Active adult builder marks milestone with Toys for Tots donation

[USPRwire, Sun Nov 30 2008] Award-winning home builder Windsong Properties celebrated five outstanding years in business last Friday with an invitation-only anniversary luncheon at which attendees brought toys to donate to the Atlanta Toys for Tots holiday campaign. The event was held at the gorgeous clubhouse in their Somerset community in Woodstock, and attended by approximately 100 trade partners and business associates. Attendees enjoyed a barbeque lunch, dessert and giveaways while Steve Romeyn, Managing Partner of Windsong Properties delivered personal remarks.

“In the past five years, Windsong’s communities and homes have been incredibly well received by active adult buyers,” said Romeyn. “Our 190th homebuyer has just moved into their unique low maintenance, EasyLiving home. In fact, we have sold 32 homes in 2008, in what many consider a down market. We are energized by the response of our homebuyers and their joy in the Windsong lifestyle. Our successes comes as the result of the dedication of our staff and trade partners. A heartfelt thank you is extended to each of you for your contribution in reaching this milestone.”

Windsong Properties builds EarthCraft and EasyLiving certified, single story detached home communities specifically designed for those ages 55 and up. The Villas at Blackberry Run, in Seven Hills, located in Dallas, Ga., is a 78-home retirement community with homes priced from $225,000. Somerset is the builder's newest active adult community, featuring 58 ranch courtyard homes in Woodstock, Ga., priced from $337,000.

Seventy toys were donated to Atlanta Toys for Tots by attendees. Atlanta Toys for Tots fulfills the Christmas dreams of Atlanta's neediest children through toy collections and donation. Accepting the toys were a contingent of Marines in full dress blues. “We decided to make this celebration more than just a luncheon by coming together as a group to make the holidays brighter for children in Atlanta,” explained Romeyn.
