A Sampling of Clubs
At Moravian Manor Communities, the Herbal Society is spicing up retirement living in Lititz. Residents Sue Burrell and Lucy Meinsler, founding members of the society, sought to create an herb and edible flower garden for the chefs to use in a variety of dishes served in the Owl’s Nest Restaurant. The resident-initiated collaborative mission also includes providing programs such as how to cook with herbs, incorporate herbs in flower gardens, use herbs in craft projects and more. In addition to zesting up the menu at MMC, the society also is seasoning up the lives of residents who take turns watering and maintaining the garden.
Sue, first an elementary school teacher with a passion for gardening, went to work for True Value Hardware and helped build up its garden-center business. Lucy discovered her passion for herbs while living in Connecticut, where she was a frequent visitor to Caprilands Herb Farm. Sue and Lucy connected at a campus program on herbs, discovered their common interest and the Herbal Society bloomed to life.

In addition to the Herbal Society, other clubs encompass a variety of resident interests, including lifelong learning, contemporary issues, woodcarving, woodshop and performing arts. Residents can also take part in Culinary Council, as well as education and library committees.
A sampling includes Socrates Café (an intergenerational program between MMC residents and students from the Linden Hall School for Girls) and trips to the Fulton Theatre, farmers markets, local museums and historical destinations.
Residents can enjoy golf outings, bocce ball, life writing, biking, hiking, bunco, pool, poker, floral workshops and more.
The on-site SmartFit studio offers a variety of cardio and strength-training equipment. Additionally, residents receive an annual membership to the Lititz recCenter with access to the state-of-the-art fitness center, swimming pools and pickleball courts.
