The second Tuesday of each month is designated as a birthday celebration for all residents born in that month. Invitations are extended to those residents for a preliminary gathering, usually in the Versailles Room, at which time tickets are distributed for chances on a bouquet of flowers. Hors d’oeuvres and non-alcoholic drinks are served and each birthday celebrant is given a balloon to decorate his or her table. Photographs are taken by a resident photographer and displayed in the lower lounge and then distributed at a later date to the resident.
