It’s that time of year when many of us resolve to get in shape and shed a few pounds. Those of us at The Manor Group are part of that group of resolution makers and struggle with keeping up with our goals once the first few weeks of January have passed.
A commonly heard excuse for not going to the gym is lack of time. We are all super busy with kids, jobs and Netflix, right? Fortunately, we offer 24-hour access to our fitness center. It’s already free to our residents but we make sure it’s open all the time. No holiday closures or bad weather delays! Plus, if Netflix is still taking up too much of your free time, we provide complimentary WIFI so you can get your binge on while you work your bulge off!
Another way to keep yourself on track is to find a buddy. Racquetball leagues, Zumba classes and weight loss meetings are just a few of the wonderful community activities we have hosted so residents can get help in reaching their goals. Tell us what would help you stay accountable.
We wish you a fit and healthy 2017 and hope your resolutions become good habits. Remember that our pool season is just a few months away!
At Roxalana Apartments we love to decorate the property but even this year’s impressive candy-covered community building can’t top some the holiday light displays in our own backyard. One special tradition for the our team at Roxlana is a visit to the Kermit Tyree Seasonal Store in nearby Elkview. Kermit, and his wife JoAnn, set up the largest displays in the area including a blow-up Santa on a train and a light-up moving carousel. There is even a huge “Peace on Earth” display, with a giant glowing world. It is one of the most impressive light displays around, but to our area it is much more. It has become one of our favorite holiday traditions.
At Roxalana Hills, we consistently strive to explore new ways of giving back to the community. This Fall, we focused on helping those less fortunate by hosting our very own Chili Cook-Off. Our residents competed to see who would reign as Roxalana Hills Master Chili Maker. All proceeds were donated to the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation in honor of Ayden Kohler, one of our own fighting the battle against cancer.
The event went beyond just chili- we offered crafts for the kids, a bounce house and a raffle featuring items from Arbonne, Paparazzi Jewelry, Lula Roe and Cabela’s, to name just a few. Thanks to our community we were able to donate nearly $500.
We are genuinely proud of our residents and what they continually accomplish for society!
The holidays are approaching and it’s a great time to share some of our family traditions. The rental team at Roxalana Hills Apartments looks forward to bringing the residents together each year at the community Thanksgiving dinner. They are already busy preparing for this year’s dinner, planned for Friday, November 20th.
Come hungry because the table will be full of turkey, ham and traditional holiday side dishes. Here’s a sneak peek at one of their favorite recipes, borrowed from Paula Deen!
Please join us for our Open House on Saturday, March 14, from 10-2 and Sunday, March 15, from 10-2.
Roxalana Hills Apartments is hosting a Spaghetti Dinner night to benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. The benefit will take place Friday, September 20 from 6:00-8:00 pm at the Community Building. If you can’t join us at the Community Building but still wish to participate, take-out will be available. Please contact the rental office for more information. We’ve also highlighted the event in our September newsletter.
