Gazette – March 2018 – Celebrate Our 50th With Us

Fifty years ago, Dr. Mack R. Douglas, a minister from Margate, FL gathered a few friends and proposed to develop a retirement community for senior citizens. The plan called for the construction of a group of cottages to be leased to a senior individual or couple for the balance of their lives. Originally known as Baptist Village, the community opened in Pompano Beach. Later, renamed John Knox Village, that community would grow to become home to more than 900 residents. Since September 2017, South Florida’s premier life plan continuing care retirement community has been celebrating its 50th Anniversary with a yearlong series of festivities and March is no different. The greater community is invited to take part in ArtSage 2018 from Monday, March 12 through Saturday, March 17. Join us for a week of performance, art, lectures, demonstrations and dance. ArtSage culminates on St. Patty’s Day with a gala campus wide event named “50th Anniversary Cars, Crafts and Community Village Jubilee Celebration.”
