Corcoran goes to Camp!

 Thank you for your participation in the most recent trivia question! The question asked, "What is a funambulist?" The answer is a tightrope walker!


John M. Corcoran & Company celebrated the annual Resident Appreciation Day on August 18th. JMC took on the theme of "Camp Corcoran" to celebrate this occasion across the entire portfolio. All of our properties took the time to organize a day full of events to show how thankful they are for our residents who make these communities so special. Each community was tasked with organizing a lumberjack breakfast, trail mix bar, picnic lunch, s'mores snack, and a happy camper dinner for residents to enjoy throughout the day.

The staff at The Sto went above and beyond to bring this Stoughton campground to life for the residents! The morning started with a hearty lumberjack breakfast with French toast, egg sandwiches, home fries and fruit, all with flannels, beards, and axes to match! The staff even popped a tent and lit a fire to set the tone for the granola mixer and some fun camper giveaways including stickers, bracelets, and keychains!

The staff also asked residents to write their favorite thing about The Sto to add to the décor!

The residents of Parkside Commons had a blast from enjoying fabulous food catered by local Winthrop Meat Market to playing games in the courtyard.

The staff at Kent Village got into the spirit and even created their very own Camp Corcoran t-shirts to sport for the day! The residents got to participate in camp-style bingo, outdoor games, and they got to make their own sundaes at the ice cream bar.

The Residences on Broadway, Village Green, the Commons at Boston Road, and the Commons at Drum Hill took this assignment seriously as each staff member wore camp counselor themed tees. The counselors in South Boston put a twist on the occasion to make it a "glamping" experience for their campers with Starbucks coffee, mimosas, burgers from Lincoln Tavern, and s'mores! Our Littleton, Billerica, and Chelmsford campers enjoyed face painting, balloon animals, and catered meals from local businesses.

Westcott Terrace put together a fabulous day to show their appreciation for their residents. Camp Westcott was decked out with a tent, campfire, pine tree, fishing poles, and tackle box. Talk about attention to detail!

We were so happy to see all of the preparation of Camp Corcoran come to life from the festive décor, to amazing food and treats, outdoor games, and fun giveaways to show our appreciation for all of our residents! We look forward to this event every year and cannot wait to see what our communities have in store for 2023.

  3. On March 1, 1872, Grant signed the Yellowstone National Park Protection Act, which made the area “a public park or pleasuring-ground for the benefit and enjoyment of the people.” This landmark legislation created the first National Park and led to the creation of the National Park Service.
