In September, Oakmont Northville worked with the Plymouth Community Council on Aging to participate in their wonderful Senior Fest Picnic – an annual event that area seniors look forward to every year.
This year the event happened to fall on the date of September 11th, and Northville Firemen were invited to attend the event to represent the heroes who saved many lives on that tragic day in 2001. As a thank you for all they do for our communities and their selfless sacrifices every day, Oakmont Northville was thrilled to be able to sponsor lunches for all of the firemen in attendance.
Public safety workers and volunteers are such an important part of Oakmont Northville and all of our Oakmont communities, and it was truly an honor to provide them with this special lunch.
Thank you to the Plymouth Community Council on Aging and all who made the wonderful Senior Fest event possible!
Introducing Oakie – the beautiful puppy who is well on his way to becoming a highly-trained Guardian Angels Medical Service Dog!
For our 2019-2020 Oakmont Cares charitable effort, Oakmont Senior Communities is again sponsoring the training and adoption of a Guardian Angels Medical Service Dog for a Michigan veteran in need. Specially trained to assist with the impacts and effects associated with military service, Guardian Angels Medical Service Dogs help those they serve with a variety of tasks and situations that arise during the activities of daily living.
Our beautiful dog this year is named Oakie – a name that won an Oakmont-wide naming contest held by residents and staff. It is sure to be instantly familiar to the pup who has affectionately been nicknamed Oakmont since birth and is now several months into his training.
Now more than six months into the fundraiser, things are going great. More than $7,000 of the $25,000 needed for Oakie’s adoption has already been raised by Oakmont residents, with other events, fundraisers, and programs planned throughout the rest of the year.
Oakie is the second Guardian Angels Medical Service Dog sponsored by Oakmont residents and staff via the Oakmont Cares program.
Each year, the Troy Historical Society at the Village makes the Halloween season truly special with their presentation of Scarecrow Row – a one-of-a-kind attraction at the Troy Historic Village.
For this spooky tradition, businesses, colleges, and local organizations design custom scarecrows for display at The Village and donate sponsorship funds with the goal of supporting the educational programs and visitor services provided by the Troy Historical Society at the Village.
This year, Oakmont Sterling has joined with 50+ other local businesses and organizations in submitting for display a custom-made scarecrow designed and created by our residents and Jodi C.- Oakmont Sterling’s activity director.
The theme of this colorful character is Our Residents are Our World, which goes to the heart of everything we do at Oakmont Sterling.
Scarecrow Row is open to visitors at the Troy Historic Village now through the end of October. For more information be sure to visit the Troy Historic Village Website and tag Oakmont Sterling (@OakmontSterling) on Facebook if you take any fun selfies.
