Longevity is a word that has different meanings when a person thinks about it in various stages of one’s life. A working person will often use the word longevity in terms of how long they have worked at a company or within a business line. After a person retires, often the word is used to describe how old a person is.
To highlight these two uses of the word longevity here at Bay Village, first is our employee Barbara Bowles. Barbara has been an employee here at Bay Village since 1977 as a housekeeper. She is the longest tenured staff member here, starting just two years after Bay Village opened. Her favorite part of Bay Village is all the nice residents. She has seen many changes here during those years, but one that sticks out in her mind is the larger apartments now because of the apartment combining that has occurred for many years. Barbara’s longevity of employment here is second to none! Congratulations, Barbara!
Last month we celebrated two special birthdays during the month. Claire Mader turned 105 and Sarah Barlow turned 100. Both of these ladies celebrated the longevity of their individual lives. Congratulations to both! If you see Barbara Bowles (our staff member) or Claire Mader or Sarah Barlow (our residents) this month, please be sure to congratulate them!
