Here in Garden City, our first annual Memorial Day BBQ was quite the success! We enjoyed all the BBQ classics like burgers, hot dogs, ribs, chicken and corn – of course followed by a delicious spread of desserts. Residents were invited to dine outside in the courtyard to enjoy the beautiful weather, and families joined us for a game of corn hole followed by live musical entertainment. Although Memorial Day marks the unofficial start of summer, we never forget to wear our red white and blue to honor all of the men and women who have served our country.
Here in East Meadow, we had a great time celebrating prom season with students from Kellenberg Middle School. Everyone dressed in their best attire for an evening filled with dancing, laughter, and a beautiful spread of desserts. We even crowned the prom king and queen!
Here in Englewood we are keeping very busy enjoying our first spring in our new home. We have done everything from simply enjoying the sunshine in the courtyard, to painting to Mozart and enjoying chef’s demonstrations in the bistro grille. One of our favorites though – ice cream sundae socials. We are so excited to see what this summer has in store for us!
The residents at Massapequa stepped into the future today with a demonstration of robots by the students and advisers from Walt Whitman High School Robotics Club. They brought in two robots, Bertha and Master Yogurt, and explained how the students – ranging from 14-17 years old – created the plan, designed and built each feature of the robots. We also met the young man who coded the robots to the computer. Some of our residents even got to drive the robots! We truly admired the ingenuity of these students and thank them for coming and sharing their creations!
On May 11th, all of the mothers, grandmothers, and great grandmothers were honored at The Bristal at Holtsville’s Annual Mother’s Day Tea Party! We enjoyed tea, crumpets, finger sandwiches, and desserts as pianist JK Hodge performed live. To all of our mothers, thank you for your constant love & care!
Here in West Babylon we had a great time celebrating Cinco de Mayo. The fiesta featured a taco bar, live music, and mocktails. We also spent some time learning about the history of Cinco de Mayo and where the day began. Overall, it was a vibrant day spent with good friends!
Here in Jericho, we had a great time celebrating the Kentucky Derby! We bet on our “horses,” baked bourbon blondies, and sipped on homemade mocktail mint juleps – all while wearing our finest Derby hats. It was a beautiful day at the races, all in the comfort of our own home!
We are having a great time celebrating spring here in East Meadow! We had a casino day for all of our card players, a Kentucky Derby celebration where we voted for the best big hats, and started working on our garden. In addition, a new shuffle board has brought us together for a little healthy competition while painting class has remained one of our favorite calming activities. We have kept so busy this spring, we cannot wait to see what the summer has in store!
Here in Woodcliff Lake we had a special Easter Brunch with our friends and families. We indulged in a beautiful breakfast buffet complete with a waffle station, had an egg hunt for the grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and then took pictures with the special guest – the Easter Bunny!
Here in West Babylon, The Bristal Helping Hands got together to build Easter baskets to donate to our local homeless shelter! It makes us so happy to be able to give back during the holidays!

On Tuesday, April 2nd, The Bristal at Massapequa spent the evening at the Farmingdale Library to celebrate the art work made by our residents.

We invite you to stop by to see the beautiful works of art by our talented residents!
Here in East Northport we had a great time getting silly on April Fools Day! We all wore our craziest hats and shared our best April Fools jokes and one-liners. It was an afternoon filled with a lot of laughs!

This month in Jericho, LIU Post presented The Teddy Roosevelt Show – Live! Residents enjoyed the presentation by actor and historian, Joe Wiegand, as he portrayed the 26th president of the United States. The live performance left us with a smile and some history. Thank you to LIU Post’s Theodore Roosevelt Institute at Hutton House for putting on such a great show!
