A variety of activities have taken place at Oakmont of Santa Clarita so far this summer, and even more events are planned as August quickly approaches.
On the Fourth of July, residents came together in the Oakmont of Santa Clarita outdoor dining area, where they enjoyed a live band, BBQ dinner, ice cream cones and fireworks show.
“Our dining room actually faces Magic Mountain,” said Mary Dembkowski of Oakmont of Santa Clarita. “(It was) the best place to watch the fireworks in Santa Clarita.”
Though plans were in place for residents to go out to a baseball game earlier this week, staff decided to skip the game because of the heat and take residents out to dinner instead.
“Right now, we’re refraining from any (daytime) outdoor activities,” Dembowski said. “So they actually ended up going to Margaritas for dinner instead, where they can relax and stay cool and have a margarita.”
The next big event planned is “A Night Under the Stars” outdoor movie night for residents and their families.
“We have that beautiful courtyard, lots of space, so we’re actually renting a blow-up big movie screen,” Dembkowski said.
Staff haven’t decided on a movie for the event yet, but Dembkowski said it will be a family-friendly movie where grandkids and great grandkids are welcome, with courtyard s’mores also in the plans.
