MARCH 2023 NEWSLETTER



Dear Residents,


Happy March, Sierra View residents! We're excited to welcome the first day of Spring and to spring forward one hour on the clock. But that's not all that's happening this month - March is packed with exciting events and celebrations!


Did you know that March is Women's History Month and the NBA’s March Madness basketball playoffs? This is a time to recognize and celebrate the incredible contributions of women throughout history. Did you also know that many WNBA players have made significant contributions to women's sports history? For example, Lisa Leslie is a three-time WNBA MVP and a four-time Olympic gold medalist. She was the first woman to dunk in a WNBA game and is widely considered one of the greatest female basketball players of all time. But did you know that the WNBA has its own championship tournament too? The WNBA playoffs start in September and feature the top eight teams in the league competing for the championship title. The Seattle Storm won the WNBA championship in 2022, led by superstar Breanna Stewart.


Although it’s called March madness, the finals begin April 1st. So keep an eye on next month’s calendar for upcoming game dates. We'll also be keeping an eye on the WNBA playoffs later this year - who will take home the championship title? Stay tuned to find out!


Every year in the United States, Daylight Saving Time starts on the second Sunday of March. This year it falls on March 12th. On this day, we "spring forward" and set our clocks one hour ahead, which means we get an extra hour of daylight in the evenings.


In other news, Sierra View is set to be filled with the sounds of lively Irish folk music as Harmony Happens, a popular local band, takes the stage. Following their headline performance at the Miners Foundry on Friday night, the band is scheduled to perform at Sierra View on Sunday, March 19th. Known for their upbeat music, the band is expected to get everyone up and dancing.


Interestingly, one of the band members has a personal connection to Sierra View— her father lives here! De says he and his wife, Mary Lou, were the ones who recognized her musical talent and encouraged her to pursue her love for music. Being an avid guitar player, singer, and piano player himself, he saw a spark in his daughter and knew she had a natural talent for music. It's heartwarming to see that connection between family and music. Don't miss the opportunity to witness Harmony Happens' musical talents, and join us for an unforgettable evening of Irish folk music.


This concert, Harmony Happens, is Sunday, March 19th starting at 3:30 pm at Sierra View. We encourage residents to invite their friends and family to our open happy hour event. Green beer, non-alcoholic options, and giant soft pretzels will be available for all to enjoy. No RSVP is required, so just come and join the fun!


Our resident’s needs are Sierra View’s top priority. In order to reduce wait time during the evenings we welcome a new PM Care Staff, Nicole, to our team. Nicole is not only a lovely and cheerful person, but she also loves baking and sharing her treats! We hope you take a chance to get to know her as she is an awesome person! Additionally, to provide peace of mind on call button functions we will be doing monthly check in’s to calibrate call buttons and make sure they are functioning properly by alerting the front desk and paging care staff. We hope you know your voices are important and we hear you.


Finally, our fabulous Cherry Blossoms paintings are back with a twist. We will use recycled bottles to create a cute cherry blossom print. Everyone will display their art to decorate the halls of Sierra View and later you will be welcome to display your work in your space if you so choose.


That's all for now - happy March from all of us at Sierra View!
