One of the main reasons Community Life is so important in our community is because of the connections and friendships you make along the way. That is precisely the reason that we joined the local Beanbag Baseball League in the Des Moines Area. It creates exercise, competition, friendship and teamwork, but what we didn’t expect to find is a family connection between the opposing teams. Assisted Living resident Juanita was completely shocked when she looked across the room at the line of competitors and recognized a familiar face, her sister in fact! Juanita and Betty were pretty excited to see each other after the game! Betty came from our sister retirement home in Ankeny and was very pleased to see her sister doing so well!
