The Village in Howard begins

    This Saturday November 1st is the open house on the Village in Howard.  No it isn't the newest 55+ housing or a retirement community.  In fact it isn't a place but a concept of supportive social network for Howard County residents over the age of 55.  The growing older population is something that you can see in many ways these days in Howard County.    Housing for seniors is only one way.  Many businesses and organizations are examining how they reach this booming population in our County. The influx of young families 30 and 40 years ago with the development of Columbia has now given us a large number of retirees.
    This Village is part of a larger network of Villages forming across the country.  The first Village was established in Boston on Beacon Hill and soon followed by a Village in DC on Capitol Hill.
    To learn more about the Village here is the info on Saturday's open house:
