Community News

     Utter this word, from Scandinavia, to dismiss the grey, cloudy moods hovering over us during a snowless winter thus far. It’s like hakuna matata, but means a pool or puddle, so stop such dampening thoughts and images from sneaking into your days here at Four Seasons at Elm Tree!
     As a very active over-55 community, residents may choose from a wide variety of things to do, all quite welcoming to any of us. Regular monthly events are easy to check on our website’s calendar, and seasonal choices are described well in the newsletter. Times, dates and places can be accessed easily and quickly.
     The Valentine’s Dinner highlights February, with Random Acts of Kindness Day on the 17th, which is what seems to occur here very often! When we give to others, our endorphins kick in, giving us a natural “high” feeling as we help a person, an animal, or the planet! Activity groups, such as the Book Club, cards’ and games’ players, exercise buddies, men’s and women’s lunches, may attest to this readily. Camaraderie begets quality friendships, even more important than the quantity for our physical and mental health.
     Be stimulated watching the super Snow Moon on February 9, plus the Antares rocket will be launched and can be sighted that evening, carrying more cargo to our International Space Station. But, even earlier, celebrate the astronomical half way point on the 2nd, when we recognize the mid-point between the winter solstice and the vernal equinox! Yay!
     Year of the Rat fortune cookie says: “Enthusiasm is contagious. Not having enthusiasm also is contagious”.
