There is so much to be thankful for at HVE. While many went out for dinner, those who stayed enjoyed a marvelous evening.

We celebrated the holiday with a delicious turkey dinner with all the “fixins”, by candlelight, with wine in hand & live music in the air. But most importantly, we celebrated it together with our residents, their friends & family.

CAROLINE BOLDING – Artist & Sculptor at Holiday Villa East



A little bit about the Instructor:
Ms. Bolding is involved in community service with children’s and senior’s activities. Born and raised in Southern California, sculptor/artist Caroline Bolding grew up amid the strong influence of the arts and entertainment industry. Out of a longing for something deeper than the surface reality of canvas, she fell in love with the life contained in clay expression. Trained under various makeup legends such as Walt Disney Studio’s Executive Artist Robert Schiffer, Caroline further developed her sculpting through spiritual research and discipline.
