It may not OFFICIALLY be summer until June 21, but the summer event season at Concordia starts in a couple weeks! From now until the end of August, we have close to 20 events lined up either at our senior care locations or out in the community – and that doesn’t even include the multiple open houses we’ll soon be scheduling at Highpointe at Rebecca, the retirement community in Allison Park that we’re almost finished building.
We couldn’t possibly highlight every one of the many events today (we’d lose you halfway through!), but we picked some to showcase. For a complete list, click here to visit the Events & News page. And you really should check out the complete list… LOTS of great events!
