Village members can log in to the members-only section of our website or call the Village to access a list of Service Providers that has been compiled based on recommendations from our members.
Service Providers will be people and businesses which members have depended upon for many years. We hope to cover a range of service categories, including but not limited to: Attorneys, Carpet Cleaning, House Cleaning, House Sitting, Pet Care, Handymen, Hearing Aids, Eye Care, Roofers, Gutter Cleaning, Window Washing, Tiling, etc.
We plan to set up discounts with many of these providers to our members.
See the "Upcoming Events" on the Home page, or our "Event Calendar" menu for all the activities planned for the Village. They include a Drum Circle, Tai Chi, Historic lectures and tours, trips to the Met in NYC. We're always looking for new ideas and programs.
