Setting track on campus

With four miles of trails, Cross-country skiing and snowshoeing are popular ways to enjoy the winter weather here on campus. RiverWoods Exeter residents Steve Swenson, Stu Howkins, Spencer Jackson and Sue Jordan decided to pack down the trails after our recent snow and were kind enough to pause for a group photo at Gooch Park.

Resident Poetry Club Rap Session

The RiverWoods Exeter Resident Poetry Club recently welcomed Ivo Nedyalkov, "Doctor of flow" (fluid mechanics PhD, rapper and faculty member at University of New Hampshire), to host a rap music workshop on campus. If Rap or poetry is not your passion, there are more than 150 different resident committees and interest groups from which to choose.

A night at the Exeter Holiday Parade

Once again the Exeter Holiday Parade was a huge success! The theme was Christmas Movies Through the Decades. The movies we chose were Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer (1960s), A Year Without Santa Clause (1970s), A Christmas Story (1980s), Christmas Vacation (1990s) and Elf (2000s). Resident and staff volunteers from RiverWoods Exeter and our 2018 Gala Partner, Seacoast Family Promise, dressed up as the characters! The RiverWoods shuttle followed the float with residents cheering. We look forward to next year!

When wasThe Silver Tsunami When was the last time you considered “60” as old? Today’s 60- and 70-year-olds are running marathons, starting second careers, and generally bashing the traditional idea of “aging.” Yes, it’s finally happening —our youth-focused culture is acknowledging that there is a lot of life in what many call “the third chapter,” or retirement.

Proving you don't have to be retired to live here...

What does retirement mean for you ?

For RiverWoods Exeter resident, Pat Wall, it means researching, writing, and promoting her third book. LIVES OF CONSEQUENCES: Blacks in Early Kittery and Berwick in the Massachusetts Province of Maine is being published by the Portsmouth Marine Society Press under the auspices of the Portsmouth Historical Society and the New Hampshire Black Heritage Trail. This book’s premier and meet-the-author will take place at the Discover Portsmouth Center, 10 Middle Street, on Friday, August 4 from 5:30 to 8:00 pm.
