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.


A culinary event, designed by the culinary department, is presented one night a month, usually during the third week unless interrupted by holidays.  In the past the department has hosted Pennsylvania Dutch Night, Italian Night or Mediterranean Fare. On holidays such as the Fourth of July or Labor Day special buffets are presented with picnic fare.
