Rita Dehner—A Picture-Perfect Retirement

For Rita Dehner, it was the convenient South Shore location and all the activities that set Linden Ponds apart from other retirement communities. Rita enjoys a six-mile walk on the beach every day before returning to Linden Ponds, where she is involved in folk dancing, line dancing and her new favorite pastime—photography.

'When I moved to Linden Ponds I didn't even own a camera,' explains Rita. 'But a friend of mine who worked in photography as part of his career decided to start a photography club. He encouraged me to join, gave me a camera and became my tutor. Shortly after getting into it, I found that I loved photography.'

Exploring new hobbies and trying new things has become an appealing part of Rita's life at the community. There is such energy and always so much going on,' says Rita. 'I do love it here.'
