August 2018 | Endeavor: Highlighting the Happenings at Garden Spot Village
Written by Scott Miller
Hello and Welcome to Endeavour - Highlighting the Happenings of Garden Spot Village.
Welcome to this beautiful Garden. It’s by the main entrance - overlooked by the outdoor seating - of our Refresh Coffee bar - where you can get your favorite Starbucks AND it’s just outside The Harvest Table. It’s features and details like this . . . that set Garden Spot apart. It’s the inspiration of Campus Services Director - Scott Weaver - who was named - Design Champion - by Environments for Aging. Scott has been invited to the - 2019 Environments for Aging Expo & Conference - in Salt Lake City - where he will be recognized at an awards luncheon. Through August - there will be a link on the home page of our website - where you can read the details and his comments about “great good spaces” a hallmark of Garden Spot Communities. Congratulations Scott Weaver.
Speaking of great good spaces - we’d love for you to visit. You can come for lunch or dinner and walk around on your own . . . Or you could join us for a Look & Learn that includes an overview of 50+ living, a lunch prepared by our world class chefs and be shown around by residents. A future resident named Kathy told us, “We met residents on two separate visits who invited us in to see their cottages. One of them suggested that we sign up for the Look & Learn so we would have as much information as possible to make our decision. At the Look & Learn in March we were seated for lunch with a couple around our age that had been here for a year. They told us their story, which involved a lot of property upkeep, and was similar to our situation. We continued to be impressed with the community and before we left we handed in our application.” That is a very common story.
But not only does Garden Spot provide the best 50+ living - we’re involved with initiatives around the world. On August 25th from 6:45 – 8:00 p.m. Ruth Naomi Floyd, a jazz vocalist from the Philadelphia area, will sing, accompanied by Stu Sacks on the piano. A free will offering will be taken during the concert to benefit the Garden - Spot - Village -Travel with Purpose trip – to - CURE Kenya's hospital - in Kijabe this fall. CURE provides free surgery for children with walking disorders. Our teams visit to support the hospital, the families and love on the kids. There is also time to see some sights AND go on safari. People find these Travel - with - Purpose - trips extremely worthwhile and personally fulfilling because you pour into the life of others and experience local culture. They create life long memories.
August is full of opportunities at Garden Spot . . and you can discover them all . . in the Garden Variety . . which we just posted . . on the events page . . of the website.
This has been Endeavor – Highlighting the Happenings of Garden Spot Village.
I’m Scott Miller and I hope to see you around campus. As I always say . . . Life is Good!
