-- Kirkwood, Mo. — Aberdeen Heights, the St. Louis area’s newest senior living community, will celebrate the completion of all phases of construction and residential move-ins with four days of festivities. The community’s grand opening week will begin with a resident event on Monday, April 23, to celebrate the nearly 200 seniors who have moved to Aberdeen Heights since it officially opened in September of last year. Kirkwood mayor Arthur McDonnell will join Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America president and CEO Bruce Shogren and other community leaders and invited guests for a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Tuesday, April 24. Those interested in touring the community are invited to the Parade of Homes Showcase on Wednesday, April 25, and Saturday, April 28, which will be open to the public. Also open to the public is a special presentation on Thursday, April 26, from Dick Edwards, Administrator Emeritus – Mayo Clinic/Charter House and author of Mom, Dad… Can We Talk? Edwards will share knowledge gained from more than 35 years of experience working closely with older adults and their families.
