For many of us, the daily and Sunday comic strips were a favorite feature in the newspaper. It was outlet for quick, bite-sized entertainment for both young and old. It is in that tradition that we've partnered with award-winning cartoonist Gary Varvel to create a series of comic strips to share the fun and engaging lifestyle here at Greenwood Village South. You might even find a few senior living "myths" debunked along the way! We'll also be taking the opportunity to highlight employees who have been awarded for their outstanding service and commitment to residents and other team members here at the community. 

So be sure to look for our new post each week and enjoy as we draw up a little fun and laughter just for you!
