The Great Summer Kickoff! A Lifestyle Director’s Perspective

At Traditions of America at Green Pond, the residents are ready for summer fun after their successful First Annual Summer Kick Off Party! Judy Parrey, the Green Pond community’s Lifestyle Director, shares her perspective on what it was like to watch this enthusiastic group of residents plan and prepare their great summer celebration!

From New Neighbors to Old Friends

I call them Young Energetic Seniors – Y.E.S! It’s hard to believe that most of this new community has only known each other for less than 2 years. Together they planned an exciting Summer Kickoff & Homeowner Appreciation Day as soon as they heard their pool was opening on Memorial Day. And, it was planned with perfect synchronicity, as if they had known each other for decades and planning block parties was old hat.

Social Committee Knocks it Out of the Park!

Great ideas started to flow through the Social Committee as they designed Summer Kickoff T-Shirts – the color green of course – and asked their neighbors to donate some fun & interesting baskets to raffle off as a fundraiser.

The Great Summer Kickoff is Here to Stay

Let the celebration begin. Residents volunteered to man the grill, be the DJ, skim the pool, serve the food and clean up afterwards – great teamwork and camaraderie!

Getting the Party Started!
Looking Forward to Summer Fun!

Green Pond Lives Better

Smiles all around that day – gave new meaning to “Live Better!” As Lifestyle Director, I just love seeing our homeowners grow their friendships and create lasting traditions.
