In-Person Event: Why We Made the Leap to RiverWoods Manchester


Wednesday, April 19
10:30 am - 1:00 pm

A Luncheon and Panel Discussion with Residents

Imagine a life without a to-do list. A life where home maintenance, cooking, and cleaning are taken care of. All of this sounds good, but what is that life really like in a community?

Join us to hear from our panel of residents as they tell it like it is at RiverWoods Manchester. This group of active, forward-thinking planners will answer your questions and share what a great fit it could be!


Ann and Karl Hentz – Moved to RiverWoods last year after spending 34 years in Methuen, MA. Ann was a Corporate Trainer and Technical Writer for AT&T. Karl is a Navy Vet who later served as a Technical Rep with Bell Laboratories and sold stock photography as a side hobby. They own a blue-tongued skink named Radagast.

Claudette Leonard – A Manchester, NH native who has many friends and family in the area. She was heavily involved in local figure skating clubs and is always happy to share what her day looks like at RiverWoods.

Elaine and Carl Schmottlach – Moved to RiverWoods from Nottingham, NH about 3 years ago. Carl is quite active in the woodshop and can be found walking or jogging around the campus. Elaine is a retired Librarian who is active on the Library Committee and can be found frequenting the many garden beds on campus.

Diana Spradling – Is a retired professor of music specializing in vocal coaching and vocal pedagogy. Her book, ‘Jazz Singing, Developing Artistry and Authenticity‘ is based on her research in the acoustics research laboratory she founded at Western Michigan University. Diana moved to RiverWoods in May of 2021.

Seating is limited. All guests must be fully vaccinated to attend. A lively Q and A and a delicious luncheon will follow the presentation.
