Take Me Out To The Ball Game

Staff and residents from Signature HealthCARE of Bowling Green, Signature HealthCARE at Hillcrest, and Hermitage Care and Rehabilitation Center enjoyed a day at Bowling Green Ballpark. They watched a thrilling game of baseball between the Bowling Green Hot Rods and the South Bend Cubs.

Even though the home team was unable to pull a win, the game was still exciting and the atmosphere was entertaining.

Our folks took pictures with the Hot Rods mascot, were featured on the jumbotron, and even caught a foul ball. We were lucky enough to be driving up when a foul ball was hit outside of the stadium. Thankfully nobody was hurt in retrieving the foul ball.

What a beautiful day at the park! We couldn’t have asked for better weather or a better day to be with friends and family!

Signature Staycations Continued

Our coverage of the Signature Stay-cations continues with a trip to the Corvette Museum with Signature Healthcare of Bowling Green, Signature Healthcare of Clarksville, Signature Healthcare of Hillcrest, and Hermitage Care and Rehab. Upon arrival to the museum, the communities were told “the story of the sinkhole,” given a brief orientation, and history.

In 1994, the Corvette Museum opened and it’s the only facility in America dedicated to a single model of car. The museum is also home to the One Millionth Corvette that was donated by Chevrolet. The Corvette Assembly Plant is located across the street from the museum, and our residents saw a brand new Corvette leave the floor to go to its new home.

They clapped and cheered as the car drove off the showroom floor. The residents learned about 70 different models of the ‘Vette, facts about the production, and checked out the videos and memorabilia. There was a wealth of knowledge shared, and the residents and staff soaked it all in. One of our residents even got the chance to sit in the driver’s seat of one of the cars!

The crew had a great time and they are looking forward to go back in September when the “Sinkhole” display is open for touring. Maybe they’ll get a chance to take one of those ‘Vettes for a whirl around the block next time!

Doesn’t hurt to dream, right?

Audra began her career with Kentucky Utilities, in Hartford, Ky., and she retired from the same company in Louisville, Kentucky as an auditor in the accounting department in 1972 at the age of 65.

Audra has been with Hillcrest for many years, and she currently spends her time playing bingo and reading the newspaper. She believes she has lived 108 years because she has always eaten three healthy, cooked meals a day.
