The Village Activities Team demonstrates an incomparable degree of energy, creativity and passion for the job. Each building has its own Activities Director, who meets with residents monthly to hear comments, ideas, and suggestions on the overall activities program. The Activities Director then uses this feedback to plan and develop the monthly Activities calendar. The result is a full and diverse program that is continually evolving.
Our 30-acre wooded campus lends itself well to our diverse program. Tried and true outdoor favorites include Sunset concerts, a summertime tradition here at The Village, the lake providing a spectacular backdrop to the renowned musicians who perform, seasonal boat rides on Waterman Lake, and our competitive bocce tournaments. Seasonal events like the New Year's Celebration, Valentine's Ball, St Patty's party, Spring Fling, Mardi Gras Festival, Southwestern BBQ, Fall Festival and Classic Car Show, and Holiday Gatherings are just some of the opportunities residents have throughout the year to get dolled up and kick up their heels. Annual art exhibits, live performances in all genres of entertainment, and regular theatre outings are just some of the ways residents remain culturally and artistically active.
And of course we love our trips! Village outings to area attractions, local hot spots and favorite eateries are a regular part of the monthly Activities calendar. Recent trips include: Battleship Cove; Bay Queen Cruise; day trip to the Berkshires to see the Norman Rockwell Museum; Beavertail in Jamestown; Point Breeze Restaurant, Southland Cruise; Tall Ships in Newport, Foxwoods Casino; Mohegan Sun Casino; Twin River Casino; Providence Performing Art Center, Rhode Island Philharmonic, the Newport Playhouse, Bella Restaurant in Burrillville, Aunt Carries in Narragansett for chowder and clamcakes; Wrights Farm; CCRI to swim; cookouts at Goddard Park, Wallum Lake, Colt State Park, Quaddick Park and Heritage Park; Sturbridge Village; Pawtucket Red Sox; Assembly Theatre; La Salette Shrine; Chelo's; Silver Screen; Crows Nest, Olive Garden, Coast Guard House, Box Seats, Cocke and Kettle restaurant, and Camille's Roman Gardens on Federal Hill.
