  • This Fall (date TBD), The VHA North will be presenting Safe and Secure in Your Home, an event for residents to get information about protecting yourself so you can live in your own home for a long time. It will be held at the brand-new First Responders Recreation Center to honor many of our presenters.  This program is designed to support The Villages’ “America’s Healthiest Hometown” initiative.  Presenters from a variety of safety and health fields will be available to talk with you, hand out useful information, and make brief presentations about securing your home and yours.
