A beautiful summer day, classic cars and older adults who have special memories of their vintage automobiles came together at the 12th Annual JSL Senior Dream Cruise, Tuesday, Aug. 13, at the Jewish Senior Life residences on the Eugene and Marcia Applebaum Jewish Community Campus in West Bloomfield, sponsored by AMAC Pharmacy Services.
Libby Lavine, Hechtman Residence program coordinator, works on this project all year long. She says, “Cars are the life-blood of most Detroiters, and for some 250-300 residents of the communities of Jewish Senior Life, classic cars bring back memories of cruising Woodward, first dates and happy times gone by.”
Seventy-five cars spanning every decade cruised JSL Campus in West Bloomfield, where residents and family members enjoyed the festivities and party atmosphere. Barbra Giles, executive director of aging services, served as event emcee, dressed in ’50s style poodle skirt and didn’t disappoint as she provided a running monologue of fun descriptions of the cars and their drivers with little stories of their connection to JSL.
