Are you a new resident of the independent living community at Hillside Woods I & II Senior Apartments in Delafield, WI? It’s easy to get plugged in, get to know like-minded neighbors, and meet new friends! These are just a few ways you can get social and meet new people: Starting a walking club is one way to build new friendships at Hillside Woods I & II independent living community in Delafield, WI.

1. Start a walking club

Trying to get in your daily 10,000 steps? Chances are you have plenty of neighbors trying to do the same. Why not start a walking club to explore Delafield? You could take advantage of your independent living community's indoor fitness center when the weather doesn't permit. On nice days, take to the sidewalks and make huge strides for your health – while making new friends at the same time! 

2. Knit/crochet as a group

If fiber arts are your thing, gathering a few neighbors with sticks and string is an excellent way to connect. Whether you're working on a charity project, wrapping up your current works in progress, or attempting a new technique, it’s always more fun to do it with others. Take the group to Knitch Yarns, just a block away, for supplies and a hefty dose of fibery inspiration!

3. Lead a book club

If you can't imagine life without a new book every month, why not start a book club? With many seniors at your similar stage of life, an independent living community is a perfect place to read and discuss your latest reads. The Delafield Public Library has a splendid selection, and the community room at Hillside Woods I & II is a perfect meeting place.  

4. Cook together

Do you love preparing new culinary delights in the kitchen? Schedule a group trip to the Delafield Farmers Market for fresh, local ingredients. Plan a menu where everyone can make a course or hold a potluck and enjoy a variety of new fresh, local homemade dishes. 

5. Initiate a chess tournament

For those who relish the feeling of challenge and victory, invite a few neighbors to play a chess match (or another board game). A once-a-week game night with refreshments might be the perfect way to fill in the gaps in your social calendar.
