Summer is starting off strong at Oakmont of Santa Clarita, as a number of events have already been hosted during the start of the season.
KHTS welcomed Mary Dembkowski from Oakmont of Santa Clarita on-air recently to discuss a few of the events that took place at the senior living community recently.
“We’re always trying to plan new and exciting events for our residents, because they like to have fun,” Dembkowski said.
A Strawberry Festival was held in May, where a local piano player provided live entertainment and residents enjoyed a variety of strawberry-themed foods.
“We had all kinds of strawberry things you could taste, from strawberry salsa to homemade strawberry ice cream our chef made,” Dembkowski said. “We did strawberry lemonade, and then we did strawberry champagne, which was a big hit.”
