There is something fundamentally important about reconnecting at the dinner table, "explains Karen Volker, Maplewood Village Manager.  "Today the pace in which we live our lives does not always include having the whole family present for a meal.  It is diabolically different from the child rearing days of our tenants."

The Maplewood Village family recently shared a day of reconnecting in a style the tenants would have done in their youth… with a Valentine's brunch – around the dinner table.  These once masters of the kitchen, creatively decorated homemade cookies and planned a brunch that was shared with those they love.
