Bay Oaks ispleased to have worked with the producers of “Moonlight” when they were filming in Miami. The film has also earned awards from the New York Film Critics Circle and the Independent Film Award.
The grounds of the summer house were used for a scene captured below from the trailer.
Mr. Irving Mann has now celebrated both his 103rd and 104th birthday at Bay Oaks. Our resident blogger even managed to get the occasion chronicled in the Miami Herald. We love his wit and character, and look forward to celebrating his 105th with him and his family next year.
Many resident guests were able to vote early thanks to Miami Dade Election officials supervised voting in our community room. We want to remind you that it is everyone’s civic duty to vote. People like Ms. Mary Alice Blake (above) served in the military during WWII to preserve and protect your right to vote. Don’t take it for granted.
Thursday was Mr. Bill Warnke’s 90th birthday. His daughter Lisa visiting from out of town joined him and 7 other resident guests and 4 staff members in our Mercedes Benz Sprinter on a trip to one of his favorite places: Gulfstream Park. We spent a winning afternoon in the casino sharing in Mr. Warnke’s good fortune and luck.
It’s the hot, hot summertime, and that’s when we like to head up to Dania Beach and have some ice cream sundaes at Jaxson’s Ice Cream Parlour and Restaurant. The trip has been a Bay Oaks tradition, just as Jaxson’s has been a tradition since 1956.
