The 4th of July holiday got off to an early start at Cypress Place Senior Living in Ventura when the senior living community hosted their “Songs Across America” patriotic event on Wednesday June 29, 2022.

In true old fashioned Americana style, Cypress Place celebrated the 4th of July with live patriotic music performed by Sam’s Mardi Gras Band. Desserts and specialty coffees were served to residents, their family members, and friends of the community, by Cypress Place staff during the festive event.

Ron Perkovich and Rick Peterson, from the Monday Night Poinsettia Dance Club, were also in attendance, adding to the lively environment while dancing with residents and attendees looking to celebrate life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

“This was just such a wonderful, wonderful evening,” enthused Helen Brant, a resident at Cypress Place, who was seen frequently on the dance floor. “It was the best party ever.”

American classics such as Yankee Doodle Dandy, This Land Is Your Land, and American military branch of service songs, amongst many others, were performed by the five-piece band.

“We try to bring as much joy as possible to our residents,” said Gina Salman, executive director of Cypress Place. “It makes our hearts swell with happiness and pride to see everyone enjoy themselves with events like these here at our community.”

The evening wound down with everyone joining in on a rousing yet touching rendition of God Bless America, flags waving gently in the evening breeze.
