Congratulations Mr. David, our October Resident of the Month! Mr. David has been a resident at the Oaks at Pooler since July 2017. We feel so blessed that we have the privilege to spend time with him and have the opportunity to get to know so much about his life. Mr. David has a devoted wife who is often found by his side, and the love they have for one another is infectious! Mr. David and his wife met and began dancing together 20 years ago, and they both still love to dance when given the chance! Last year, they had a great time dancing the night away at The Oaks Senior Prom and they can still be found dancing together when Salón de Baile hosts Ballroom Dancing lessons in our community!
