20 years celebrating community

Each day, Greenspring fulfills its motto, “sharing our gifts to create a community that celebrates life.” Next month, the Erickson Living community in Springfield, Va., will recognize its twentieth anniversary with a full week of celebrations in honor of this important milestone.

“When looking back over the last 20 years, what stands out most are the people, each individual, who, in their own unique way, make Greenspring the vibrant community it is today,” says Executive Director Chandra Kumar.

Gearing up for November 8

For the politically minded, 2016 is a prime year to move to Lantern Hill. The pioneers who have been moving to the Erickson Living community in New Providence, N.J., since July have the opportunity to create clubs based on their interests—including political interests.

In March, Lantern Hill Executive Director Patricia Swan hosted a meeting for more than 70 pioneer residents to discuss how to organize and launch resident-driven clubs.

Gearing up for November 8

Regardless of their political differences, one thing both the Republican Club and  Democratic Club of Cedar Crest have in common is that they encourage people of all ages  to vote. 

The community of about 2,000 residents is one of Pequannock Township’s 12 precincts. On-site voter registration and polling add a higher level of convenience to living (and working) at the Pompton Plains, N.J., Erickson Living community. 

Political influence

As the U.S. presidential campaign season kicks into high gear, the politically active retirees living at Riderwood, the Erickson Living community in Silver Spring, Md., will no doubt pay close attention to the races.
