Asbury Solomons recently held its first Waterfront Celebration, taking advantage of our retirement community’s beautiful location on the Patuxent River.
Our ‘Yacht Club’, made up of kayaks and canoes, afforded everyone a fun and fit variety of water-based wellness opportunities, camera-worthy moments and lots and lots of laughter. (See photos below.)
Director of Wellness, Dennis Poremski and resident Herb Ries enjoyed paddle boarding, while Director of Pastoral Care, Rev. Charles Harrell got into a kayak for the very first time in his life.
Tahleen Nabors, a water enthusiast who is a frequent user of Asbury Solomons’ indoor pool, tried her hand at paddle boarding. “I got to stand on the paddleboard, but only for a brief, shining moment,” she laughs. “Then I fell into the Patuxent! It was so much fun!” (Learn more about Tahleen in her article Lifelong Passion)
The event ended with a sunset cruise to the Governor Thomas Johnson bridge in Solomons Island.
This year’s Waterfront Celebration was a great embodiment of Asbury’s Anticipate More vision to redefine the expectations of aging. We know many seniors are drawn to our Calvert County continuing care retirement community because of our waterfront location and views. It was great to see so many people having fun in the water. We can’t wait to see what residents and the Wellness team members come up with for next year!
