Helping Neighbors Stay Connected, Active and Independent as they Age in Place

Village Connections is a non-profit organization serving members age 50 and over who live in several adjacent, historic neighborhoods of Columbus, Ohio including 
German Village, Schumacher Place, The Brewery District and much of Merion Village and Downtown. We strive to create a supportive community that allows our members to stay connected, active and independent as they age, while remaining in their homes and neighborhoods. We provide vetted volunteers, from the neighborhoods we serve, to assist members with rides to the doctor, grocery shopping, yard clean up, light home maintenance, etc., and provide a social outlet to avoid being isolated in their homes. We have monthly lunches, social events and outings to help our members reengage and thrive in the villages they are such an important part of.

Member Bill Boys is an amateur publisher. Every month he shares a series of one-page stories he collects, edits, and publishes from his home in German Village, and sometimes he shares a personal newsletter, too, about himself and his wife, Ruth, and their pets.

We love reading these and want to share them with you too!
