The Shenandoah Valley Lyceum provides intellectually diverse, continuing education opportunities for VMRC residents and staff and also members of the surrounding communities. The Lyceum attracts speakers and performers from all backgrounds and areas of study for educational lectures and performing arts. It is funded in part by the VMRC Shenandoah Valley Lyceum Endowment established to honor Karl and Millicent Stutzman. For program and ticket information, call 540-564-3625.
For some seniors, retirement is synonymous for golf. VMRC offers a recreational golf club April through October, taking advantage of some of the most scenic courses throughout the Shenandoah Valley. Contact our Wellness Center for membership details and tee times, (540) 574-3850.
There's also an annual golf tournament which benefits Memory Care at VMRC. The 2012 event made over $30,000 thanks to the support of our business sponsors and the 122 golfers who participated. The 2013 tournament is scheduled for July 19 at Heritage Oaks Golf Course. For more information, contact Janice Rhodes at 540-437-4306 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
There's never a dull moment at VMRC if you like sports. You’ll find someone always interested in golf, lawn bowling, shuffleboard, billiards or one of a variety of sports on the Wii gaming system.
