FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The visit from LCDR Shaun Bellemare, USN and Kelly Stirling, Public Affairs Officer, Naval Air Station (NAS) Oceana, was a trip down memory lane for many of the men attending the recent Men’s Club Breakfast at Lake Prince Woods retirement community.

With a large contingent of World War II and Korean War veterans in the audience, Ms. Stirling gave a brief overview of NAS Oceana.

111The area of Virginia Beach known as Potter’s Farm became Naval Auxiliary Air Station Oceana in 1943. Naval Auxiliary Landing Field Fentress and Dam Neck Annex are also included in Oceana. NAS Oceana’s primary mission is to train and deploy the Navy’s Atlantic Fleet strike fighter squadrons of F/A-18 Hornets and Super Hornets. The base is home to the Navy’s F-14 Tomcats and East Coast F/A-18 Hornets. Some 19 squadrons comprised of 227 aircraft call Oceana home base.

LCDR Bellemare detailed his 14 years of Navy service and spent the majority of his presentation answering questions. Since some in the audience were former military pilots, a number of the questions had to do with improvements that have been made in aviation technology since World War II; the next generation of military aircraft was also discussed.

Lake Prince Woods residents will travel to NAS Oceana next month for a tour. They will see the flight line with all the jets lined up, visit the air traffic control tour, and receive updates from some of the pilots.

Lake Prince Woods is a residential retirement community offering an array of lifestyle choices. Located in Suffolk, Virginia, the community is nestled among 172 lovely wooded acres bordering Lake Prince. As a continuing care retirement community, Lake Prince Woods offers residential living, assisted living, memory care and skilled nursing care.

Greensboro and Winston-Salem, NC (May 20, 2014) – On Wednesday, May 28th, Kisco Senior Living’s Triad communities, Abbotswood at Irving Park, Heritage Greens and Heritage Woods invite area seniors to have fun like a kid again at a carnival at Tanglewood Park in celebration of National Senior Health & Fitness Day® (NSHFD).

From 10:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m., carnival attendees can join more than 100,000 older adults nationwide who’ll engage in “healthfully fun” activities designed to encourage seniors to stay fit and healthy. From strongman contests and a face-painting booth, to hayrides and pay-per-ride paddle boating, there’s something for everyone. And a carnival wouldn’t be complete without fair foods like hot dogs, grilled corn on the cobb and fresh fruit, free and available during the event. The carnival is designed to offer a variety of activities that engage the six dimensions of wellness – physical, spiritual, intellectual, social, emotional and vocational.

“We are excited to be hosting events that are open to the public and promoting senior fitness and healthy lifestyles,” said Maria Connelly, Kisco’s National Wellness Team Leader.  “They epitomize the Kisco community lifestyle we embrace, The Art of Living Wellsm. This award-winning, innovative approach to wellness promotes personal life balance and an optimistic can-do attitude for Kisco residents, associates and family members.”
All 20 Kisco Senior Living communities in five states take part in NSHFD every year. The national event is organized as a public/private good health partnership by the Mature Market Resource Center, and is also part of the International Council on Active Aging’s Changing the Way We Age® Campaign, an initiative that aims to shift the way society perceives aging.

“Our communities put fitness first and also love to have fun,” said Maria Connelly, Kisco’s National Wellness Team Leader.  “The NSHFD carnival is a perfect opportunity for area seniors to make, renew, and revitalize their commitment to live healthier lives and have some fun in the process.”
