While the temperatures in South Jersey will soon be cooling down, the degree of anticipation at the Summerfields West 55+ community in Williamstown is already heating up. From great social get-togethers, dancing, painting, movie nights and game nights, to BYOB happy hour events, terrific trips and much more, Summerfields West encourages, embraces and enhances residents’ participation in community activities, no matter what the homeowners’ recreational interests may entail. It all begins at the community Recreation Center, which is planned to be rebuilt into an all-inclusive Grand Clubhouse.
Such community involvement fosters the friendly neighborhood atmosphere that distinguishes Summerfields West from other adult communities as much as its affordably priced homes and exceptional location. In September alone, homeowners can attend a movie night with popcorn included, of course, featuring the hit film, Last Vegas, starring academy award winners Robert DiNero, Morgan Freeman and Michael Douglas. A Line Dance Night, at which homeowners can learn the popular “Cupid Shuffle” and “Electric Slide,” will also take place at the Recreation Center. A special Craft Night when attendees can make a fall wreath and burlap wall piece for their homes is chance to get homeowners’ creative juices flowing.
Trudi Clark, the full-time Activities Director at Summerfields West, explained how the opening of the Recreation Center earlier this year has brought homeowners together. “At Summerfields West, we believe that developing new friendships among homeowners is as integral a part of the active adult life lifestyle as securing a beautiful new home in a serene location. We responded to our longtime residents with a Recreation Center that reflects much of what they envisioned as an activities facility. Just as important, is how the many newly arriving homeowners are taking advantage of all the possibilities this facility has to offer. Best of all, the Recreation Center will be transformed into a Grand Clubhouse that will serve as a true community centerpiece.”
Clark cited examples of how, from the very start, the Recreation Center has enabled interesting and invigorating lifestyle experiences for residents. “During the summer, we had a community photo contest, whereby homeowners took pictures with their smart phones or digital cameras, submitted them, and became eligible to win cash prizes, as well as have the pictures they took posted on the recently updated Temple Companies website; which also features numerous photos and a comprehensive video depicting the remarkably fulfilling lifestyle at Summerfields West.” The Temple Companies is the developer of Summerfields West.
Among other summer events was a community Get-Together highlighted by a “gourmet” barbecue dinner enjoyed by everyone. “We carefully plan each of our monthly Get-Togthers–along with all of our events–to provide an unforgettable
experience for our residents,” Clark noted.
Summerfields West is one of the most popular and affordable active adult communities in South Jersey. A Pinelands location that is accessible from anywhere provides the bucolic community locale, and a choice of 6 home designs delivers the spaciousness and carefree living more active adults prefer.
