Mary Eads

Thank you for visiting the Bartlett Woods blog. I am Mary Eads, the Executive Director, and bi-weekly I will be sharing my thoughts and inspiration as well as posting information about our retirement community that will inform our community, residents, family, and friends of the fabulous activities, upcoming events and fundraisers being held at Bartlett Woods.

Along with my own bi-weekly posts, I will also be adding posts written by our well respected staff here at Bartlett Woods covering a variety of different topics.

Please feel free to send suggestions, I would love to hear from you!
