And Away They Go…Local San Marcos Seniors Enjoy a Day at the Races
Silvergate San Marcos retirement community hosts both residents and guests on their annual trip to the Del Mar Racetrack
Del Mar, CA. Last week, residents and guests of Silvergate San Marcos, a boutique retirement community in North County San Diego, ventured out to the Del Mar Racetrack to test their luck where the surf meets the turf. More than 40 seniors joined in the annual Silvergate adventure for a private lunch in the Stretch Run stands and an afternoon of excitement.
“This is always one of my favorite events of the year,” said Fran Harmon – longtime resident of Silvergate San Marcos. “A day of fun in the sun with good friends. The energy and speed of the horses is just exhilarating.”
For some, a return to the track was familiar territory and brought back memories of life’s rich experiences. “My late first husband, if you can believe it, was a jockey before we met and before he joined the Army,” said Nora Middleton, resident of Carlsbad and guest of Silvergate. “Seeing them ride today still brings back memories of some of the stories he used to tell me.”
According to David Nelson – Marketing Director for Silvergate San Marcos, this trip was one of many outbound adventures planned with Silvergate in the coming months. “Providing an active lifestyle is a key part of our commitment to our residents. Whether we’re at the races is Del Mar, a vineyard in the local wine country, or celebrating the holidays at the Hotel Del in Coronado, we understand seniors want to keep celebrating life to the fullest. Our job is simply to make it easy to do just that.”
Silvergate’s executive management team was also in attendance and accompanied the seniors to the track. “One of the many advantages of being a locally run, private San Diego company is active involvement by the owners,” said Joan Rink-Carroll, Executive Director for Silvergate San Marcos. “Our residents and families continually tell us how meaningful it is to them to live in a senior community where they know the owner. It provides an added sense of trust and comfort knowing they’re paying such close attention.”
