Patty Zatkin for the Quail Creek Social Activities Advisory Council
The Kentucky Derby race winner was an unknown by the name of “Rich Strike,” upon whom no one risked a bet, but we managed to give away prizes for the second-, third-, and fourth-place winners, as well as two prizes for the Best Hats worn that day. A good time was had by all!
The Activities Council arranged for a lovely backdrop for photos, horseshoe and cornhole games to be played on the event lawn, and a great “Derby Day” banner hung over the lounge patio where all in attendance (about 75 people) modeled their lovely hats and chose a horse to win the race. There was a special menu of Hot Brown open-face sandwiches, lots of mint juleps, and a great ice cream with candied pecans Derby sundae for dessert. Finally, a special edition of trivia completed the Derby Day event in the lounge.
