Photo Essay: Scenes From a CelebrationThe rain couldn’t dampen the high spirits and fun that accompanied Daniel Pointe’s grand opening December 15.
The celebrations kicked off with a Champagne toast in the theater the evening prior. There, a full house of residents with their family and friends were introduced to the pre-open sales teams who had arrived to help host the celebrations. The daughter of a resident then sang the national anthem.
