There is no shortage of resident-run activity groups and social clubs at Covenant Woods. You’ll find dozens of often creatively named groups to join: the Billiards Bunch (pool sharks), the Creeky Crooners (chorus), the Pencil Pushers (adult coloring), and the Knit Wits (knitting) or Sew-N-Sews (sewing). Or start your own club (and give it a fun name).
And if you enjoy a good party, you’ll have plenty to choose from – residents throw them all the time.
