Invitations have been mailed, preparations have been made, and on Wednesday, January 10th, Plymouth Harbor will hold the much-anticipated Ribbon Cutting Ceremony and Celebration, marking the official opening of the Northwest Garden Building!

We sincerely appreciate all of our residents’ cooperation and encouragement since breaking ground on this important project two years ago in December 2015. We look forward to celebrating its completion with all who are able to attend.

The theme of the event is entitled “A Cruise to Remember,” which will begin with the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony at 4:30 p.m., to be held in the Assisted Living Courtyard. The event will also be streamed live on televisions in the Assisted Living Restaurant.

Following the ceremony, guests will be invited to embark on the cruise – enjoying self-guided tours and visiting four different ports throughout the building for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. Each port will be stationed in a different wing of the new residences, showcasing cuisine local to the port’s location.

The ports will include:
Key West (Assisted Living Restaurant, Floor One). Generously sponsored by Brown & Brown Insurance of Sarasota.
Cuba (Dining Room of the Ringling Neighborhood in the Starr Memory Care Residence, Floor One). Generously sponsored by Northern Trust.
The Bahamas (Assisted Living Lounge, Floor Two). Generously sponsored by Shumaker, Loop & Kendrick, LLP.
Mexico (Bistro, Floor Three). Generously sponsored by Shutts & Bowen.

Additionally, Willis A. Smith Construction has generously sponsored the guest gifts and onsite photo booth, and the floral sponsor for the event is Capstan Financial Consulting Group. More than 200 guests are expected to attend the event, including Plymouth Harbor residents, employees, members of the Plymouth Harbor, Inc. and Plymouth Harbor Foundation Boards of Trustees, local media, and key partners involved in the development of this project. Also invited to the event are the 145 donors who made gifts to the associated capital campaign, which raised more than $3.3 million for the A Commitment to
Memory Capital Campaign.

We are proud to celebrate this opening of these new residences, and we look forward to continually striving to provide the most positive aging experience possible. We hope you will join us to celebrate and get a first look at the new additions to our campus!
