It’s a sunny Wednesday morning and several neighbors have stopped by “The Great Perk” — a weekly breakfast social at The ‘Mark — for a cup of coffee and lively conversation with one another. After a while, another resident drops by with the newest member of the community, a month-old little girl. The group erupts into a chorus singing “It’s a baby!” and suddenly the lively conversation gives way into friendly competition to be the first to hold the precious bundle.
We have a saying around here that community is about more than bricks and sticks. It’s about heart and soul. And it’s moments like these that capture Community Life at Eastmark.
While “Community Life” may be tricky to define, we know for certain four elements must be in place for the Community Life magic to work. These are the four core values: spirit, trust, reciprocity, and collective memory.
When we speak of spirit at Eastmark, we’re talking about the creation of a unique culture based on an authentic care and concern for one another. It’s about creating a community that inspires its residents to achieve and celebrate their greater purpose in life.
Instilling a friendly and synergistic spirit begins from the first moment a new resident moves into the community. A playful “welcome home” kite invites you to play outside and meet your neighbors. Patio Parties create a spirit of connectedness by developing social ties.
In time, those initial social ties meld into cemented bonds. A friendly wave hello to your neighbor turns into an offer to take him to the airport. It’s the spirit in which neighbors look out for one another in times of need, or celebrate life’s many milestones whether it’s the birth of a new baby, or the life of a dear neighbor who passes away too soon.
We invite you to visit our growing community to experience this vibrant spirit for yourself. And check back for our next blog about how our core value of trust is expressed at Eastmark.
