An Example of Community at RiverWoods

RiverWoods is located in beautiful northwest Manchester across the street from a 640-acre nature conservancy. Many people choose our community because of the country setting, and proximity to all the best things the city of Manchester has to offer. But people are also attracted to the culture here of friendly people and a true sense of community.

Recently, a large Norway maple near some of the apartments had to be removed because it was beginning to rot and its roots were impacting a ground-floor deck. This particular tree was much appreciated for the birds that came to perch in it, the shade it provided, and the fall color of its leaves.

One of the woodworkers, Carl S., asked the Environmental Services Director to have some of the limbs saved when it was cut down. Carl used the pieces to make some small mementos of the tree: spoons, stirrers, spatulas, etc. to give to the residents affected by the loss of the tree.

To some, this may be just a story of a tree, but we wanted to celebrate residents like Carl who embody a true sense of community in a kind, thoughtful, and gracious way. This is RiverWoods Manchester.
