As you can see, there were a wide variety of on and off campus activities this February. For the off campus trips, transportation is included for all Crane’s Mill residents, and on-campus activities take place in Towne Square, so there’s no need to outside to get to great activities and programs—especially convenient when you have such a snowy month!

In addition to the above, there of course are many “standard” goings on throughout each month, such as the daily exercise classes, Sunday Night Social, Happy Hour each Thursday, religious services, card games, puzzles, morning, afternoon, and evening movies, BINGO, support groups, trips for errands and shopping, movie theaters, and many more ways for Crane’s Mill residents to stay active and engaged regardless of the weather.
