With 3,700 eggs stuffed with goodies and a dozen winning prize baskets, this event was surely egg-straordinary for everyone who was able to attend.
The community room was packed with kids, parents and balloons as everyone empty their Easter eggs in hopes to find the “golden ticket” for a large prize basket. Eric Bartel, Manager of St. Catherine Commons says this is his favorite event each year. “We love hosting this event each year for the kids and families in the local community.

April, 2012 (Waukesha, WI) - Join TEAM CAPRI for the Alzheimer's Association's Walk to End Alzheimer’s. Capri Senior Communities has participated in the Alzheimer’s Walk since 2010 and has raised over $8,000 to the cause. Please join us and help raise awareness and funds to fight Alzheimer’s disease. Together, we can advance research to treat and prevent Alzheimer’s, and provide programs to improve the lives of millions of affected Americans.
Because Capri Senior Communities has 10 communities throughout southeastern Wisconsin, TEAM CAPRI chooses a different location for the team each year. This year, Capri has an even stronger connection to the Alzheimer's Association as we opened our first Memory Care Community, Casa del Maré in Kenosha. We support the Alzheimer's Association as well as our residents and their families that are affected by this disease.

February, 2012 (Kenosha, WI) - The first few residents of Casa del Maré have officially moved in this week! After unpacking their bags and getting settled, residents and their families gathered for the first meal at Casa del Maré on Monday night.
Casa del Maré is an addition to the St. Catherine Commons Senior Living Campus on 7th Avenue on the former site of the old St. Catherine’s Hospital. The new 69-unit assisted living and memory care community features a home-like, comfortable environment with many unique amenities including a refreshing lake-view spa, Health & Wellness Suite with a Physical Therapy Center, Media Room, Intergenerational Room, Game Room and Activity spaces.
Casa del Maré also holds a few pieces of Kenosha’s history. As you enter the main lobby you will find the original statue of St. Catherine and pillars from the old hospital. Other relics include marble tiles from the hospital floor, large doors, stained glass from the chapel and a cross. Assistant Executive Director, Amy Rohrer knows the significance of the former St. Catherine’s site and says, “Many of our residents have a connection to St. Catherine’s hospital. They were born here, their children were born here, or they worked at the hospital.”

January, 2012 (West Allis, WI) - After an exciting K-9Unit Demonstration by Deputy Dan Dittberner and his dog Arras and Deputy Joel Stricher and his dog Rico, the residents and staff of The Landmark of West Allis and Carnegie Place wanted to do something in return. In order to show their gratitude to the special four legged friends that courageously put their lives on the line for our everyday, the residents of The Landmark and Carnegie Place pulled together and raised $285.00 for the WI Vest–A-Dog Program.
The goal of the VEST-A-DOG Program is to provide a bullet proof and stab proof vest for every police dog in Wisconsin. The vests are the only protection these K-9 officers have until their human partners arrive on the scene. Sadly, many law enforcement agencies and police departments do not have the funds to purchase body armor that can save the lives of their police dogs. The cost of each vest is $840. In Wisconsin, we have over 235 canine officers. Most of them do not have protection.

October, 2010 (Waukesha, WI) - Summit Woods and Catholic Memorial High have teamed up to raise money for the Freedom Honor Flight Program. On Saturday, October 16 Summit Woods and Catholic Memorial High ran a FREE car wash in efforts to raise money for the Freedom Honor Flight. The Freedom Honor Flight Program is a unique program that raises money in order to fly America's heroes to Washington D.C. to visit their war memorials. This is a special kind of honor for the sacrifices of America's veterans.
Both Summit Woods and Catholic Memorial have a special connection to this uplifting program. There are 12 veterans that call Summit Woods Home; one resident will even be a part of the Honor Flight early next year. Catholic Memorial has been raising money for the Freedom Honor Flight in hopes to send 23 veterans on the special trip in honor of the 23 CMH veterans that lost their lives in World War II.
Catholic Memorial High serviced 47 cars and collected $780 on Saturday. In addition to the $780 in donations, Capri Communities donated $250 to the cause bringing the grand total to $1,030 for the Freedom Honor Flight.
