It Takes a Village Week

Residents at The Village at Gettysburg celebrated “It Takes a Village Week” – a celebration of appreciation for team members and residents for their contributions to making the community a great place to work and live. The celebration featured four distinctly themed days: Decade Day, Take Me Out to the Ballgame, Pink Flamingo Day and Beach Day. Residents and team members were encouraged to “dress for the beach” as they enjoyed a delicious picnic lunch on Beach Day. Pink flamingo hair clips adorned some residents on Pink Flamingo Day adding another festive touch. One resident exclaimed, “It’s just like old times!”, as she gathered with friends on the back patio to enjoy a meal together.

Life Enrichment offers a variety of socially distanced activities

The Village at Gettysburg Life Enrichment team is offering a modified socially distanced life enrichment schedule. Check out what activities have been offered so far.



Every second, 350 slices of pizza are sold in the United States! It is a comfort food favorite worth celebrating, as residents and team members at The Village at Gettysburg did on National Pizza Party Day. Tables were covered with checkered red-and-white cloths, Italian music played and the Cura dining team made delicious homemade pizza and salad for residential living residents to take home and enjoy.

Parades to Lift Spirits

Team members across our life plan communities help lift the spirits of residents with parades through their respective villages!



The Village at Shrewsbury hosted a parade at the community, providing an opportunity for team members to greet residents who they have missed seeing since this unprecedented health crisis began in early March. Residents clapped, waved flags, banged buckets with wooden spoons and held signs thanking staff. Team members laughed, honked their car horns, danced and waved. There is something special about a parade that lifts people’s spirits!
