I like the people here as well as the atmosphere. I have the opportunity every day to maintain my privacy or to be with people who enjoy life and with whom I have a mutual interest. We share our travel experiences, shop together, or work and plan together.

I’ve come to the realization that Lodge members truly care for each other. My experiences seems to shoot down the theory that growing older necessarily means growing lonely.
