Members enjoy the leisure moments of just watching the cars go by or a garden in bloom; visiting with an icy lemonade or iced tea and sharing the memories of summers past. The summer is the long awaited time of year that goes by much too quickly and seems to stand slowly as the lazy days are here.
Things are easy to enjoy and as the porch fills and reminiscence takes hold, the summer breeze reminds us that all too soon the joy of just sitting and enjoying whatever goes by will be gone again, So we remind you to come sit and have a cold drink with us and enjoy every minute of the all too fleeting summertime.

October at Oak Crest
for decades fall has signified a transition at Oak Crest just as it has in many households.
We decorate and plan for festive parties
and hosting the kids for trick or treats.
Age is a great equalizer,
what many people don't realize is that age has it's rewards:
Being silly comes easier.
Expectations are not set in stone.
Memories are there to fall back on.
Accepting what is makes sense.
Joy is more meaningful.
Twilight is welcome.
Rest is a gift.
Life is now.

Happy Fathers Day
On Sunday families will take time out to honor FATHER. No matter what age of father or child, there holds special significance for the person whom we think of as our father. Not always biological. not always a relative, but that special man who has guided and held fast to the principles that represent strength.
Strength to lead and teach and most importantly to love us. To those who have never known a dad or grandfather, I am among you. But what I do know is the friendship of men who have been willing to step up and fill that void. So this Fathers Day take a moment to remember and say thanks to all who have taken on the mantel of fatherhood and embraced it's sacred responsibility.

Thanks to Steve Kranz
from the Pillars of Freedom Foundation
Normally veterans receive a flag at the time of their funeral, but it is this wonderful Pillars of Freedom Foundation organization's
mission to give Vets the chance to publicly receive that gift on Memorial Day. Oak Crest was honored to have the chance to show our own Vets how much their service was appreciated. Thanks to Steve and the folks at the Pillars of Freedom Foundation the program included many proud smiles and many beautiful flags. This is the way I remember Memorial Day being as a kid. Red, White and Blue (no sales) just preserving the honor of the men and women who not only gave the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms, but those who walk among us today, many times unidentified and unappreciated. This Memorial Day, our halls were filled with pride and Vets and their families all receiving "thanks" for some overdue and for others their simply cannot be too many "thank yous". The lawn flag display, also compliments of the Pillars of Freedom Foundation was in it's old glory with over 50 flags flying, proudly.
