Linden Ponds resident Franz Wolff and student employee Meredith Veldran were the winners of this year’s spelling bee, which is one of the events that students put on to help raise money for the Scholars’ Fund.

Working as a server in Linden Ponds’ on-site restaurants is an ideal job for local high school students.

Estelle Katz has enjoyed folk dancing for many years. When her husband Sanford taught at a college, folk dancing was offered on campus. That’s where the couple first discovered it.

“It is wonderful exercise and a wonderful social thing to get people together,” Estelle says.

To maintain good health, you know you need to exercise, eat a balanced diet, and stay on top of preventive screenings. But did you know the time you spend playing cards with friends or going out for dinner with other couples could also contribute to your health and longevity?

Family stories can be passed down from generation to generation in conversation, but if you really want to preserve your personal history, you’ve got to write it down. That’s why a group of residents at Linden Ponds meets every other week to share stories they’ve written about their lives.
