Peter Hansen (left) and Dave Marr teamed up to outfit the new woodshop at Lantern Hill with machines and tools.

The comforting scent of wood shavings. The humming buzz of a table saw. The quiet solitude of concentration in the air. There’s just something about a woodshop that makes you feel at ease. 

That special something is what sealed the deal for Peter Hansen to move to Lantern Hill, the Erickson Living community in New Providence, N.J.

Summer’s high temps can be brutal. But you don’t have to just sit around inside all day. Community members who live at Lantern Hill stay active year-round, regardless of the weather. 

Highland Springs
Andréa McCarther is the new associate executive director at Highland Springs.

Highland Springs
Mica and Bill Sleeper were the first residents of Magnolia Place, the newly opened clubhouse at Highland Springs.

As Bill and Mica Sleeper cut the ribbon at the grand opening of Magnolia Place, their four months of “camping” came to a close.

The couple sold their Lake Highlands house of 37 years in January, sooner than anticipated.

Two days after the grand opening of Highland Springs’ second clubhouse, Magnolia Place, the Highland Springs Chorus treated the North Dallas community to a musical spectacular to remember.

The chorus’s spring concert was the inaugural event in the newly unveiled arts and enrichment center inside Magnolia Place.

Oak Crest
Oak Crest Director of Dining Services Jill Clippinger oversees the Parkville community’s five on-site restaurants.

If you peeked into the kitchen of your favorite restaurant during the dinner rush, you would be amazed at the well-oiled machine operating just beyond your table: prep cooks chopping vegetables, sous chefs sautéing fish and chicken, waitstaff filling drinks and loading trays with beautifully plated entrées ready to be delivered.

A laundry room, ceiling fans, exterior lighting, and Energy Star ratings topped the list of most wanted features amongst both small-home and moderate-home buyers in a 2017 survey by the National Association of Home Builders.

Riderwood offers community members all kinds of opportunities to give back by volunteering. There are volunteers who offer their time inside the community, such as residents who visit their neighbors at the on-site continuing care health services neighborhood.

Bill Harris is one of the new members elected earlier this year to Riderwood’s Resident Advisory Council.

In February, Riderwood held elections to select new members of the Resident Advisory Council (RAC), an important and influential committee that serves as a liaison between Riderwood’s departments and the people who live at the Silver Spring, Md., Erickson Living community.
