AMENITIES & ACTIVITIES
Would you be surprised to learn that Penney Retirement Community has no paid Activities Director?
But if you think that means we have no activities, any resident hearing that would burst out laughing! In fact, most residents would tell you that they have a challenge just narrowing down their choices from the myriad of activities and ministries we offer.
At Penney Retirement Community it is the residents themselves who envision, create, manage and raise funds for our vast assortment of clubs, concerts, interest groups, lectures, festivals and travel as well as our many and varied ministries.
From continuing education led by qualified professionals to arts and sports, there are many, many activities to choose from whether you want to learn a new skill or refine an old one.
But the full, rich retired life doesn’t stop there. The other significant area of our activities involves volunteering and ministering to our neighbors right here at Penney Retirement Community, in the surrounding town and even worldwide. Again, it is the residents themselves who have developed these ministries, loving our neighbors and serving their needs. To read a PARTIAL listing of activities including ministries ,CLICK HERE.
Our ministries reach well beyond our campus and they take many forms. You can spot Penney residents ringing bells and collecting donations for the Salvation Army outside local shops each Christmas. Penney residents participate regularly at the community bloodmobile, food pantry and child advocacy program of the court system. A ministry close to the hearts of Penney residents is Seamark Ranch, a nearby Christian foster home and school where residents volunteer in several areas. Residents take part in prison ministries, Quilt for Good, Knit for Good, ESL classes, the Way Clinic, Habitat for Humanity and many other local, national and international ministries.
