NOVEMBER 2009
Tricks, treats and tons of fun were had at our Halloween Bash.  Our owners dressed in their Halloween best and shared some treats with grandkids and great-grandkids that made the rounds trick-or-treating.  Fun, games and lots of laughs were heard as we spied each other costumes. You never feel old when you act young!

Signs of Summer abound at Gramercy Park!  And the change in season has brought a lot of new faces to the cooperative.  In the past few months we've seen several of our residents move-out, however, because of the huge demand from our waitlist we've seen those units fill quickly and are enjoying meeting and learning about our new neighbors.  

We saw first hand an example of that demand during our last, very successful, waitlist coffee.
 With standing room only we had to pull out more tables and put them in the fireside room... and the unit we had for sale sold during the open house!

This Spring we enjoyed two more great get-togethers - a Pasty Supper, featuring Dexter Larson's famous pasty's, was attended by about 70 people and a Friday morning brunch with an awesome egg bake!

Coming up on Friday, June 19th - our Annual Meeting. We'll be electing our new board of directors while we enjoy Arnie's famous Chicken Barbecue and the return of Pinewood Landing - an absolutely entertaining bluegrass band.

Gramercy Park is excited to announce that we've joined the Duluth Chamber of Commerce and will be attending Chamber 101 on May 28th.  The Chamber should bring us many opportunities to share how wonderful cooperative living can be and generate more recognition for our property.

Our former Director, Kim, has sweetened things up with a new puppy named Sugar.  She's the cutest little Springer Spaniel, only 10 weeks old and she get's along with her "big brother" Lucky, just fine.

Happy New Year! With lots of fluffy white snow outside a cozy fire burning in the lobby we had a joyous holiday season at Gramercy Park.

We kicked off the holidays with our Waitlist Coffee on December 10th. About 20 people braved the cold to visit our location and enjoy our Christmas coffee.  We enjoyed meeting them and are currently planning our next Waitlist Coffee event on April 29th.

With the new year, we've added some new activities!  For those with an adventuresome spirit we've added monthly shuttle trips to Black Bear Casino, in our first trip on January 12th, we had 20 people hit the slots -- one of them winning over $200 on a penny machine! Others had luck as well. 

We also started hosting AARP sessions on a monthly basis, called 55 Alive and is only for Duluth residents. Taking the sessions helps to lower your insurance premiums, more than 23 residents participated in the first meeting.  The instructor likes our place so much, he's planning on getting on our waitlist.  Sessions will take place on the second Monday of each month from 9am - 1pm.

We recently welcomed a furry new member to our Gramercy Family - Our Manager, Kim, brought her new puppy, Lucky to meet and greet us! Lucky is a Coton de Tulear, and we sure had fun watching him check the place out.  His fuzzy white coat reminds us that winter is just around the corner and his jolly demeanor puts us all in the holiday spirit!

Our September Open House was a great success! We met many prospective owners who were added to our waiting list, shared some treats and raved about what fun we have here at Gramercy Park Duluth. The Hermantown Star was on-site to interview and check out our home, and better yet - our vacant unit sold!

Coming soon...
One of our resident photographers, Mary Milbrath, took a GREAT picture in our backyard, by the pond.  She captured a Blue Heron gulping down one of our orange goldfish - what a shot!  Check back, we'll be posting it soon!

Welcome to the new Gramercy Park Duluth website!
We're so excited to be able to share our community online and hope you enjoy looking at our pictures, hearing about all the fun we have here and learning about what an incredible opportunity Coop living is for active seniors over 62!

Through the process of preparing this website for the web, I've learned just how much our residents enjoy the lifestyle our community provides - whether they are looking for a grand social experience or just a private place to call home, our residents have found it all. Check out our testimonials to hear what everyone has to say.

Putting together our website isn't the only fun we've had this month. We kicked off August with a Gramercy Potluck (we've got some great cooks living here!). Our Gramercy Room is the perfect location for a big gathering. We shared fun, food and a whole bunch of laughs! You can check out the photos to the right- no one left hungry!

We've also had a couple members start a new Poker Group - these high-rollers are in it for fun - only $3.00 to ante up - and one of the big winners left with $4.35! Everyone loves a little friendly competition and we love that our residents start activities that anyone can enjoy. You'll find everything from a weekly Happy Hour to Wii Sports and a number of annual events like our Hobby Fair to either participate or just watch from the side lines.

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website. We hope you'll consider being our neighbor!
