Hunters Woods at Trails Edge seniors enjoy 'international' experience
Armchair Travel Program brings world culture to senior living community
Actually, a part of India's culture was brought to the Reston community through Hunters Woods' Armchair Travel Program. Residents enjoyed an educational presentation by Vilas Mujumdar that focused on India's food, traditions and history.
Mujumdar and his wife are residents at Hunters Woods at Trails Edge in independent living. He previously had presented during the Armchair Travel Program and was so well-received he offered to return to the "stage."
"He provided a great overview on India and it was so popular that he was gracious enough to do an encore presentation for the overflow crowd that couldn't attend the first presentation,"
The Armchair Travel Program is a weekly feature at Hunters Woods at Trails Edge. The program will "take" residents to Ecuador, Afghanistan (Aug. 10), South Korea (Aug. 18) and Portugal (Aug. 25). Previously, the community held nearly 30 Armchair journeys through presentations.
"We welcome people who have ties to a different region to present on the unique cultural differences such as food or holiday traditions,"
"Our residents appreciate the opportunity to learn about a different culture and different traditions,"
Cissy Nickel, Executive Operations Officer
