Visitors are required to sign in and out in the Visitors Log. You and your visitors are always welcome to enjoy many of the amenities offered at the Community. Visitors can purchase meal tickets, as well as enjoy special activities. Occasionally a minimal fee to attend outside events is required.
We will always be happy to assist you with "special occasion" arrangements with reasonable notice. Residents may reserve an area of the Community for a private party and catering services are available if you so desire. Please see the activity director to
