The flowers are in full bloom, the weather is a perfect 75° and sunny, and a group of area seniors are sharing the beauty of springtime with their friends, family and neighbors.
On April 18, LeadingAge California member Valle Verde is hosting their biannual flower show, and more than a dozen residents are expected to participate in the special event. Each resident and staff at the senior living community is invited to make their own floral arrangements with their favorite plants and flowers.
The arrangements will be as unique as each individual person, and will be on display during the Easter weekend for everyone to enjoy.
The event is open to the public through the weekend. Hours: Friday & Saturday, 10:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m. and Sunday, 10:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m.

HUD recently featured LeadingAge member CCH Sierra Meadows as a “shining example of a project that successfully incorporated federal, state and local strategies to meet affordable housing needs,” highlighting how the Section 202-funded development supports sustainable design while delivering social services to its 42 residents. In 2013, the project received special recognition with a MetLife Foundation Award for Excellence in Affordable Housing.
CCH President and CEO, Don Stump, stated, “This special recognition from HUD highlights the unique skill set which CCH has spent five decades developing. Our approach allows us to bring financing, construction, sustainability and rich service together into one integrated housing package.”
