December 2019

Our Life Enrichment Staff are constantly brainstorming ideas to bring a vibrancy of activities to the residents who call Woodridge their home. Keeping in mind our cultural diversity, we offer a wide-variety of programs such as Broadway Tonite!, Dinner and a Movie, our annual PumpkinGlo, Spring Formal Dance with Norwich Cadets, visits with Miss Vermont and Miss Outstanding Teen Vermont, and our Summer Carnival. We offer community outings, from picnic trips to our picturesque beaches, lunch aboard the Spirit of Ethan Allen, and explorations of local museums, to just shopping, bowling or lunches out at favorite restaurants. We’ve established relationships with local Veterans organizations and many of the churches in our communities so that our residents can feel alive and involved.

We are also fortunate to have a wide variety of musicians, local students and community members who come to Woodridge and share their talents, offering a variety of enriching experiences and interactions.

Our Volunteers

Woodridge is very fortunate to have dozens and dozens of volunteers that help run programs such as Monday afternoon Reading Group, Tuesday afternoon Poker, musical performances, and multidenominational religious and spiritual offerings. We also have a core group of dedicated volunteers that help with cooking groups, outings, Bingo, and many of our special events.
