San Angelo seniors kick off summer with Pinewood Derby

Residents at Baptist Retirement Community recently kicked off the summer with cars, ice cream and childhood memories.

Residents came together for fun that included a pinewood derby race and homemade ice cream contest. Smiles and laughter filled the room as the experience reminded people of their youth. 

"Many of our residents did Boy Scouts when they were younger and painted their own pinewood derby cars," Baptist Retirement Marketing Director Erin Kelly told KSAN. "So we wanted to bring back some of those memories that they had."

The celebration is one of many activities throughout the year at Baptist Retirement, a beautifully landscaped 100-acre Life Plan Community serving seniors throughout the Concho Valley. Baptist Retirement offers independent living, skilled or long-term nursing, memory care assisted living, personal assistance program and  outpatient therapy.

Residents have access to on-site amenities such as a pharmacy, health clinic, chapel, beauty salons, a restaurant and fitness centers. BRC opened “The Crest,” spring 2016, a memory care assisted living home on campus. The Crest, Sagecrest Alzheimer’s Care Center and the Green House® Homes at Sagecrest are designed to further enhance the continuum of care for those living with memory care impairment. Baptist Retirement Community offers more senior living and life-enriching options than anywhere else in the area.
