Bill Fay watches intently as high school student Ria Dave shows him how to use some apps on his computer. Bill was among many Tallgrass Creek community members who spent time with 15 high school students in several “how-to” technology sessions.

Riderwood’s personal moving consultants Diane Thometz and Jennifer Hill say there are several advantages to selling your house during the winter.

Spring is typically regarded as the prime time to sell a house. Winter, on the other hand, has a reputation for being a tough time to sell. But Riderwood’s personal moving consultants, Diane Thometz and Jennifer Hill, say that reputation is undeserved.

Year-round celebrations—both large and small—are easy at Riderwood because of the community's many venues and full-service dining and catering departments.

As much fun as it is to throw a party or prepare a big holiday meal for loved ones, all of that cleaning, planning, grocery shopping, and cooking can have you thinking “Bah humbug!” whatever the season or occasion.

Without the burdens of a 2,000-square-foot house to take care of, Peggy Bent enjoys filling her time with activities like walking, biking, hiking, yoga, swimming, and socializing with friends.

A whole new year stretches out before us filled with promise. Think back over your lifetime to the intentions you’ve set at the beginning of each new year. Even if you’re not one to declaratively set an official New Year’s resolution, chances are you’ve noticed the shift in energy each new year brings.

It’s 9:54 a.m. EST and my computer dings with an incoming email. The subject line reads “GoFundMe site.” 

My heart smiles. Sara Jo Light and her husband Ray Venoski are about to do something phenomenal—again.

‘What can we do?’

Windsor Run
Detective David Bird of the Cary Police Department presents professional tips for preventing fraud. His presentation was part of a monthly program known as the Windsor Senior Forum.

A trip to the mailbox brings an unexpected bill for a magazine you don’t remember ordering. An unsolicited phone call asks for money to help a family member in need. Before reaching for the checkbook, watch out—you are about to become a victim of fraud.
