Historically, Opengate celebrates Awards Day with dinner, dancing and a gathering of individuals and their families along with staff members at a lovely venue. The unprecedented challenges of 2020 and COVID-19 prevented our annual social event, but in true Opengate fashion, we found a way!
Residence Managers did an outstanding job of tailoring each celebration to the interests of the residents of that house creating a festive spirit which brought enjoyment to all. In addition, outdoor parties were held on days with favorable weather accompanied by barbecues, Hawaiian shirts and tikis. Some of the residents were delighted to have favorite foods delivered to their houses.
As you can see in each photo, residents took pleasure in dressing for the occasion to proudly receive their awards and have pictures taken to commemorate their special day.
Due to COVID precautionary measures we were not able to include family members in the festivities, but we know they join with all of us to honor each individual’s accomplishments in 2020.
