Every Bunny loves some Bunny!

Easter was celebrated in style at Aravilla this year. Residents were invited to attend church services & sing and praise with an in house hymn observation. We had afternoon fun with a special Easter Bingo & delicious holiday Mimosas garnished with Easter Peeps.

Aravilla Book Club Presents!

Assisted Living Aravilla Sarasota - book presentation

Aravilla Book Club was proud to host a book reading by accomplished author; Agnes Schipper; wife of resident John Carson. The book; Sabine’s Odyssey, is a personal account of her family’s haunting experiences during the Holocaust. She had an extensive amount of information and an amazing number of photos to illustrate. Our residents were enthralled and engaged with her presentation. They discussed with her and remembered living through World War II. We are so appreciative for Agnes to speak with us about such a serious subject and will continue bringing in writers and other speakers for important discussions to educate, entertain & remember.

At the Hop!

Aravilla celebrated the 50’s in Style last month at our “At The Hop” Sock Hop 50’s party. As we went back in time, sipping served Root Beer Floats, danced & reminisced with Classic 50’s Rock & Roll by our resident DJ Dave. Everyone had a blast watching our hula hoop contest & twisting the day away.
