Another Successful Client Event

Anstey Hodge recently worked with The Farms at Bailey Station as they sponsored a forum that featured nationally known senior living expert, John Spooner.

As the co-CEO for Irving, Texas-based Greystone Communities, a premier management and consulting firm focused on senior living communities, Spooner has been an instrumental leader with Greystone as they have served more than 350 senior living clients within 46 states.

“Sneak Peak” at Memphis Zoo Creates a Splash

Who can resist a cute baby or a snuggly animal?  A cute baby animal is certainly a winning combination.

Anstey Hodge was excited to assist a client in planning a special “behind the scenes” event at the Memphis Zoo.  The timing could not have been more perfect as a baby hippopotamus was born there last month.

Overlooking beautiful waterfalls, streams, and gardens, Dr. Chuck Brady, president and CEO of the Memphis Zoo, gave invited guests a historical perspective of the zoo, in addition to providing insight into the future of one of Tennessee’s top tourist attractions.

The event took place within their newest exhibit, the Zambezi River Hippo Camp, which coincidentally housed the baby hippo waiting to make her public debut on Friday, April 7.  Timing was everything for the lucky attendees as they got an exclusive “sneak peak” at the 76-pound baby girl.  The event was part of the Class Acts Distinguished Speaker Series sponsored by the mid-South’s newest LifeCare community, The Farms at Bailey Station.

Many thanks to Local 24/CW30/Fox 16 for their coverage of the event.

Senior Living Community is Treated to “Real Life Willy Wonka” Experience

When you think of gourmet chocolate, you probably don’t envision chocolate combined with barbeque sauce, blue cheese, balsamic vinegar, bacon, fig jam, Spanish goat’s cheese or port wine.  On December 6, special guests at The Farms at Bailey Station in Collierville, TN, got the opportunity to hear how a local culinary artist, Phillip Ashley (Rix), combines these ingredients together to create one of world’s largest designer chocolate portfolios.
