A community cookout at LHP’s Chippington community in Nashville is a huge undertaking for staff any time of the year. The property comprises Chippington I and Chippington II, two high-rise buildings with 212 and 214 units respectively, so there are lots of moving parts, people and ground to cover. Add an occupied rehab to the mix and you have one massive event! But the staff at the Chippingtons are up for the challenge, says Moe Perry, Senior Community Manager.
At a summer kickoff cookout, they spread out the food and the fun over two days and everyone pitched in to help. Maintenance Tech Jay Dewalt grilled hundreds of hamburgers and hot dogs both days, and the residents and staff were gratefull.
“We appreciate everyone’s participation and making both days a success for our residents,” says Moe, adding, “You guys are amazing!” Here’s a photo of Moe’s great team followed by a slide show of the cookout.
Another big community event was held at Imperial Gardens in Smyrna, TN, about 30 miles southwest of the Chippingtons. Staff hosted a ‘Welcome Summer Bash’ and brought everyone together for a fun time over the Memorial Holiday weekend. A local church helped with the event. The kids had a blast playing on the bounce houses, eating pizza and snacks, singing karaoke and swimming. With more than 100 kids in attendance, the event was a huge success. Adults, too, enjoyed the party and mingling with neighbors. What a great way to kick off the summer!
The day after Memorial Day, Evergreen Villas hosted a party and a cookout. The residents played games such as cards, shuffleboard, and checkers and enjoyed a meal of hamburgers, hotdogs, sides, watermelon, and popsicles for dessert.
At Ramblewood Apartments in Clarksville, the property management staff received a sweet surprise–a bouquet of pretty pink roses and baby’s breath from Ms. Johnson, a resident who wanted to brighten their day and workspace. In her note, Ms. Johnson said the flowers were in appreciation of the beautiful renovations–and to add some beauty to their makeshift offices which are full of boxes during the rehab. Community manager Roxanne Davis says the flowers are a welcome sight!
