09/11/2015 - 8th Annual "Good Old Days"
Kingston Residence will host their 8th Annual “Good Old Days ~ Across the Decades” Event on Friday, September 11th from 4 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. at 7515 Winchester Road. 

Bruce Borders,an Elvis impersonator, will be the feature entertainment. Borders isbest known as the “Mayor of Rock and Roll” since being elected as Mayor in Jasonville, Indiana. He has made national appearances including Letterman, performed at the Indiana State Fair, as well as a host of conventions, proms, retirement communitiesand reunions. 

Additionally, The Old Fort Model A Car Club will have a number of cars on display and local Waynedale News columnist and shop owner Lois Levihn will bring quilts to exhibit. Kingston will offercorn hole, homemade caramel corn made over an open fire, tasty beef stew, biscuits and ice cream. 

The “Good Old Days” is a free event with donations being accepted toward the Waynedale Trails and Sidewalks Initiative. This local committee has donated over $20,000 toward the design and engineering of both trails and sidewalks slated for Bluffton Road between Lower Huntington and Winchester Roads in 2016/2017. A new ramp was just installed at the Fairfield/Lower Huntington intersection as part of recent roadway improvements. The ramp intersects with the St. Mary’s Pathway that runs through Foster Park to Tillman Park. 

Committee chair and Kingston Marketing Director, Camille Garrison states that “although the ramp has been open for only a few short weeks, there has been a lot of foot and bicycle traffic. Many people are enjoying the safe and easy access to the trails.As a bonus, our Waynedale businesses may also see increased walk in customers.” 

Kingston Residence Assisted Living Community has been serving the community since 1990. It offers engaged and fulfilling retirement living with compassionate nursing support.
