August 2019 | Endeavor: Highlighting the Happenings at Garden Spot Village

Written by Juanita Fox


Hello and Welcome to Endeavor - Highlighting the Happenings of Garden Spot Village, where you will find abundant opportunities to live with purpose in community.

I’m Juanita Fox, the story teller at Garden Spot Village. 

Today I’m in the community gardens. Well over 100 gardeners tend the 66 garden plots at Garden Spot Village. They fill their gardens with vegetables like tomatoes, cucumbers, sweet potatoes, lettuce, peppers, wildflowers and perennials. The Community Gardens are a busy place in the morning and evening as people take advantage of the cooler weather to tend their plants, share gardening tips, vegetables and flowers and build community. 

Wellness Adventures also offer an opportunity to get outside and build community through shared memories. In August we have a group headed to the Brandywine River to tube, kayak and canoe. If you are a future resident, you are invited to join them! Simply call resident services at 717.355.6000 to learn more and add your name to the list. In September a group is headed to Refreshing Mountain for a treetop tour on the ziplines and in October they are headed to The Shack in Manheim for mini golf. Wellness adventures offer a great opportunity to make memories and build community.

The New Holland Summer Arts Association’s Entertainment in the Park offers quality entertainment in the New Holland Community Park Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday evenings through Labor Day. Upcoming shows include the Den & Terry Duo and Mitch and the Mood Swings. Bring your lawn chair and join us for this popular summer evening event. And, if it rains, the concert goes on – in the Garden Spot Village Chapel. 

August is full of opportunities at Garden Spot and you can find details for the events I mentioned earlier plus everything else that is going on in the August issue of 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, where you will find Abundant Opportunities to Live with Purpose in Community. 

I’m Juanita Fox and I hope to see you soon!
