Community Life

The Woodlands of Columbus celebrates its residents with special activities, seminars and more throughout the year that bring our community together.  Intergenerational programming and family nights encourage residents to invite their loved ones to participate within the community. Our residents join with local senior center attendees for activities and take part in a number of seasonal activities including Columbus Clippers’ games, Buckeye Lake boat tours, Lynd’s Fruit Farm apple picking, picnics in the park and Christmas lights driving tours. We also offer a wide range of musical entertainment onsite. Residents, family members and friends can keep track of all of our daily, weekly and monthly happenings, find out how to get involved in our activities, see photos from past events and get the latest news from our community by checking here.

FEBRUARY ACTIVITY FUN!

We have a ton of fun things planned for February. Please feel free to come join us for any activity!

Show support for the women in your life on National Wear Red Day, Feb. 1st, by wearing red, and join the thousands of women who are choosing to reduce their personal risk for heart disease. Heart disease is the number one silent killer among women. Help us raise awareness and support this effort.

We will televise the Super Bowl in the Activity Room on Sunday, Feb. 3, at 6:30 p.m. Light refreshments will be served. For residents choosing to watch from their apartments, it will be televised on CBS, Channel 10.

Come dip some delicious treats in the Chocolate Fountain on Feb. 6th with Sheila from Kindred Hospice. Everything is better covered in chocolate.

You are cordially invited to join us for our Valentine’s Day Celebration on Friday, February 15th, with special entertainment provided by none other than “Michael Rose.” Voting will take place during the first two weeks of February to nominate our King and Queen.

Make a bird feeder your feathered friends will love: Spread peanut butter onto a bagel, covering it completely, then roll it in birdseed. String a piece of yarn through the hole so you can hang it outside a window and watch birds enjoy the feast. Join us as we make our very own bagel bird feeders on Wed., Feb. 27th in the activity room.
