The twinkling lights decorating Sugar Hill Retirement Community reflect off the fallen snow. Inside, all is warm, bright and joyous. Christmas trees decorate almost every room, lights glimmer in the Sugarhouse dining room, and a miniature train surrounds the tree in the library.
As an active retirement community with private cottages and apartments, Sugar Hill has a full slate of Christmas activities for community members to choose from, many of which change from year to year.
Here are some highlights:
Each year, residents’ doors announce the season with festive decorations as part of the annual Door Decoration Contest. Residents can get in on the fun by decorating their doors or can enjoy the work of their neighbors.
It really shows how festive they are. The residents themselves vote on which they like best, and we usually do some sort of prize for whoever wins.
Drive Through Cookies and Hot Cocoa
Come and drive through our Sugar Hill Sweet Stop and pick up your Cookies and Hot Cocoa treats to kick off the countdown to Christmas.
The Sweet Stop Elves will bring your sweets to your car window as you drive through the Sugar House Portico. If you live in the Sugar House you can swing thru the inside stop in the lobby
The common areas of Sugar Hill, including the dining room, are decorated by staff for the holiday season.
Some residents choose to brighten up their cottages and apartments with their own decorations. Many will have a tree in their homes, and some will put up outdoor lights as well.
The maintenance staff is more than happy to help residents put decorations up.
Carols by the Fireplace and Ugly Christmas Sweater and Mask Fashion Contest
In years past, high school students would also join Sugar Hill community members for a day of carols and games. It’s a cozy, festive event that’s a favorite of both the students and residents. Since this is a very different kind of year and we can’t have our traditional holiday party, we are going to have an Ugly Christmas Sweater & Mask Fashion contest
Pictures will be posted on the bulletin board and everyone will have a chance to cast their vote.
