On Sunday, December 11th, the Banner team (representing The Residences at Fountain Square) participated in the Waukegan Township and Park Place Senior Center’s Christmas celebration and 20th Anniversary Year kick-off celebration.
The Residences at Fountain Square is scheduled to open very soon, the week of December 20, 2011. The property will offer beautiful 1- and 2-bedroom apartment homes for seniors 55+ who qualify income-wise. The property participates in the federal LIHTC program (Section 42 / Tax Credit). Anyone interested in more information about the property should call (888) 810-8045. Our leasing team is happy to help! Located in the revitalized Fountain Square area, the property is surrounded by local businesses, shopping, banking, etc., that make the location extremely convenient. Apartments feature a full appliance package, open kitchens, ceiling fans, dark wood cabinetry, plenty of storage space, and bright windows. It’s an elevator building with laundry facilities on every floor, and a media room, community room, fitness center, business center, and more!
Banner reps at the event included Michelle, Cheryl, Colleen, and Steve. We brought gift bags for the tables with brochures, coupons, logo pens, and miniature stockings stuffed with candy. We were able to speak to the crowd for a few minutes before their lunch to make sure that everyone is aware of the property and excited about its opening!
There were approximately 300 guests at the event who enjoyed a great lunch served by representatives from the local Naval base. The “little Pillow people” entertained as did Adria McNair, a local gospel singer, and a local middle school choir. The lunch was emcee’d by Waukegan Township Supervisor Patricia Jones, and ended with a Senior Idol contest. Five local seniors showed up their vocal stylings, singing various songs and actually being judged. A few of the local Naval base reps wheeled in a giant 20th birthday cake for Park Place Senior Center and there was a visit from Santa Claus…of course!
We want to thank Patricia Jones and Marty Williams, the Executive Director of the Park Place Senior Center, for allowing us to participate and sponsor the event. We want to get to know as many people as possible in the Waukegan area. Our relationship with Park Place Senior Center and Waukegan Township is something we really treasure.
