The Orchards at CrabappleOne of the many benefits to living at an active adult community built by The Orchards Group is the amount of opportunities residents are given to not only spend time together, but to also come together to give back to their community and the nation. Most recently, homeowners at The Orchards at Crabapple, an active adult community from The Orchards Group in Roswell, collected items to send to our troops overseas.

    In just three short weeks, homeowners collected over 23 cartons worth of supplies for the troops. These supplies were delivered to the Alpharetta American Legion post 201 before being shipped overseas.

    “Our community, the first development built by The Orchards Group back in 1998, is filled with generous and patriotic residents. It was amazing what we collected; we even had to fill the back of one neighbor’s truck to deliver everything!” said Tom Siracusa, homeowner and organizer of the efforts.

    This is not the first time that The Orchards at Crabapple has banded together to collect items. Our efforts were so successful back in 2009, that we decided to do it again this year.

    “It is great to know that groups in the states still recognize the sacrifices of the troops and continue to support them,” said Adam L. Mortensen, lieutenant colonel for the U.S. Air Forces and Program H Mission Commander.

    If you’re thinking that living at one of The Orchards Group’s active adult communities would be the right fit for you, be sure to check out The Orchards of East Cherokee in Woodstock and The Orchards of Brannon Oak Farm in Cumming. Both offer low-maintenance lifestyles with plenty of amenities, community service opportunities and activities.
