As our plans for The Village at St. Elizabeth Mills unfold, we are reminded that the success of this groundbreaking community is reliant on the people who will live here. Once all is said and done, it is always about community – the connections we make with each other that impact all of our lives, bring us meaning and joy. At this time of the year we are especially aware of the importance of community and connections. The coming of a New Year reminds us that being part of a dynamic, caring and active community is an opportunity to live the ZESTful years with purpose.

ZEST has a maverick attitude towards the 55+ years. We believe in the positive benefits of fun and laughter, activity and stimulation, continuing education and the pursuit of meaningful leisure. We are building our first 55+ resort lifestyle community at The Village at St. Elizabeth Mills based upon those principles.

The Village will be Ontario’s very first community of its kind. We hope you will consider living here to enjoy all the many activities and events that will be available to you. For now, we wish you and your families a wonderful New Year filled with happiness and the people that fill your lives with joy.

Tony Difruscio and Rob Baiocco
