Residents at Active Adult Communities Create their Perfect Lifestyle

The Orchards Group’s metro Atlanta active adult communities, The Orchards of Brannon Oak Farm and The Orchards of East Cherokee, are unlike most other active adult communities. Normally, active adult communities have a Social Director that organizes all of the activities and events for homeowners to participate in. Striving to be different and make homeowners happier, The Orchards Group took a different approach by allowing homeowners to offer their input on the activities and events that are taking place. 

This idea that allowing homeowners to take responsibility for their own lifestyle makes them more involved in the community proves to be doing well at The Orchards of East Cherokee, located in Hickory Flat. Residents have been very involved in the planning events and activities, as their community has expanded in the past year, so have the events. For instance, their monthly Meet and Greet dinner has grown from being held once a month to three times! New social groups and events have also been a product of the growing community, including a Saturday night themed party, men’s coffee gathering, ladies lunch outing, craft club, book club and game days.

But how do all of these adults with varying interests get along? Mitch Block, sales and marketing director for The Orchards Group, sees the differences as a positive. “As more people purchase homes and move in to the communities, they bring with them more and more personal interests,” Block says. “Because of this, we are seeing a growing use of the clubhouse, which is exactly the intention. Hopefully, we will continue to see new groups created, such as card groups or even movie groups.”

With so many activities and outings to choose from at The Orchards Group’s two communities, residents have the option of participating in as many or little events as they choose. And if they can’t find the perfect social group or event for them, they can create it!
