  1. 1. October 2011 | page 1 EVENT{FULL}Monthly updates from your {FULL} Life community TOUCHMARK AT FAIRWAY VILLAGE Issue 7, 2013 | page 1 Cars, food, and flash mob draw crowds Georgia Hockett and her 1956 Ford Thunderbird hardtop convertible were among the approximately 150 cars and 2,000-plus people at this year’s sixth annual Car Show and Barbecue. Georgia’s car was a wedding present from her husband, Wayne, who was also at the show with his 1965 Mustang. “This is the best car show in town,” says Wayne. “I like the atmosphere, sun, shade, and food. I’ve been to all six car shows here, and Georgia and I go to about 10 a year. I like this the best.” Georgia also likes Touchmark’s show. “I think the most wonderful thing is it gives residents the thrill to see cars they used to drive,” she adds. Georgia and Wayne were married in 2007. “She said she always loved the ’56,” recalls (cont.)

The car had 78,000 miles on it when he bought it; it’s close to 82,000 now. “It was meant to drive, and that’s what we do,” says Georgia. Highlights from the show: • Best of Show winner and Luck of the Draw winners: Gary Neal with the 1929 Mercedes and Kenn Stinchfield with a 2007 Corvette Z06 and Jack Larango with a 2008 Roush Mustang 427. • The event raised about $4,500 for Loaves & Fishes. • Flash Mob!

Little by little, I worked my way back from a very difficult place in my life. I will be forever grateful for the staff and all the residents here at Touchmark who have supported me and my staff these past 14 years. “I have been told by many people that they love coming in our salons, because everyone is so friendly, and everyone truly cares about the people they are working with. “I am also very proud of the way my staff keeps the salon; we have always received “A”s on our state board inspections, and that is because everyone works together to keep both salons clean and neat.” -- Bonney Kratzer, Manager of the Touchmark Hair and Nail salons Bonny and her team run two salons at Touchmark that are open a variety of hours Monday through Saturday. They offer waxing, manicures, pedicures, and hair styling, which includes cutting, shampoo, coloring, and perms.

  6. 6. TOUCHMARK AT FAIRWAY VILLAGE 2911 SE Village Loop • Vancouver, WA 98683 360-254-2866 • © 2011 Touchmark Living Centers, Inc., all rights reserved 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 Michelle Avdienko. Support learning over the life span— whether there is universal agreement or not. Are you game? Ever wished to be a contestant or audience member of a game show? Here is your chance. Each month, the Full Life team will recreate a live game show experience. Residents will have the option to be in the studio audience or a contestant and win prizes. Shows already featured are the Family Feud and the Oldywed Game. This game is like the Newlywed Game but for couples who have been married awhile. Coincidentally, the winners (pictured) of the Oldywed Game were celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary and won a romantic candlelight dinner for two by the fire in the Fireside Dining Room. If you’re a trivia fan, July will feature Jeopardy! Please contact a member of the Full Life team if you are interested in being a contestant, or join the fun in the audience.
