The Athens Village Annual Picnic Potluck, Thurs July 12, noon to 1:30 p.m.

Come join Village members at the annual potluck picnic at the Lions Picnic Shelter at 90 Connett Rd. in The Plains. This is the same venue as last year, opposite the elementary school. We have invited Dr. Brian Clark of OMNI to join us. He can informally talk with members about OMNI research, and inform us about new research studies for which volunteer participants are needed. If you come, please bring a dish to share with 5-6 others. If you need a ride, or can offer a ride, please let the office know BEFORE July 10. The phone is 740-447-0500, or email TheAthensVillage@gmail.com.

Our Mission:

Enable members to live independently, comfortably and safely in their homes.

Our Vision:

A dynamic, responsive community of members who support meaningful and fulfilling lives for one another.

Research, including that of insurance companies, has shown that people are much better off in their own homes than in assisted living facilities. The Athens Village works with a number of local, regional and national agencies to further the interests of its members.
