Here at Harmony Senior Services, we love to highlight our residents and associates. Take a look at who was featured throughout our communities during the month of October.
Residents of the Month - Frank & Fran Sweeten
Fran turned 100 in July, and Frank is turning 100 this month. Happy birthday to both of them! This sweet and amazing couple has been married for 73 years. They met in the same building at AT&T and started going to mass together. They experienced a lot through the past century: World War II, inventions like the first television, and mankind's accomplishment of the first man on the moon. The two believe that their faith has kept them going. Congratulations to them both!
Resident of the Month - Walt Dudley
Walt Dudley was born in Baltimore. He always remembers loving the water. He would fish on the Chesapeake Bay with his father, and after graduating from high school, he joined the Coast Guard. He proudly served as a Warrant Officer for 20 years in Texas, Mississippi, Connecticut, Hawaii, and DC. He retired to Falls Run and joined our community in January 2021. His favorite pastimes include playing mahjong, building and flying radio control model airplanes, freshwater fishing, and singing in church choirs. He is the proud father of four children and lots of grandchildren. We are thankful to have this water-loving, happy gentleman in our midst!
