Lantern Crest Senior Living is supporting Walk to End Alzheimer’s

June 17, 2024 – Our town took a magical trip down memory lane today. The Model T Ford Club of America rolled into town for their 2024 National Tour. 

Dozens of these magnificent Model T’s lined our streets. It felt like stepping back in time.

The visitors took a stroll through our town’s rich history, from the old Lakeside Inn, the Auto Speedway route, made famous by racing legend Barney Oldfield, to our charming historic buildings and homes.

The Lakeside Historical Society opened their doors, welcoming everyone to explore the chapel, museum, Gift Shop, and the Speedway monument. It was a little slice of the past brought back to life.

Their visit was short, but the memories will last a lifetime. A huge thank you to the Model T Ford Club of America for stopping by and making the day in our hometown so special.

Lantern Crest Senior Living has announced it is sponsoring a team at the Alzheimer’s Association’s 2012 Walk to End Alzheimer’s, a fundraising walk on Saturday morning, Oct. 20 at the Grossmont Center mall in La Mesa. Lantern Crest’s Kevin Spoor, executive director, and Amy Bloomfield, community marketing director, said its walk team will include housekeepers, kitchen staff, maintenance staff, office staff and caregivers who work at the assisted living and memory care community at 11010 Sunset Trail in Santee. The staff is inviting the community to join them on their two-mile walk and to support their walk team with checks that can be made payable to the Alzheimer’s Association.
