FLOWER MOUND— Avanti Senior Living is hosting two chic welcome events for the public to get a sneak peek and learn more about Flower Mound’s newest senior living community, Avanti Senior Living at Flower Mound. Avanti team members are excited to reveal plans, answer questions and gather insight from the public on what they would like to see from the community. At these special introductory events, attendees will be able to learn more about Avanti’s vision and what the senior living community will do for area seniors and their families. Attendees will also get a preview of interior design selections, and will have the opportunity to join Avanti’s A List. The events are free and open to the public, and will be held on April 27 from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. and April 28 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. at Twelve Stones – The Pines of Flower Mound (1221 Flower Mound Road).

“Avanti Senior Living at Flower Mound will open this fall, and we cannot wait to begin welcoming new residents,” said Lori Alford, COO of Avanti Senior Living. “We have elevated industry standards by focusing on personalization and choice, as opposed to making residents conform to a one-size-fits-all model. We continuously seek to empower residents so they can live the life they want to live in a community that is evocative of a posh, resort-style hotel. We’ll have pictures to help showcase the community’s layout, and we will also provide visitors with a distinct impression of the community’s overall feel and design.”

The community will provide 50 assisted living and 40 memory care suites, a state-of-the-art wellness center with ballet barre and fitness equipment, a theatre area and a full-service salon and spa offering relaxation therapy, aromatherapy, hair styling, manicures and pedicures. The 77,000-square-foot community will also offer a fully-functional art studio with an abundance of natural light and a stone wall on which the residents can display their artwork. The community and resident suites will boast plush carpets, wood flooring, plentiful windows, walk-in closets, oversized showers, stone countertops, upgraded finishes, expansive countertops and storage space as well as other signature features.

Victims of April 1, 2015 tragedy remembered

Note: For the humor-challenged, this post is a piece of April Fools satire.

SCHMEWISVILLE - People across North Texas will pause Friday at noon for a moment of silence in remembrance of the 1,369 Texans who literally died on April Fools Day, 2015.

That was the day when a local website The Schmewisville Schmexan Yournal posted an “unfortunate article” that upheld a tradition of annually fooling readers with an obviously false article that had been intended to entertain while “speaking to a larger truth.”

The content of that article remains off-limits for publication here. Authorities have warned that any mention of the subject matter could lead to more deaths. While the subject matter cannot be discussed, we can say that Schmewisville ISD was the target of the false article.

Bells will toll at noon for the victims, who died mostly from two different and yet opposite medical conditions. Approximately half of the victims died from sudden acute rectitis. The other half died from asphyxia risum, a pulmonary condition brought on by the uncontrolled reaction to a shocking and ironic situation. Three of the victims were school secretaries, who died of exhaustion, answering several phone calls from gullible parents.

The infamous article was written by April Fultz, and was clearly marked as satire by 8 a.m. that fateful day, but it would be too late. Righteous indignation overwhelmed many of the article’s thousands of readers, causing them to develop the fatal rectitis. The others laughed themselves to death. Sadly, local clergy believe their souls went straight to hell.
