Touchmark at Mt. Bachlor Village Newsletter - July 2013

  1. 1. October 2011 | page 1 EVENT{FULL}Monthly updates from your {FULL} Life community TOUCHMARK AT MT. BACHELOR VILLAGE Issue 7, 2013 | page 1 Hearts fly high and stories take off at Pilot’s Lunch Bill McDonald, a Touchmark resident since 2004, must have inherited his love of flying from both of his parents. In 1928, Bill’s mother received her pilot’s license at 18. Bill’s parents met at the Rankin School of Flying in Portland, Oregon, which was one of the country’s few flight schools at the time. Bill continued his family’s flying legacy by flying for the U.S. Air Force and the Air National Guard. The McDonald family tradition of flying continues with Bill’s grandson, who started flying at 17 and has served four tours overseas as a pilot. Ever since Charles Lindbergh flew across the Atlantic Ocean in 1927, the dream of flying has inspired many, including some Touchmark residents. These aviators gathered for a pilot’s luncheon and shared photos and stories of their time in the sky. Bill McDonald remarked that the afternoon was a memorable gathering of eagles. Here are a few highlights: In 1945, Bill Handy flew the first and only all-black paratrooper battalion, called the Triple Nickels. He fearlessly flew these smoke jumpers over Oregon and California so the battalion would be well prepared for Japanese balloon bombs. Ed Fay was a combat pilot flying B-26s during the Korean War.

  2. 2. TOUCHMARK AT MT. BACHELOR VILLAGE Imagine celebrating birthdays, holidays, and special occasions at Touchmark. Surround yourself with friends who share fun, joy, excitement, happenings—it’s a community enjoying the {FULL} Life. We invite you to visit, talk with residents and team members, and discover why every day there is a reason to celebrate. Featured: • Terrace Lodge home 107 with 938 square feet, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, ground floor, fireplace, patio • Terrace Lodge home 433 with 706 square feet, 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, fourth-floor penthouse, fireplace Issue 7, 2013 | page 2 Celebrating in your new home (cont.) Some women also shared stories. For example, Ginger Elings was a pilot in the 1960s, flying a variety of planes, including the Piper Cherokee. Ruth Reiserer talked about her husband, Russell, a very talented pilot and Double Ace during World War II. Robbie Peoples (pictured) talked about her time as a “Rosie Riveter” during World War II. Robbie started building B-17 planes for Lockheed when she was just 18 years old.
  3. 3. October 2011 | page 1 TOUCHMARK AT MT. BACHELOR VILLAGE Issue 7, 2013 | page 3 Fun happenings Resident Dean Conger introduces a photo during the recent art reception. Dean worked as a photojournalist for 45 years (30 were for National Geographic). For nearly a half century, Dean captured moments in the lives of ordinary people around the globe. His work took him on 30 trips to what was then the Soviet Union. Dean’s many awards include Newspaper Photographer of the Year three times during the 1950s, Magazine Photographer of the Year in the 1962 Pictures of the Year competition, and the NPPA Joseph A. Sprague Memorial Award in 1987 for a lifetime of outstanding work in photojournalism. Also, Dean gave a popular presentation—Reflections of 45 Years of My Life—to a packed house. He had residents buzzing about the history, photography, world affairs, and more. Wearing pink, a team gathered at Drake Park and supported the Heaven Can Wait Run/Walk for Breast Cancer event, which helps educate people about the importance of early detection for breast cancer. The community’s annual casino event is always a fun evening, with a variety of games, including Craps, Roulette, and Black Jack. Touchmark Resident Council sponsored this much-anticipated event.

  6. 6. TOUCHMARK AT MT. BACHELOR VILLAGE Issue 7, 2013 | page 6 Marge Coalman, EdD Vice President of Wellness & Programs The right to question authority “In these chaotic times we must move from cognitive dissonance to inspirational dissonance by learning to live more deeply in the questions, and to ask new ones.” – Anne Dosher, Elder of the Ashland Institute and International Women’s Dialogue The headlines alone are enough to baffle us. Why would someone shoot and kill children and their teachers? How does a citizen feel empowered by sharing information that could jeopardize the well-being of others? “Why, why, why?” No one knows the answers, and some debate the questions. The question seems to be, “Does the right to be heard override the rights of others to be safe?” That challenge lies with the Supreme Court, the Canadian Ministries, and leaders in democratic countries around the world. In reality, it is important to be heard but not necessary to be right. That is the premise of the constitution, the Bill of Rights, the Canadian provincial governance, and other democratic bodies. As we celebrate Canada Day July 1 and the Fourth of July in the USA, we set aside personal preferences and biases and focus on the lives dedicated to freedom and the rights we all hold dear. In my interviews with Touchmark residents, I often pause and reflect on the wisdom, life experience, patriotism, and thoughtful observations they share. In the Lifelong Learning, Civic Engagement, and Legacy project offerings of Touchmark’s Full Life Wellness & Life Enrichment Program, there are venues and opportunities for residents to participate and share their knowledge and opinions. To contribute and participate in the Full Life’s Lifelong Learning programs, contact Life Enrichment/Wellness Director Angela Stewart. Support learning over the life span—whether there is universal agreement or not. Tuesday, July 23 from 4:30 to 7 pm Residents and team members will celebrate the community’s 10th anniversary with a Caribbean Celebration. Festivities will happen in the River Lodge parking lot and Great Room. Residents who bring age-qualified potential new neighbors will receive a complimentary meal for themselves and their guests. Otherwise, the buffet will be charge to the meal plan. The Summit Jazz Band will provide entertainment. Caribbean attire is encouraged! Resident transportation from the Terrace Lodge will be provided from 4:30 to 5 pm with a return time of 7 pm. Please sign up at any front desk. Touchmark to celebrate 10 years
