Pool Opening at Highland Glen
The recent pool opening at Highland Glen Became a Community Event!
Renovation at Highland Glen Apartments in Scottsburg was completed in May, and the swimming pool had received a face lift as well – a new concrete deck and furniture.
More than 50 residents attended, including a new family who just signed their lease that day; they stopped moving their belongings to see what was going on and meet others in the community.
There were hot dogs and buns donated from Save a Lot, and side dishes and desserts brought from the residents. Some residents even went back to their units to get or make more food. Others made plates to take to seniors who could not join in due to health or mobility reasons, or to neighbors who were just not feeling well. There was so much laughter! The joy in their conversations and voices were overwhelming, and the kids were so excited.
Everyone absolutely loved the renovated clubhouse and new pool furniture. The new residents could not believe that a cookout was actually taking place, and the thought that this event was just one of many we have here had one single mother in tears. When asked why she was crying she replied, “It takes every dime that I make to provide for my children, so we don’t get to do many things. But now to know that I have them in a place like this with an amazing home and a community that provides them so much is just a little overwhelming.”
Since then others have come to see the “new” Highland Glen. The talk in town is that New Hope really cares and that if you want an upscale place to live in Scottsburg, the ONLY place is Highland Glen.
