My parents have a Village! To you readers, I send the grateful, full-hearted greetings of a daughter of this Village. I have heard much about Avenidas Village over the past years. My folks, Joy and Dick Scott, are active, dedicated members. This spring, I had a chance to directly participate in an Avenidas Village event: the “Look Good, Do Good” benefit show featuring my Mom’s and Molly Agras’ astonishing jewelry creations. I was able to experience firsthand the kind, committed staff and many other enthusiastic Village people who came by to volunteer, shop, visit, kibitz, and celebrate. From this Village daughter’s perspective, I see that my folks’ social world is not shrinking, it is expanding! New connections, good support, new friends, (and reconnecting with old acquaintances), less fear, more expansiveness, and a strong sense of interconnecting community. What a blessing! For our entire family, I say well done, Avenidas Village! Keep up the good work, and thanks!
Join Avenidas Village and start enjoying your life, your way, in your home!
