Penick Village

July 9th – PENICK VILLAGE
Phil Martinello and Julie Tampa from Penick Village www.penickvillage.org, join Bill Sahadi of Fore Properties to talk about the Continuing Care Retirement Community industry. (CCRC). Only a 10-minute drive to Pinehurst and within walking distance of downtown Southern Pines, Penick Village is neighbors with the Weymouth Center and Weymouth Woods Sandhills Nature Center. Penick has changed dramatically over the past two years, adding seven stand-alone single family homes with two-car garages from 1800 to 2600-square feet, a new community center which they call the Village House, and a new Woodlands Apartment building with 69 apartments from 700 to almost 1900-square feet. In their 47 year history, they have seen many changes in retirees, and they are working diligently to keep up with those changes. They are becoming a Center for Healthy Aging, promoting fitness and wellness of body, mind, and spirit.

The Village House hosts 4 dining venues: formal dining, informal dining, a private dining room, and a pub complete with a billiard room. Several activity rooms, a library, a movie theatre, a hair salon and the Grand Hall which seats 300 people round out the space.

The research shows that we can age successfully when we exercise our bodies, minds, and spirits, and Penick Village is implementing programs to help residents in each of those areas. Providing residents on-site exercise classes and a membership to FirstHealth Fitness and Wellness Center as well as golf at area courses, bringing in speakers on various topics, coordinating book clubs, and other learning opportunities, they are on the cutting edge of providing choice to residents in Moore County. For additional information call Penick Village 910 692-0386.
