State Fair Celebration

September 6th, 2017

On Wednesday, August 30th the tenants at Oak Park Senior Living and Villas of Oak Park had a State Fair Celebration, and they didn’t even have to leave the building. The day started with tenants showing off their talents in our “State Fair Exhibit”. We had entrees from all areas of our campus, and as you can see from the pictures, we have some very talented people calling Oak Park Senior Living and Villas of Oak Park their home. In the afternoon we had our own version of the “Grandstand Entertainment” with the husband and wife team of Amy and Adams. Of course, no State Fair Celebration would be complete without FOOD. Tenants sampled corn dogs, mini donuts, deep fried pickles and cheese curds made by our talented chef and his staff. The tenants all agreed that the day was a success and are already talking about what they want to enter in next years fair!
