2021 November Festival Cancelled
It is with deep regret we announce that the November 12 and 13, 2021, Pilgrim Place Festival has been cancelled. Following the best medical advice and predictions, the leadership teams of Pilgrim Place—residents and executive staff—have for a second year, determined that there is too much risk involved to hold a large public event on the grounds of a retirement community, even if some other public events are permitted at that time.

Festival is a large contributor to our Resident Health and Support Program which ensures that residents who have outlived their assets can continue to live with dignity and reassurance. It is the “heart” of Pilgrim Place. We hope that you will continue to support Pilgrim Place with purchases all year long of hand-made items from https://www.etsy.com/shop/PilgrimPlaceArtisans. Please come back to this page as we move through the next months of uncertainty so that you will know how our plans develop.

Pilgrim Place Residents and Staff Get Vaccinated
On Wednesday the coordinated effort throughout the campus to get almost 400 staff and residents their second vaccination shots was successful. With the effort of multiple staff, residents and and the staff from Walgreens, shots were given over almost a six-hour timeline. Everything went smoothly and waiting times were kept at minimum.

With only a few more people needing to receive their second vaccination shots, Pilgrim Place is so grateful to finally be in this phase of the pandemic.
