You are Invited to a Special Event; Summer Outdoor Concerts Added

Noble Horizons is OPEN and the joy is palpable as we once again enjoy the programs, activities, and routines that we have so missed!

The Country Store is welcoming shoppers, in-person balance classes are underway, musicians are performing in the dining room, the internet cafe is buzzing, and to the great joy of all Noble music lovers, weekly concerts are back on the schedule!  Pictured here is Noble's first outdoor concert, performed by Hotchkiss students who used to perform regularly and hope to again next fall.

To ensure the continued safety of Noble residents, we ask that guests please be screened at the Wagner entrance, and through June, that community guests entering buildings be fully vaccinated.  Thank you for understanding; we look forward to seeing you!

Coyotes: The Facts vs. the Fiction

3

Wildlife specialist Paul Coburn will explore the myths and facts around this often reviled neighbor who thrives despite a 90% pup death rate in youth.  Coyotes are prey for eagles and one of the few animals that prey on porcupines.

FICTION: Coyotes carry rabies. FACT: A coyote is less likely to have rabies than a cow, groundhog, or deer.

FICTION: Coyotes attack humans.  FACT: Preying on humans is not normal behavior for a coyote. They are naturally extremely fearful, shy animals.

Join us on June 12 at 11 am to learn more about the coyote's history, behavior, diet, and reproduction as well as recommendations for coexistence.  Please register for a Zoom link.

You are Invited!

You are warmly invited to a very special Welcome Back to Noble program on July 11, 5:30-6:30 pm! You'll meet Administrator Bill Pond, Director of Nursing Molly Tanner, Wellness Director Lynn Famiglietti, Director of Rehabilitation Services Angelia Green, Admission Director Linda Castaldi, and many others.

Residents of Noble Horizons will host you in their cottages, in the Cobble, or in their private skilled nursing rooms. Spend time in the fitness center with our personal trainer, or stop by our short-term and outpatient rehabilitation centers to learn more about the extensive services our therapists offer.  You can enjoy delicious appetizers and breathtaking views in our dining room, explore the books in our library, grab a cup of coffee in our cafe, and much more.   We hope you'll stay for Michael Brown's 7 pm pondside outdoor concert; if you wish to pack a picnic, we are happy to reserve a table for you.

More details will follow but please save the date and make plans to join us-we can't wait to welcome you back!

Free Outdoor Summer Concerts!

The outdoor summer concert season is heating up at Noble's Horizons!

Launching the first performance on July 11 at 7 pm is the well-known singer and keyboard virtuoso, Michael Brown.  He will be followed on July 23 at 7 pm by Wanda Houston and the HBH band who last performed their signature blues, R&B, and musical theater hits to a standing-room-only audience at Noble shortly before the pandemic began.

August gets off to a rousing start on the 8th at 7 pm when The Lucky 3, a swing jazz band featuring foot-stomping music from the 20s, '30s, and '40s brings you to your feet!  As Wanda Houston raved, they "are GIFTED MUSICIANS who are altogether TRANSPORTING and AMAZINGLY FUN!!  If you like Jazz, historic music, and fun, then you'll love <them> as I do!!"

You are invited to picnic pondside before each concert; the grounds open at 6:30 pm and those wishing to reserve a table may do so using the links above.  We look forward to seeing you often this summer!
