Well before the release of what’s to be the latest Star Wars blockbuster film, residents of Friendship Village honored the iconic movie series. On December 8th, the community held an all day celebration of Star Wars: The Force Awakens in a themed event observed in virtually every department. Dining services prepared Princess Leia cinnamon buns and Yoda yogurt. The fitness staff taught Jedi moves for strength and balance. A spiritual team led a discussion about the spiritual journey of the force, and Star Wars movies were screened. A Star Wars caricature artist drew residents, actors in costume visited, Chicago area’s Zazz quartet performed May The Force Be With You, and more.

“One week we celebrated what would have been Frank Sinatra’s birthday and the following week, the release of Star Wars. Residents in our community have interests and passions that span decades and it’s fun to honor all of them,” said Jeff Rose, lifestyles manager.
