Valentine’s Day is special for different reasons for everyone. At The Fountains at Sea Bluffs this was our 2nd annual “Love is Sweet” Valentine’s Day Celebration. This day just so happens to be so special because it is also coronation day where two individuals are crowned the King and Queen at Sea Bluffs and announced by the HOA President to the rest of the community.
Our 2018 new elected HOA President, Eugene Flath, read a few poems from Dr. Seuss and announced our King and Queen as well as their duties: to smile and wish guests well.
This year’s royalty is King Ken Boettcher and Queen Millie Benner. They were so surprised! Last year’s Queen, Hilma Patterson, passed on her Queen pin and tiara to the new Queen and said a few words of wisdom and wished her successor well.
Earlier in the day, we observed Ash Wednesday with Father Branden from St. Edwards Church who came to distribute ashes to those who wished to receive them. We had lots of events happening in one day, but we all enjoyed every bit of it.
A recap of our day: we received our ashes, crowned our King & Queen, the entertainment was delightful, the meal was delicious, Champagne was flowing, everyone enjoyed the company and to top off our night, residents enjoyed a candy buffet bar where you could help yourself to all the candy and chocolate you wanted. It was outstanding!
