The Cedars of Austin turned 30 last month and celebrated in style.
The senior housing community held an event with a car show, food and beverages and live entertainment to mark the occasion.
“It was a good successful event,” said Lisa Nelson, director of sales and marketing.

More than 400 people attended the event, which featured a history wall outlining the facility’s history back to 1957 when it opened as the Red Cedar Inn. An addition was added before it opened as The Cedars in 1986.
“The whole thing was just very cool,” Nelson said of the history wall.
The history wall will become a staple at The Cedars, as Nelson said they plan to add it near the Mill Pond entrance to the facility.
Moving ahead, The Cedars will soon add a pub bar to give residents a spot where the can gather with friends and family over snacks, appetizers and beverages in the style of an old fashioned Veterans of Foreign War or Legion club.
The Cedars chef also plans to make appetizer trays for the spot.
“From there, we’ll kind of see what they like,” Nelson said.
