Montclair Park celebrated its new name — Emeritus at Montclair Park — with an open house, live music and gourmet food March 12.
Cutting the ribbon, from left, are Mayor Becky Erickson, Executive Director Lee Sandstede, residents Elsie Bowers (with scarf), Audrey Klein (in purple blouse), Jean Wasson (in red blouse), Community Relations Director Kami Freke, and Miss Poulsbo Makenzie Moody.
Montclair Park, 1250 NE Lincoln Road, has apartments for retirement living and assisted living. It was founded in 2001 and in 2010 was bought by Emeritus, which owns senior- living communities across the U.S.
Sandstede said the name “Emeritus” fits Montclair Park’s mission; the word means “retirement with honor,” he said.
