How We’re Making The Holiday Season Special
It wouldn’t be the holiday season without special celebrations. So for the 7,000 residents of Westminster Communities of Florida, this year’s holiday celebrations will still be special, even while we and millions of Americans are practicing social distancing to avoid the spread of COVID-19.
Our Resident Experience teams have been hard at work coming up with amazing and delightful ways to celebrate the holidays, throughout the state. During the entire month and into the New Year, residents and team members alike are enjoying events to celebrate their faith and share in the joy of the season.
Here’s just a few of the fun ways our communities are celebrating the holidays this year:
- Hanukkah Celebrations: At Westminster Winter Park, we held a Hanukkah Party with a special service from the Jewish Pavilion. Over in St. Petersburg, Westminster Suncoast hosted a special Festival of Lights presentation.
- Family Fun: Residents of Westminster Towers, in Orlando, will enjoy “Pancakes and Pajamas,” our yearly Christmas Eve event, where residents are invited to wear their pajamas and enjoy homemade pancakes. In addition, they can spend their mornings playing games and winning raffles!
- Puzzles & Games: How about a game of “Family Feud” or live trivia? Westminster Suncoast, Westminster Oaks and Westminster Shores residents all have been challenging their minds with fun games themed around the different holidays this season.
- Creative Christmas: From Holiday potpourri sachet making at Westminster Manor to origami classes and Christmas card competitions, we’re getting creative this year. Residents enjoyed a zoom painting class where they made a whimsical snowman at Westminster Palms.
- Tasty Treats: Residents are happily full from all the seasonal snacks and specialty drinks this month. Westminster Woods on Julington Creek are delivering cups of hot cocoa with cookies and peppermint sticks to residents. While in Bradenton, Westminster Point Pleasant just hosted a Gingerbread House competition that is sure to make mouths water as they view the displayed winning houses.
- Ringing In The New Year: Every community will be celebrating a fresh start with the New Year. Westminster Winter Park will be hosting a dueling piano show with a champagne toast, and their neighbors at Westminster Towers are grilling up a New Years Eve cookout with music and dancing.
“Our Resident Experience Team has done an awesome job in making this holiday season amazing for all of the residents of Westminster Communities of Florida”, said Mario DeLuca, Vice President of Resident Experience. “It will be difficult for our residents to be away from their loved ones, but this year they will still be celebrating with their Westminster family.”
