With the start of May, we’re almost into the summer season! Our Tribe has been working hard to offer our community informative webinars (with even more coming up this month!) and making a difference in our hometown of Johns Creek, GA.
In our May 2021 newsletter, we’re sharing our most recent video community tour—a must-watch—plus all the updates on upcoming events. With each month we see significant progress in our community, and we can’t wait to welcome our residents and families. Until then, don’t forget that we have our Information Center open all week, complete with a full-sized model apartment.
