Service Commitment

Big picture: My parents stayed at the Silver Star Club Resort every winter during the month of February. I would visit them during my college breaks, bringing friends to ski the slopes of Vance Creek. At one time they had even considered buying a second home there. After my father past several years ago, my mother decided that she wanted to move to the East Coast of the US to be closer to my family. She expressed the desire to live in a senior living facility rather than by herself in a small apartment. She did not want to impose on us. So I began a search for a senior living facility.  I learned about Hart Heritage Estates, a home for seniors in Bel Air Maryland, about a twenty minute drive from where I live from my neighbor whose father is in one of the two homes. they operate. We selected the Forest Hill residential care facility that is located on 6.5 acres of park-like grounds with the Ma and Pa nature trail nearby. My mother loves to still go for walks and this seemed perfect. She has seen deer, foxes ,and rabbits from her room. And she keeps a pair of binoculars on the window sill to check out birds that land in the nearby trees. Just the other day during my weekly visit we looked at photo albums that had pictures of the Silver Star Club Resort and of us skiing. It was sometime around 2003. Looking at them brought back great memories. I was so inspired that I am planning a ski vacation for my family at the Vance Creek Hotel in the heart of Silver Star Mountain Village for next February. Although my mother will not be coming with us, she'll be able to share our adventures vicariously on Facebook!
