Community Meals, Deepening Friendships

Read more...In February of this year, residents of Myrtle Terrace decided to start a community meal once a month in their community room.  Together they decide what food they would like to order in.  So far they have had Chinese, Swiss Chalet, pizza, and who knows what they will have next!
It is has been a great opportunity for everyone to get out of their apartments, deepen friendships, and share a meal together.  After a good meal everyone plays a fun, and sometimes competitive, board game!
Future plans include eating on the roof top garden of the apartment building, to enjoy warm summer nights!
