— Woodhaven Senior Community, G-5201 Woodhaven Court, celebrates its 21st Annual Fall Fest 11:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Sept. 11. The event, which sees up to 600 people in attendance, is hosted by the Dixner family for residents and their families and friends.
The theme for this year’s Fall Fest is a carnival theme, and activities include a raffle, giveaways, carnival games, face painting by McLaren Visiting Nurses, a visit by Leader Dogs for the Blind, strolling Shriner Clowns and the Country Clovers 4H Club. Patricia Ballentine, director of marketing, said that since the Fall Fest happened to fall on Sept. 11 this year, the event will include recognition of Woodhaven’s veterans and an Honor Guard Flags Ceremony and rifle volley by VFW Post 3087. Two highlights of the Fall Fest will be the singing of the National Anthem by vocalist Michael Moreno, and a balloon launch at 2 p.m.
“We also have will have a Sweet Treat bake sale, and all proceeds go to Woodhaven’s chapel, which is onsite,” Ballentine said. Books Are Fun, a company which offers quality books at a discount price, will be at the event and offering books for residents and attendees to purchase.
“We are hoping for good weather,” Ballentine said. For more information on the Fall Fest, call Woodhaven at 810-230- 1070 or visit www.woodhavensenior.com.
