Overlook Ridge – On November 18, Overlook Ridge residents attended sessions to receive quotes on life insurance and to sign up for savings/checking accounts.  Those who attended were entered into a drawing for a fabulous Thanksgiving basket giveaway.  Three lucky winners were chosen:

Clear Springs – Property management staff served a full course Thanksgiving meal “to go” for residents.

Meadowbrook – Cute and clever! Staff gave residents S’more dessert kits with the message: “We’re thankful for residents like you S’more than you know.”

Southside Manor – Community Manager Tamakieta Monroe gets to enjoy a guilt-free Thanksgiving feast. Tamakieta, consistently one of the top walkers in LHP’s walkingspree challenge and this week’s winner of a $25 gift certificate, set a goal to walk at least 20,000 steps a day so she could enjoy a hearty Thanksgiving meal without remorse.

To top it off, this past Saturday, she completed her first ever 10 mile road race. Tamakieta, enjoy your turkey dinner and splurge on a dessert. You’ve earned it!


Corporate – Speaking of desserts, Admin Assistant Larissa Horne shared a favorite holiday recipe for Spiced Pumpkin Pie with Molasses:


  • 1 1/2 cups cooked pumpkin or squash puree or canned (one 15-ounce can)
  • 1 cup light brown sugar (firmly packed)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 2 tablespoons molasses
  • 3 large eggs (slightly beaten)
  • 1 cup evaporated milk or ​half-and-half
  • 1 unbaked pie shell, 9-inch

Steps to Make It

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 F
  2. Prepare the pastry for your pie and fit it into the pie plate. Keep the pastry chilled in the refrigerator if you will not be filling it immediately.
  3. Combine the canned pumpkin, brown sugar, salt, spices, and molasses; beat to blend. Blend in the beaten eggs and the milk until the mixture is smooth and well blended.
  4. Pour mixture into the prepared pie shell. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. Reduce temperature to 350 F​ and bake for 35 to 45 minutes longer, or until the center of the pie is set. A knife inserted in the center of the custard should come out clean.
  5. Top each serving of the pie with whipped cream and a sprinkling of cinnamon-sugar.


To all LHP employees and their families,

Happy Thanksgiving!
