Hello Parkwood Friends!
Happy New Year! 2023 is here and we are excited that you have continued to show interest in The Parkwood community!
First, construction. We have officially crossed the 50% completion mark—YEAH! Construction continues, even with the cold weather we are having in South Dakota. Four 1,000,000 BTU and several 400,000 BTU natural gas heaters have been moved indoors to keep our workers and building warm over the winter months of construction. Drywall has officially started. Under-building parking is ready to be poured. Electricians and plumbers are hard at work. Keep checking the “Construction Updates” page on our website and our Facebook page for pictures of this great progress.
Second, opening dates. As we have shared with many of you, our opening date will be early 2024. We are still on target to meet this deadline.
Third, rates. We are getting close to posting our starting rates for The Parkwood. I know this has taken longer than we anticipated. We really appreciate your patience, as many construction prices have changed over the last couple of months. It is important to us that you have accurate information, so look for this information by early February 2023. Once it is released, I will be happy to answer questions.
Fourth, upcoming events. Hopefully some of you took part in our new Transforming Age (TA) Live event on January 10th and learned something new about eating healthier. Look for events like this in the future—hopefully you can join our Transforming Age family. We are also putting together an event to host all of our interested residents. You will be able to meet me and see some neat pictures of our community and our uniquely designed floor plans. Look for information about this event coming soon. We are also setting up an office so you can meet with me individually—I can answer your questions and be a resource for you. Look for information about how to set up these meetings soon.
Fifth, floor plan brochures. Check out our website, Parkwoodlife.com, and you will soon be able to download a FREE floor plan brochure.
Sixth, communications. Hopefully most, if not all, of you have received a phone call or email from me. I have talked to so many wonderful people in the last 60 days. I have talked to people from different states, different countries, different ages, and different stages of life—all interested in The Parkwood. This is awesome and makes me so happy. If you haven’t already, I encourage you to check out our website (Parkwoodlife.com) to see the community updates page, and to like and follow our Facebook page (The Parkwood) for updates. Facebook is a great way for me to send out pictures, updates, and fun trivia questions about The Parkwood, so be sure to check that out each week. If you have a question for me, please remember that I am just a phone call away at 605-975-8500. I would love to talk with you.
If you no longer want to receive these updates, please let me know and I will take you off our interest list. Thank you!
Stay safe and warm,
Your friendly executive director,
