Trustworthy sayings - there are many of them, we’ve learned them since childhood and they often act as guideposts dispensing helpful advice:

Local Home Builder to Open Senior Living Community, Offer Alternative to Institutionalized Living
Since 1961 Kay Builders has designed and constructed thousands of homes for Lehigh Valley families. “We have built homes for young couples, growing families, and empty nesters,” says third generation owner and president of Kay Builders, Rick Koze. “We have always listened to our clients and built the homes that they wanted. We know what people like, and now we want to build a great home for aging seniors,” reveals Koze.
Have we not often looked up at the sky and wonder at some of the remarkable birds flying above us or just sitting on a tree limb? While we might not be bird watchers, most of us take pleasure in seeing these beautiful animals soar high above us or just flitter from tree to tree.

Third Street Alliance held its “Senior Prom” recently and had a very nice turnout. A formal party invitation was sent out announcing the event. The attendees were decked out in their finest outfits and had a wonderful time dancing to the tunes. This particular event was geared toward our more senior citizens. It gave them a chance to get out and “cut the rug” a bit. The event was held at the Alliance’s building at 41 North Third Street in Easton.
