Active adult living at any of the communities built by The Orchards Group offers residents a chance to simplify their life, but still have a purpose. In fact, the active adult homeowners at The Orchards of Crabapple in Roswell recently worked together to collect items for our troops overseas.
In just three weeks time, these homeowners collected more than 23 cartons of supplies for our troops that were sent overseas by the way of the Alpharetta American Legion post 201.
"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.
However, this year's drive was not the first of its kind. Back in 2009, community residents had hosted an equally successful drive.
"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.
