Not sure how to start? Check out these possibilities.
Dining. Our restaurants are hot spots for social interaction, good conversation, and friendship. If you’re naturally outgoing, having a meal with us will probably mean you’ll meet new people right away. If you’re quieter, that’s OK. Some of our more friendly residents may reach out to you.
Outdoor spaces. There are almost always folks around the gazebo or pool. And if you have a dog, the dog park is an instant way to meet new people—after your pups say hello first, of course.
Planned activities. If you like movies or books or you regularly attend religious services, there are plenty of planned get togethers at Mount Vernon Towers. Check our calendar for upcoming dates.
Online. You can also connect with us and residents through our Facebook page. Check it out here.
And if you still feel like you’re having trouble connecting with people, just ask one of our staff for suggestions. We’ll happily look at what you like to do, and see if we can link you to people who share similar interests.
