From the desk of the Executive Director

Laura Kephart

‘Tis moonlight, summer moonlight,

All soft and still and fair;

The solemn hour of midnight

Breathes sweet thoughts everywhere

~Emily Bronte~

Growing up as a child, I was very fortunate to have two greataunts and a great-uncle living next door to us. My elegant aunts allowed me access to dusty attic trunks full of beautiful hats and clothes, beads and brooches, and spritzes of cologne from the lovely glass atomizers on their dressing tables. Many a Summer day was spent enjoying a picnic in all of our finery in the garden my Aunt Hilda tended daily. They insisted on cloth napkins and good manners, clean faces and hands, and sitting up straight. Aunt Edna made the most delicious scones I’ve ever tasted, and we would sit outdoors for hours, visiting and enjoying the Summer sun. Our Uncle John was a stately gentleman who had been a judge, and although he was rather stoic my younger brother could always manage to coax him and his driver Jim to take us on outings for ice-cream on a hot afternoon. These genteel ladies taught me the importance of attention to detail, as well as how to embroider, bake, garden and sew. Overall, I learned that” gracious living is the result of meticulous planning” asAunt Edna would say. No guest came to visit that was not met with a warm smile, a good cup of tea, and a well cooked meal or “nosh” as she called any food eaten out of the timeframe of a meal. As we welcome August here at San Clemente Villas by the Sea, I recall these Summer memories, and all of the effort that went in to making them special for us. My staff and I are working together to bring this same attention to detail to all of the events and services that we provide to you; our residents, and to assure that all of our residents enjoy themselves, even during these challenging times. Please know that your suggestions will be met with a ready ear and an open mind. The San Clemente Villas staff and I are available to discuss your suggestions and concerns personally, through voice mail, or email. Drop by for a visit, or drop a note in the suggestion box at the Front Desk. Our passion is, and should always be, to make your lives better.

Here’s to a beautiful Summer!
