Victory-picnic-in-the-park-thumbnailWe know everyone is excited to picnic on the Village Green to celebrate this years’s Founder’s Day on Saturday, April 5th. And to help prepare your picnic baskets, we’ve put together a list of picnic must haves.

As you enjoy your perfect picnic, be sure to take in the Resident Variety Show, a classic Founder’s Day feature. Hosted by the Anderson Institute of Music, this event features many talented, entertaining and amusing acts by residents from throughout the Verrado community.

And of course, don’t forget about our very special musical guest, Grammy award-winning top-40 rocker Rick Springfield at 8 p.m.

About Founder’s Day
Verrado truly is “community.” A place where neighbors enjoy spending time together. Where residents become lifelong friends. And where different generations can inspire and be inspired by one another. In order to celebrate the wonderful community Verrado has become, we like to host a huge party every year called Founder’s Day. It’s a fun-filled event that helps us say thanks to the families and neighbors that choose to call Verrado home.
Verrado-Founders-Day-Schedule-thumbnailAnd this year is even more special: Founder’s Day Weekend 2014, which takes place April 5th to 6th, marks Verrado’s 10th anniversary. Along with the slew of events for current residents, Founder’s Day is the perfect opportunity for prospective residents to experience just what the community has to offer.
