If you are thinking about moving to a senior community, you owe it to yourself to tour 10 Wilmington Place! Where else can you enjoy a golden oldie or new release movie in 2 state-of -the art movie theaters?
Thirteen diners recently enjoyed a 5-Star meal prepared by 10WP's Certified Executive Chef Keith Davis, and raved about their dining experience. It's no wonder since 10 Wilmington Place is one of three retirement communities in the United States to receive the American Culinary Federation Achievement of Excellence Award. The magazine's author of the restaurant review article stated "If our dinner was a sample of what Chef Keith has to offer the residents, the award is well deserved".

Another fun activity for 10 Wilmington Place Residents includes a trip to 5/3 Field for a Dayton Dragons baseball game this June.
A little rain did not dampen their spirits as they cheered players on to a 10-5 victory over the Lansing Lugnuts.

On Tuesday, June 17th at 2:00pm, 10 Wilmington Place residents and staff had a “Flag Day” Ceremony on our front porch. The local VFW took down our old flag and presented us with a new one, and also did a gun salute. Everyone enjoyed the sounds of patriotic music performed by our own Rebeka Cloyd.
