I, Jean Wheatley Hilchuk, am on a walker due to poor surgery. I have had four hip replacements and one knee replaced twice. However, I still drive. I have been in the pool 133 times. Right now, we are waiting for them to fix the heater to the pool. I have played bridge 182 times this year. Certainly glad I moved one mile from my home seven years ago to this great retirement center.
