Image of quotation marks     I felt I had lost touch with my neighborhood and community after working full time. TVIH provided me with many opportunities to meet, reconnect with what is going on in Howard County, and  find avenues for volunteering and feeling productive. TVIH is a very engaged and active group of people who LOVE living in Howard County.  It has made my transition to retirement a breeze. ~Patty B. 

My thanks to the volunteers for responding to my requests.  I'm so grateful and thankful we joined.  Not just for the help, but also for the social experiences and being with so many interesting, diverse, and absolutely amazing people.  It helps make growing old so much richer in spirit.  We look forward to meeting everyone in time. ~ Lynn & Gary 

I love the concept of older people working together to address the challenges in their lives. ~ Kim 
I like the community, and the assistance from other members. ~ AT

I realized as I approached retirement that I did not have friends my age nor had I any idea as to what I was going to do!  I knew about The Village, as I volunteered in 2015-2016. But it went wayside with work and such. So, I joined The Village, have made friends and attend fulfilling activities. I look forward to a long relationship with TVIH.  ~ John M.                                                                                                     Image of quotation mark in red

I feel compelled to tell you and others that TVIH has improved my quality of life. ~ Catherine

I joined for companionship and meeting smart, positive, and problem-solving people. ~ Mary

I like the concept of reciprocity during the aging process, and I have discovered that warm and interesting people share my view. ~ Ellin

TVIH helped me keep my equilibrium during COVID.  The Village was thriving when most organizations were shut down. I was very impressed with all that was offered via Zoom by a group of super seniors. 
Thank you fellow Villagers! ~ Susan S.

I am interested in staying in my home and meeting interesting older people with various backgrounds. ~ Mary Ann

“Age in Place” is a good concept.  I like to meet new friends. ~ Jane

I love TVIH because of the programs offered.  One is the Meditation Series.  Fran's meditations inspire the mind, body, and soul.  She creates a community and artistically and creatively teaches us .  We relax to meaningful content, amazing music, beautiful PowerPoint, guided imagery and restful, silent meditation.  Fran's sessions are a gift to The Village. ~ MPD
