Five SHC Florida facilities joined together to celebrate Greek culture with a trip to Tarpon Sponge Docks. SHC of Pinellas Park, Golfview, Gulfport, Peninsula and Southern Pines ended a month-long observance of Greek culture by making memories and enjoying a staycation right in their own backyard.
Tarpon Sponge Docks is host to a large Greek community. The sponge industry helped build the Greek community here and is now, not only famous for the world’s finest sponges, but for some of the finest Greek restaurants, markets and bakeries. The residents enjoyed a meal at the famous Greek restaurant Hellas. Special highlights included a resident from Peninsula treated like royalty for his birthday and served a special cake from his son. Hellas treated all five Signature facilities like VIPs and accommodated the large group, wheel chairs and all during a very busy Spring Break season. After lunch the group enjoyed shopping in the gift shops and sitting on the docks listening to island music and having ice-cream.
