Residents of The Buckingham senior living community recently awaited the iconic New Year’s Eve ball drop with a memorable celebration. The evening began with cocktails in the lobby followed by a lavish dinner in the Windsor Dining Room. After dinner, the games began as guests tried their luck while playing classic casino games such as 21, roulette and craps.
“We had a fabulous time waiting for the clock to near midnight and ring in 2013,” said Deborah Mahrt, lifestyles director at The Buckingham. “New Year’s Eve is such a festive night, and we had a great time celebrating the past year and looking forward to the new and exciting things that await in the new year!”
