Resident Fashion Show in Westbury

Westbury held their Annual Resident Fashion Show this week! Here in Westbury, we have been hosting a Resident Fashion Show since the first year our community opened. Laverne on Wheels, a local vendor, brings all of her best boutique clothing for the residents to model. As they walk down the runway with their escorts, Laverne speaks about the different articles being shown off. Every year it is not just a fun event for those in the audience, but it is an occasion where the residents walking in the show get to dress up and feel like real models!

Resident Outing to Yankee Stadium

We had such a great time at the Yankee game this week! Residents from a few of our communities spent the afternoon at Yankee Stadium and enjoyed the beautiful weather, an exciting game, and of course, no baseball game is complete without a hot dog or chicken fingers with a nice cold beer. What made it even better was the Yankees winning with a walk-off home run. Thank you to the New York Yankees for showing us a great time and giving us a shout out on the message board!

Margarita Mixer in Jericho

Residents from our Jericho, Westbury and Garden City communities got together this week at The Bristal at Jericho for a Margarita Mixer! We enjoyed perfect summer mocktails, music, dancing and light hors d’oeuvres. We had a great time mingling with residents from our neighboring communities!

Valentine’s Day in Westbury

Here in Westbury, we were certainly feeling the love this Valentine’s Day. Students from Birch Elementary School came for a special Valentine’s Day visit. The students, all dressed in red and pink, sang our favorite love songs, and stayed after to do a craft with us. Everyone was smiling from ear to ear as they worked together to create these love-filled crafts on this love-filled day!

Winter Fun in Westbury

It may be cold outside but we are having a great time keeping warm and busy indoors here in Westbury! The Bristal Helping Hands have been getting together every Wednesday, knitting and crocheting. They’ve been working so hard that we got enough blankets and scarves together to donate to the Bethany House, a local homeless shelter for women and children. When we are not hard at work making blankets and scarves for those in need, one of our favorite pass times is enjoying a nice hot cup of hot cocoa in the bistro! It may sound crazy, but we don’t mind the winter here at The Bristal at Westbury!

Holiday Party in Westbury

We had a great time at our holiday party, here in Westbury. We spent the evening eating a beautiful meal and singing and dancing along to live music. By the time we were done eating, almost everyone was up and dancing! It was a beautiful way to celebrate the holidays with our friends here at The Bristal at Westbury!

Veterans Day in Westbury

Here in Westbury, we had a very special Veterans Day. We were honored to have servicemen come and present our Veterans with pins. Students from Merrick High School also came for a visit to spend some time with all of the honorable men and women who have served our country. In addition to the pleasant company, we were touched by a live bag pip performance and refreshments to follow. From The Bristal at Westbury, thank you to all of our Veterans for all that you have done, and continue to do for our country!


Fourth of July in Westbury

We had so much fun celebrating the Fourth of July here in Westbury. The day began with entertainment by the Bay City Ramblers, where everyone was up and dancing in their best red, white, and blue apparel. After, we enjoyed an all American BBQ lunch, followed by classic red, white, and blue Italian ices for dessert. Our Independence Day would not have been complete, though, without a patriotic sing along, so we did just that. It was another amazing summer day here in Westbury!

Mother’s Day Tea Party in Westbury

Here in Westbury, we enjoyed a beautiful Mother’s Day Tea Party to celebrate all of the amazing moms living in our community! Everyone certainly felt the love as they entered the perfectly decorated room. Family and friends joined us for finger foods, an assortment of teas, and music. Thank you to all who joined us, but most importantly thank you to all of the mothers who have dedicated their lives to their children!
