-- The Buckingham retirement resort recently challenged their residents to a fun filled day of Masterpiece Living Field Day activities. The special occasion was held in conjunction with The Buckingham’s new partnership with Masterpiece Living®, a wellness program that focuses on specific components of healthy aging. More than 100 residents participated in events ranging from pool relays, Wii bowling and putting tournaments to billiards, darts and scrabble. Medals were given to the winners in each event.
“The residents had so much fun during the field day events,” said Cathy Lightfoot, director of sales and marketing at The Buckingham. “It was a great way to promote an active lifestyle while also building relationships with fellow residents. Overall it was a great success!”
