Happy 4th of July!!

Summer has officially arrived!!! All of us in the community look forward to the start of summer because the pool is open, fun outdoor events such as the ice cream social and Fourth of July parties are coming up, and so many beautiful colors are out in full bloom.  We mark the start of summer with our annual pool party and picnic.   Everybody gathers in the community building or out by the pool and we relax and enjoy the camaraderie along with some traditional summer fare. 
Not only do we get to enjoy chatting with old neighbors, but we also get to meet the new people that moved in over the winter.  We bring our favorite summer dishes to share and try new creations as well. I was reading my favorite magazine called “Taste of Home” and they had a whole section of Patriotic Desserts that are perfect for July 4th. Here is a link that will take you to all sorts of great ideas for your celebration, just click on Taste of Home: Flag Recipes.  My contribution will be to make the “Patriotic Pizza”.

I almost forgot my other favorite part of the July 4th celebrations is watching the great fireworks display in town.  It really makes me feel like a kid again!

Have a Happy & Safe July 4th!

Happy Fourth of July and Welcome to Summer!

The summer really seems to fly by once the Fourth of July has come and gone.  May’s Memorial Day Weekend can be considered the unofficial start of summer even though the Summer Solstice on June 21st is the official start of the season.  The pace of summer with its outside activities, vacations, picnics, parties, family gatherings for graduations and weddings happily crowd our schedules.

Time, one of the most valuable commodities of all, is at a premium in the summer.  Finding or making more time give us an advantage to enjoy the expanded list of past times available to us.  If we have less to do in and around the house, it can be to our advantage.

Give consideration to where your time is going especially for those routine and required chores that must get done.  If you are enjoying the free time you have you’re doing it right!  If you are feeling increasingly burdened by your current home and yard, it may be time to start thinking about moving to a more accommodating and more leisurely lifestyle.  A smaller, more modestly sized and one-floor home will give you more opportunity to pursue your dreams.  Why stay weighed down with the drudgery of excessive house maintenance when there are more satisfying ways to live?

We hope you can get more out of life and really enjoy the good times this summer with family and friends.  Happy Summer to you all!

All Age JENSEN communities®

Most people know that Jensen’s owns and manages manufactured housing communities for people 55 and over.  This market niche evolved from the desire of customers to live in communities without young children and around more people their own age.  Smaller one floor homes, and yards that provide privacy and independence are perfect for those ready to shed the too big house and laborious yard while still enjoying the American Dream.
It may be a best kept secret that Jensen’s also has several communities for people of all ages.  These communities still have the same quiet and low maintenance lifestyle that our 55 and over locations enjoy but allow people of any age group to take advantage of the benefits.  Small homes and yards are also great for small families of all kinds with neighbors of all ages to get to know and help each other.
Those of any age can check out our five New Hampshire communities in Nashua (River Pines), Concord (Crestwood), Tilton (Hemlocks), Lebanon (Hannah Village) and Dover (Farmwood Village) as well as our all age communities in Cambridge MD (Southside Landing) and Aiken SC (Crossroads).
In this day and age, it pays to have a house that complements your family size and lifestyle.  A home in a Jensen all age community may be just right for you and your family.
