An expression of love is special. These days, it is more precious than ever. As our country slowly reopens, now is the perfect time to strengthen our faith and reinforce bonds with those we love.

Christy Rich, Harbor Hills Banquet and Wedding coordinator, promotes early planning for weddings and vow renewal ceremonies. Even a small gathering provides the opportunity to celebrate connectedness and renew an appreciation for our lives. “A vow renewal ceremony at Harbor Hills is very special,” she said. It celebrates the value of an enduring relationship. Vow renewal says to the world, “I’d do it all over again.”

Whether it be a wedding to celebrate young love or a vow renewal for seniors, Christy organizes everything. The view from the Harbor Terrace overlooking Lake Griffin provides an extraordinary backdrop for the special day. For more information, contact Christy at 352-753-7000 or crich@harborhills.com.

Our youngest daughter can attest to that. She and her husband will celebrate their 13th anniversary this week. They were married at Harbor Hills in an international ceremony in 2008, attended by relatives from Ireland, Scotland and England.

I am also celebrating an anniversary. On May 25, 2015, my first article as Harbor Hills community columnist was published in The Villages Daily Sun. It has been a delight to bring you the news of this distinctive community for the last six years. Thanks to my kind readers, the Daily Sun editorial staff and the developer of Harbor Hills, Michael Rich. Apart from the Great American Novel I have yet to pen, this has been a dream come true.
