zanesville, OH. Primrose residents enjoy an active lifestyle and travel to different locations. In April 2010, seniors boarded the Primrose bus and headed to the beautiful rolling hills of the Amish County (one of most popular visited areas in the Ohio area).

First stop was the Pearl Valley Cheese Company, home to an award-winning cheese, which is located in the beautiful rolling hills of Coshocton, Ohio, where a visit to the store is an experience the whole family will enjoy. It’s located about 35 minutes from Primrose, close to the Historic Roscoe Village. The residents got to watch the cheese-making process from the retail store viewing area and were able to sample different types of cheese.

Next stop, Walnut Creek, OH, which isn’t a city but a splendid countryside populated by countless farms. It’s a unique blend of a small village culture that is built on lasting values of honesty and integrity — the same qualities you’ll find in the products you buy, the foods you eat, the sights you observe, and the people you meet. The Primrose seniors felt right at home traveling throughout the Amish Country.

Walnut Creek is the home of Coblentz Chocolate Company, a candy store specializing in gourmet chocolates that nobody can refuse. These quality chocolates require aging and premium ingredients, both of which are abundant in Ohio’s Amish Country. The final stop in Walnut Creek was the Der Dutchman Restaurant, located in the center of the village. Many of the residents enjoyed lingering in the rocking chairs on the front porch and listening to the clip-clop of the horse and buggies passing by and catching a glimpse of daily life in the beautiful Amish farming valley, and the food was definitely good!

On returning home, the residents said they would enjoy the opportunity to go to the Amish Country again. Many hadn’t been there in a long time. Two couples who had recently returned from Florida to live in Ohio, said the trip to the Amish Country brought back fond memories. One resident makes several trips a year and was delighted that this time he had several friends to go along with him, all on one bus. This trip wouldn’t have been possible without bus driver Don and the Life Enrichment Coordinator Tammy — these two caring individuals provide traveling adventures for the Zanesville seniors.
