On May 1st, 2016, Karl Senft, a resident at Sanctuary at Bellbrook in Rochester Hills, turned 100 years old. Karl was born in Floss, Germany and moved to the US in 1956. He and his wife had one son and two grandchildren. Karl has resided at Bellbrook for 14 years. He is active in the community and swims at a local pool four times a week.
Karl’s family and the Bellbrook community celebrated in a big way by honoring his heritage. Children from the Carpathia Club (a local German club) performed some traditional German dances for Karl and his guests and an accordion player topped off the afternoon with waltzes and polkas. Some of the residents joined in on the dancing! The celebration was a huge success and was enjoyed by the entire community. Happy Birthday Karl! What a milestone!!
