Bridgeport Place welcomed 20 guests to the Spring 2010 AARP Driver Safety Class, which is an eight-hour course spanning two days’ time, and is geared toward drivers who are 50+. The class was taught by Merrie Sullivan, certified instructor, who is already scheduled to return again September 24 & 25 for another session. The Suburban Times graciously carried the announcement about the Spring 2010 Class. Drivers who complete the course receive a certificate that can be utilized for a discount on their auto insurance premiums. The class members were treated to coffee and pastries each morning and a complimentary lunch buffet each of the days. They expressed not only their appreciation for the use of facility as a meeting place for the class, but were also pleased by the hospitality and warmth of the staff and residents who welcomed them in, and the range of amenities. Some of the comments they penned included “Kudos to the chef!” … “This is a very warm and friendly facility. It’s like a country club. Thank you for the wonderful meals and snacks” … “The two meals broke my diet, but it was worth it” … “What could have been a grind turned into a great experience thanks to your hospitality and generous buffet. Have talked to some residents and they are so positive and happy here.” More than half of those who attended the class requested a tour of Bridgeport Place.
