September 10, 2018 (Henrietta, NY) ─ Seniors at Woodcrest Commons have been soaking up the last weeks of summer with road trips near and far. Residents from the DePaul Senior Living Community in Henrietta recently enjoyed a trip to Skaneateles for ice cream at the Skan-Ellus Drive In, as well as a picnic at Mendon Ponds Park in Rochester.
After taking a boat tour in Skaneateles last summer, residents decided to head back to the quaint village for a taste of the retro-vibe at the Skan-Ellus Drive In and a visit to Lockwood Lavender Farm.
“The minute we opened the bus doors, you could smell the lavender,” Activities Director Lindsay Lown said of the lavender farm. “It was like something you’d see in a movie or a book.”

Residents also enjoyed a stop at a local boat launch, a drive along West Lake Road to check out some beautiful lake homes, and a detour to Reese’s Dairy Bar for dessert.
In addition, Woodcrest Commons enjoyed a picnic at Mendon Ponds along with residents from Horizons, a DePaul Senior Living Community in Canandaigua. There they enjoyed peace, tranquility and watching butterflies flirt with warm breezes. They even paid a visit to the Monroe County Sherriff’s Mounted Patrol Horse Barn.
