WHAT: Residents of Senior Home Sharing set sail on the historic St. Charles Paddlewheel Riverboats.
WHY: Every year senior residents at Senior Home Sharing enjoy independence by going on exciting adventures all throughout the western suburbs.
WHERE: St. Charles Paddlewheel Riverboats, 2 North Avenue, St. Charles, IL 60174
WHEN: 3:30p.m.- Monday, August 26th
HOW: It is not everyday senior adults get to let their hair blow in the wind on the open river. The trip will start with the senior residents carpooling together so everyone can board at the Pottawatomie Park dock. The Anderson family has owned and operated the Paddlewheel Riverboat since the mid 1940's. Most of the cruise routes have not changed but the scenery never gets old.
WHO: According to the St. Charles Paddlewheel Riverboats website, “Chet
Anderson was working at the Pottawatomie Park concession stand in the-mid
1940's when the idea of buying a boat and offering rides to the park picnickers
began to take shape in his mind." It's possible one of our senior
residents might have enjoyed the cruise as a child in the original Honeymoon
Senior Home Sharing provides seniors with an opportunity to live independently in an affordable family style home.
