Flushing House Resident, Vera Polak celebrated her 100th birthday with friends, family and neighbors on the Flushing House Rooftop. Vera smiled ear to ear as ‘Happy Birthday’ was sung to her before blowing out her candles. The culinary staff created a special menu just for her party that day. Vera has been a Flushing House resident for over 8 years and is one of several centenarians residing here. Vera can often be found soaking up the rays and taking in the view from our rooftop or busy creating in the lower level Activities Center. Happy Birthday Vera!
