Dear Residents, Associates, and Family Members of Drake Terrace:
I would like to update you on the status of last week’s COVID-19 testing. As of today, we continue to be COVID-19 free. As a reminder we continue to test weekly via Saliva “Pool” testing. This less invasive and more frequent test allows us to quickly identify if there is Covid-19 in our community. Associates and residents who leave the community frequently are tested twice a week and all other residents are tested once a week.
With Marin going back to the red tier and closing indoor dining at restaurants, I was asked by a few residents if our community indoor dining experience was also going to close. Currently due to our community not having any positive cases and our dining room layout adhering to COVID-19 guidelines we will continue to provide the indoor dining experience.
On October 5th, the Kisco Resident and Associate Spelling Bee competition started at all the Kisco communities. The Spelling Bee Semi Finals were held on Wednesday, November 15th and I am very happy to announce that Drake Terrace is headed to the Finals. I want to thank all the residents who participated in this year’s spelling bee and I want to give Joyce A. and Rowena J a huge shout out for representing Drake Terrace in the Finals on December 4th.
Thanksgiving is right around the corner and we have a delicious menu planned for the holiday. We will be delivering the Thanksgiving Feast options to the resident’s apartments who will not be eating in the dining room starting at 11:30 a.m. The indoor dining Thanksgiving Feast will consist of 2 seatings with the first seating starting at 12:15 p.m.
In the spirit of giving thanks I wanted to state that this year one of the many things I am grateful for is that I have the honor to be a part of the Drake Terrace family. I have felt nothing but support and received such great feedback from the residents, associates, and families. I know we had all hoped to be in a much better place at this point of the year, but I know that together we will get through this. I hope you all have a great weekend and a Happy Thanksgiving Holiday.
