Crestwood Village North is an adult-only community. I think the age requirement is 62. They have studios, one-bedroom, and two-bedrooms, then I'm in a building where I pay my light bill, but it depends on which building you're in, whether you pay for it or not. It has a leasing office in it, and there is no food service. We have a bus that takes us to the grocery store and places, and we do all kinds of activities, like card playing, different games such as corhnole and bowling. It's just a friendly community.
Today, we're having Christmas in July, day. It's like a white elephant, where you take something that you've received as a gift that you haven't used or didn't want or need. You wrap it and then you take it down and we draw our numbers, and when your numbers are called, you get up and pick out something on the table. It's just a fun activity. We're having snacks and they decorated our lobby with a few of the Christmas decorations that we normally have in December. We also have a kitchen here that we can use for family members if we want to have a family party. There's a library that's got all kinds of books that would interest people, a computer, coloring classes, and a bridge club. There are three buildings on our campus and I think one of the buildings even has a sewing club.
I have a huge, huge one-bedroom and I pay $858 a month, which I think is great, compared to what I've seen online. I've got a laundry facility right outside my door and they've got elevators in our buildings. They got everything we needed, except the vending machine. That's one thing I wish we had that we can use when it's late at night and you're craving something sweet. They've also actually arranged a trip in October to Branson, Missouri. So, we do things like that again, now that the pandemic's over. We go to see movies, then they'll take us on the bus to go out to eat usually once a week, and they just offer a lot for people who want to do things. We have a recreation area as well that we can go work out in. I would like to see a swimming pool though.
The staff is very friendly. We have a director, a leasing agent, a residential coordinator that plans most of the activities, and a maintenance crew, who was here today. One of the gentlemen's apartments didn't have any electricity going in and he was here right on the spot. They also keep the grounds beautiful. I just had a lot of complaints about one person from the staff. I went three times and complained about it, but they've not done anything. The person just finally quieted down.
