News & Notes
November is a month during which many people take time to pause and reflect on the things for which they are most grateful. It’s fitting that on November 11, Veterans Day, we recognize and thank the men and women who served in our armed forces. If not for those brave soldiers, we would not enjoy the many freedoms we have today as United State citizens.
There are many reasons why people choose to live at Coburg Village – bright spacious apartments and cottages; a monthly calendar filled with countless social, wellness, educational, and entertainment programs; our array of services; and the delicious dining, just to name a few. Once they move in, most will agree that one of the greatest reasons to live at Coburg Village is our sense of community. Our active Residents’ Association is one of the reasons for that feeling of community.
Shenendehowa High School junior, Casey Gao, reached out to Coburg Village offering to share her artistic talents. It was decided that our Fitness Center would be the perfect spot for a mural. Casey's mural, which features bright hibiscus flowers and hummingbirds, is her original design. She started the project by sketching out various concepts at home. She wanted to create something bold and colorful, including local flowers and birds. In nature, the hummingbirds would all be just a little smaller than the flower. Casey added some visual interest painting the birds in various proportions.
