Kenny’s Pond Retirement Community resident Delores Cahill crossed an item off her bucket list this week: lunch with actor/comedian Mark Critch.

Through a project with the community staff, residents compiled a list of wishes, which staff then did their best to fulfil.
Critch showed up for the date in a suit and carrying a bouquet of flowers, and the pair enjoyed their lunch at a table overlooking Kenny’s Pond. Later, Cahill gave him a tour of the St. John’s residence.
“It was unbelievable what a beautiful experience this was, and how memorable this will be for Delores Cahill,” said Michelle Collins, the community’s manager of marketing and community relations, in an email. “This is a day we won’t soon forget at Kenny’s Pond.”
Critch had a good time as well.
“Delores was as charming as she is lovely and the staff were so welcoming,” he said. “Best date I’ve ever been on, and I’ve had over three dates in my life!”
Other items on the residents’ wish list include getting a tattoo, having a professional photo shoot, and an aerial tour of St. John’s.
