On Thursday, September 11, 2018, Brandywine Living at Longwood residents had the photo op of a lifetime when they were “arrested” by the Kennett Square Police during a First Responders “Thank You” Luncheon hosted by the community.
“The residents were really excited to be “arrested” by the police officer, especially since they didn’t actually commit a crime,” said Kristen Aran, Escapades Producer of Brandywine Living at Longwood.
Helen Gallagher, Brandywine Living at Longwood resident, exclaimed, “It was fun being arrested! I didn’t even do anything!”
The “Thank You” Luncheon featured an Italian style lunch that matched the community’s “Italian Family Mob” themed schedule of events and activities in celebration of National Assisted Living Week. Residents made Stromboli for the luncheon that also included vegetable pasta, meatballs, and salad.
First Responders went home with goodie bags assembled by Reflections memory care residents and filled with items to help them get through a hard day.
“We wanted to thank our first responders for everything they do each and every day and to let them know that we see and appreciate them for everything they do keep us safe,” said Kristen Aran, Escapades Producer of Brandywine Living at Longwood.
