Our "Typical" Member

When people visit Partridge Knoll for the first time, we're often asked, "What is your typical member like?" The answer is simple:There isn't one. Our members come from all over the United States. Actually, from all over the world. Sure, we have had members from across St. Lawrence County: Massena, Ogdensburg, Saranac Lake and Lake Placid. We've also had people move to PK from California, Florida- even Dubai and London! We have members that have traveled to Egypt, Africa and all over Europe and we have had members that don't like to travel outside of St. Lawrence County, let alone New York State. Before retirement, our members were teachers, farmers, office workers, doctors, member of the military, homemakers, professors, yoga instructors, business men and women... Yes, we have met a lot of really interesting people.  Some of our members moved here to be closer to their children who have moved to the area. Some people have lived in the North Country their whole lives or have come back to the area where they grew up. Some move to Partridge Knoll to be near the college they love or the hospital where they worked for fifty years.  We have members that love to read. Members that love to cook. Some like to travel. Some like to shop. We have members that love technology- computers, email and social media and those that prefer writing letters and sending cards and notes through the mail. We have members that love to play cards, BINGO and Mah Jong and we have those who prefer to watch a good movie by themselves. Some members go to the gym or exercise class, some prefer to walk the municipal trail outdoors.  Some enjoy going to a musical or the orchestra, some would rather take a trip to the mall. One thing is certain. There is no typical member and we like it that way.
