Jackson Hole is a beautiful place!
MorningStar of Jackson Hole has the opportunity to explore its winter beauty with our Monday Scenic Drives.

Friendly (and Hungry) Neighbors
When we say we build family for life, it includes the broader animal
kingdom. This friendly neighborhood buck decided to join us for dinner,
right outside a resident¹s room. Just as tame as a wild beast can be.
Our ceremonial lighting of the Christmas tree at MorningStar of Jackson Hole was a rousing success. The choir from the Jackson Hole Classical Academy charmed the huge crowd, whose cars lined the street, up and down. Oh, what fun it is to light…and sing…and…be merry!
They Have Their Cake and Eat It Too
MorningStar of Jackson Hole residents enjoyed a wonderful dessert of Tres Letches Cake, compliments of Executive Chef Deb Chavez.
Tiny Town Returns for Another Charming Year
Ruth and Betty, among other MorningStar of Jackson Hole residents, worked with students at Summit High School to refinish elements of East Jackson’s iconic “Tiny Town,” part of the Valley’s holiday culture for the last 50 years. The display will again be set up after Thanksgiving on Moran Street, east of town square. It’s at its glorious best when seen all lit up on a winter’s eve.
Renovation in the New Year for our Already Beautiful Community
With the opening days of 2016 we’ll commence an exciting renovation at MorningStar of Jackson Hole. We offered the town a sneak peek of our design plans at an November event honoring all seniors in the Jackson Hole valley for their tremendous contributions. Guests enjoyed wonderful offerings by Executive Chef Deb.
For the third year, to commemorate Veterans Day, the MorningStar of Jackson Hole residents penned messages to active military men and women through an organization known as “A Million Thanks,” which distributes care packages to military bases around the world. One resident wrote (pictured here): “Your service today to prevent war is every bit as important as ours was to win it.”

A Neighborly Summer Kick-off
When MorningStar throws a party, we don’t want to keep the fun all to ourselves, so we invite far and wide. On June 26 we hosted a Summer Kick-Off for the entire Rafter J Neighborhood, complete with music and pony rides. Another perfect day in Jackson Hole.
On January 1, 2015, our beautiful assisted living community (once “River Rock”) was re-christened “MorningStar of Jackson Hole” upon our adoption by MorningStar Senior Living, a Denver-based management company. We are so excited to be enveloped within its family of communities, knowing MorningStar’s reputation for excellence in service to seniors, a reputation earned over the last 11 years.
The new year will usher in many enhancements to our interior décor, programming and care services, one of the most exciting (to the whole Valley) being the building of an annex of suites dedicated to Memory Care for those with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. Our renovated interior plans include new carpet, fixtures, paint and furnishings in all the common areas. We are improving our theatre and Life Enrichment room; adding a spa bath/therapy room, full bistro and grand piano; and reconfiguring the reception area and offices. Expect a late summer commencement of this exciting project.

Tis’ the Season
You never know what Jim has up his sleeve, but we’re hoping that Banana Santa makes a few more appearances this season!
It may be dreary outside, but that can’t stop us! Hole in one!
Thanks to these ladies, we will have beautiful amaryllis blooms to fill our dining room with color this winter!
Halloween at the Rock
Our residents are the best!! Everyone got into the spirit of Halloween and dressed up for the many trick-or-treaters that came through our doors!
Arlow’s mom caught him reading about River Rock in this week’s Jackson Hole News&Guide. You can be like Arlow by catching up on Connie Owen’s Circling the Square!
Happy Fall Y’all
Busy afternoon at the Rock. Flu shots for everyone followed by your choice of card games, manicures, word games, or chatting by the fireplace!
