Patient/ Resident Stories

Concordia Calendar Artist Profile: Margaret Zabor

March 2
+

In 2019, Concordia’s calendar featured amazing resident artists – some who studied art in college and made a career out of it, some who won awards for their paintings and even those who always enjoyed art but didn’t truly get to paint until coming to Concordia. The good news is that the first group only scratched the surface of the talent found at Concordia. For 2020, our calendar features gorgeous paintings from 11 new artists.

Titled “Brush Strokes 2,” the calendar features a different painting each month by a resident who lives at one of our locations. And each month, we’ll introduce you to the artist, here. March and June’s resident artist is Margaret Zabor of Concordia Village of Tampa.

Pretty much everyone has a favorite memory from Thanksgiving. Maybe it’s going around the table to say what you’re most thankful for, eating until you can’t fit another bite, volunteering at the local homeless shelter, reconnecting with family you haven’t seen in years – most of us can point to something from this special holiday that makes us smile.

For Concordia retirement living resident Mary Lou, there was one Thanksgiving in particular that she thinks about every year around this time, and she was kind enough to share it with all of us! Enjoy her story below – and from all of us at Concordia, have a safe and happy Thanksgiving!
