Tealridge Retirement Community in Edmond is celebrating its 22nd Anniversary June 28 at 4:30 p.m. The event will honor the founders of Tealridge, known as the Breakfast Club, who developed the plan for the retirement community over breakfast on Saturdays. Tealridge is owned by Oklahoma Christian University.
Harry Patterson, Jr., a member of the Oklahoma Christian board of trustees and owner of the Patterson Auto Group, will honor his late father, one of the original Breakfast Club members, with a gift to Tealridge and a bust of his dad. In addition, Joe Dodson, an Oklahoma Christian Lifetime Trustee, will be honored.
Speakers at the event include current Oklahoma Christian President John deSteiguer, former Oklahoma Christian President Kevin Jacobs and Oklahoma Christian board member and Oklahoma County Commissioner Ray Vaughn, a member of the Breakfast Club.
One of the charter members still residing at Tealridge, Wilma McDonald, will be honored as well. The evening promises to be one filled with memorable stories.
Residents at the Christian retirement community work out for free in the university’s fitness center, enjoy plays, concerts, musicals and special guest speakers on campus, attend basketball and baseball games and even take undergraduate classes.
