Maris Grove Club Fair Offers Fun and Exciting Opportunities for Just About Everybody

March 22, 2012

More Than 170 Clubs Provide Residents with Chances to Keep Active

GLEN MILLS, PA - Have you ever wanted to join a dance club?  Perhaps billiards is your cup of tea.  What about bee keeping?!  You name a club or activity and Maris Grove may just about have one for the active senior.
The full-service active community showed off a variety of different goings-on to residents, and some members of the public, at the Maris Grove Annual Club Fair.
This event gave seniors the chance to explore the vibrant opportunities that the community offers them to join energetic clubs, exciting organizations and brilliant activities at the community.
Some of the 64 different clubs, which were on display in an expo-style setting, included:
• Line Dancing, Zumba and Ballroom dance classes
• Fitness classes
• Art classes
• The Maris Grove Fishing Club
• The Italian, German and Jewish clubs
• Model Railroad Club
• Computer Club
• Veterans' Club
• Canine Club
And much, much more!
Italian Club President Russ Lombardo said, "I enjoy being a part of a group.  Spending time with a fellow Italians, hearing the language and sharing the camaraderie brings back a lot of memories."
"Helping someone gives me great gratification and makes me feel good," said Frances Bock, who is part of a group of residents that conduct a variety of benevolent activities such as collect food and clothing for the needy.  "Working as part of a group here at Maris Grove to achieve goals of helping others is also gratifying and keeps you busy."
