July 2017 | 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 July. Can you believe it we’re in the 2nd half of the year - already! Where does the time go? One of the things that the people of Garden Spot Village tell me - is they have more to do and are busier now than when they had full time jobs. The difference is they are doing the things that they love to do! And in many cases they’re having a positive impact on the world around them.
One of the ways THAT happens is by engaging, supporting and touching the lives of young people. Grands & Kids Camp was a huge success again this year but it’s not the only opportunity to engage kids and grandkids. On July 18-20 is the Market Place Vacation Bible School. The theme this year is “Jesus is my Friend”. It’s 3 days of lively activities for kids AND volunteers that crosses the generations. Keep in mind that studies show that there are significant long term emotional benefits that reach way into adulthood for kids that engage grandparents and older generations. It’s open to the grandkids of residents, future residents and the community at large so if you know some kids who needed something to do - sign um up. We’d love to have them.
If you’re a resident, family member or future resident, Future - Resident - Status has it’s privileges, you like Ice Cream and you’re looking for some fun - the annual Ice Cream Carnival is Wednesday July 12.
Our July Look & Learn is Wednesday the 26th. If you haven’t been to one of these it’s well worth it. You get a general overview of “retirement” living options. The ins-and-out of Garden Spot plus you have lunch with residents who give you a tour afterwards. It’s a no-pressure learning event. You get both the “official” story and the “unofficial” story which turns out to be a pretty good picture of life at Garden Spot Village. We’d love you to sign up and come visit.
We just posted the July issue of the Garden Variety on the Garden Spot Village website where you can discover all that is going on this month.
