On April 19th, a much anticipated program took place as over 100 Collingtonians packed our auditorium and an unknown number watched from home on channel 972. Dr. Peter Fielding, Chair of the Health Services Committee, introduced us to Medstar Gerontologist, Dr. Hennawi.
Dr. Hennawi presented his vision for medical care here at Collington based on a model already in place in Baltimore. As he demonstrated his enthusiasm, his presentation included statistics documenting this model of care’s success. Watch for yourself, understand the future of gerontology and how we may be part of that trailblazing experience!
Collington celebrates National Poetry Month with this first-ever display in the Creative Arts hallway across from The Landing bistro. Check the display for new poems, books, and inspirations every week during April.
Lee McKnight was the longtime leader of the poetry group at Collington. He was a man of great compassion, wit, and generosity of spirit. He is greatly missed.
Everyone is invited to join the Poetry Group:
Who: We are residents who simply enjoy reading poetry.
What: We each bring a published poem to read to the group and tell a bit about the poem’s author.
When: The Poetry Group meets the 2nd Thursday of the month from 3:00-4:00
Where: In the Board Room.

Here are some of our residents who traveled to downtown Washington to support the hundreds of thousands of young people protesting gun deaths in America, and to demand sensible gun control actions from politicians.
