TEMPE, ARIZONA (June 17, 2020) – Two LivGenerations’ communities will honor dads, grandfathers and great grandfathers on Father’s Day with a “drive-through parade” and chalk art messages and artwork.

LivGenerations Pinnacle Peak will hold a drive-through parade on Sunday. It begins at 10 a.m. Family members and staff will gather at the community at 9:45 a.m. with posters and decorated cars. LivGenerations Pinnacle Peak is an independent living, assisted living and memory care community with 116 residents at 23733 N. Scottsdale Road, in Scottsdale.

“Our Mother’s Day parade was such a hit that we want all of the dads, grandpas and great-great grandpas to feel the love as well,” said Kelsey Conde, Director of Vibrant Living at LivGenerations Pinnacle Peak. “We have also prepared a special lunch for all the residents including a special dessert.”

LivGenerations Ahwatukee will host a Father’s Day chalk art event beginning at 8 a.m. Chalk will be provided to family members and staff. The event runs until 10 a.m. LivGenerations Ahwatukee is a senior living, independent living and memory care community with 137 residents at 15815 S. 50th St., in Phoenix.

Social distancing will be a priority at both events.

“We decided to do chalk art for our residents to remind them of the childhood memories their children had,” said Nila Soliz, Director of Vibrant Living at LivGenerations Ahwatukee. “With a great response to our Mother’s Day parade, we wanted to do something special for our fathers as well. We decorated our lobby as a childhood memory area complete with lake scenes, golfing, B.B.Q, football, kites, ping pong, badminton and suits and ties.”

On Mother’s Day, family and staff of residents at both LivGenerations’ communities honored their mothers, grandmothers and great grandmothers with a drive-through parade.
