Bridgeport Place senior residents, their families, friends, and guests were treated to a Harvest Brunch, Sunday, November 15 that rivaled any holiday feast at the finest dining establishments in the area.
The dining services staff, headed by Cindy Fugate, prepared and served freshly roasted turkeys, spiral sliced ham, bountiful side dishes, salads, fresh fruits, melons, and pecan, pumpkin, and cherry pies. Champagne with orange juice Mimosas were also served.
Curtis High School honor students volunteered their time on Sunday and pitched in with their youthful energy to help the staff and ensure that the entire event went smoothly from start to finish.
There were two seating’s for the brunch, which always welcomes a crowd. Debbie Williams, branch manager of the University Place, Bank of America, provided Bridgeport Place with stanchions to help direct guests to and through the buffet line.
Pianist Roberta Daniels played an extraordinary repertoire of music all from memory and carried on a lively conversation, taking requests, without missing a beat.
The Harvest Brunch is an annual tradition at Bridgeport Place Retirement and Assisted Living, which opened in University Place, in 2001, and features amenities that include the Serendipity Spa, porter service, and more. Jaynie Jones, Community Relations Coordinator, describes Bridgeport Place as being similar to an all-inclusive resort and often says, “Now that’s Bridgeport … Living!”
