SpringShire’s Community Advisory Board

SpringShire’s commitment to future residents’ needs and the community in which we serve has brought about the formation of SpringShire’s Community Advisory Board. We had our kickoff lunch on Thursday, April 27 at Rock Springs.

This group of professionals are volunteering their time to learn about SpringShire as well as share ideas about how to reach potential residents.

Our goal at SpringShire is to create not only a premier Life Plan Community but also to become an active and conscientious citizen in this area. We want to be knowledgeable about the local environment and be current about all the wonderful things that are happening in Greenville.

Morgan Lamphere, VP of Marketing provided an update on SpringShire and an outline of the scope of the SpringShire Community Advisory Board. Members are encouraged to participate in marketing events and promotions in the future and to help us with ideas on how to promote the community. SpringShire will host a luncheon twice a year to update the Board on how the community is progressing.

Here’s what some Advisory Board members have to say…

“I am excited to serve on the Community Advisory Board and work collaboratively with SpringShire Retirement Community to inspire their future residents to engage in wonderful opportunities through both SpringShire amenities and the Lifelong Learning Program.”

-Andrew Ross, Coordinator for Lifelong Learning Programs, East Carolina University

“Eastern NC needs a wider array of options for older adults and SpringShire checks all the boxes: choices of housing, from totally independent living to smaller apartments to targeted care. The campus will be lovely, nestled into nature, with amenities designed to promote an active, social lifestyle and a sense of community. I am thrilled to be part of creating this wonderful opportunity in the Eastern NC area.”

-Charlotte-Anne Alexander, Colombo Kitchin Attorneys

We are excited to have this great Advisory Board take part in the development of SpringShire.

2017 Pitt County Business Expo

We are excited to be a part of the Pitt County Business Expo again this year!

SpringShire is proud to be a member of the Greenville-Pitt County Chamber of Commerce who hosted this great event that was open to the public. Attendees were able to preview the businesses and organizations that serve this active community.

Thank you to all the hard work put into making this happen. Those who came to see us Friday got a chance to see our virtual tour and learn more about what is going on at SpringShire.

 

Game on at the Pitt County Senior Games

What a beautiful, sunny Saturday at the Pitt County Senior Games. We enjoyed the Lighting of the Senior Games Torch and a presentation of the Pioneer Spirit Awards.

Seniors from Pitt, Beaufort, Hertford, Martin, and Bertie Counties competed in a variety of events including corn hole matches, a football and softball toss, and croquet. It was a great event to get out and get active!

ECU’s Lifelong Learning Program

SpringShire residents have the wonderful opportunity to participate in ECU’s Lifelong Learning Program.

This educational program is for adults 50 and older who want to continue learning in a relaxed atmosphere, without entrance requirements, exams, or grades. The desire to learn for the joy of learning and personal fulfillment is the underlying feature of this program.

Participants enjoy a wide array of learning opportunities designed to:

  • Stimulate intellectual and cultural learning
  • Promote social interaction and greater understanding of our world, and
  • Broaden horizons in many creative ways

Thank you to Andrew Ross and Dr. Regis Gilman for inviting us to join them in celebrating another wonderful year for the LifeLong Learning Program and welcoming SpringShire as a new sponsor and partner. They celebrated their outstanding volunteers with a cookout, certificates of recognition, and take home gifts provided by SpringShire.

Volunteers include retired professors from ECU and professionals from all around Eastern NC who provide their expertise, time and energy to lifelong learning at any age.

SpringShire attends the Senior Health Fair

SpringShire had the pleasure of exhibiting at the Senior Health Fair at the Greenville Aquatic Center.

We enjoyed speaking with attendees who were interested in learning about retirement options. We were even serenaded by an energetic group of gentlemen donning caps and red suspenders!

A variety of agencies provided materials and information focusing on health, fitness, nutrition and recreation. A free health screening was available as well.

It was a great event for seniors in our community.
