"Meer Apartments has been my home for more than 12 years. I find much pleasure in my volunteer work, greeting new residents to our Meer family and supporting new residents as they get acquainted to their new home. I also enjoy volunteering some time to make dolls for cancer patients. This is a short list but I find being helpful and busy is always very rewarding." ~ Fran Penskar
"I have made lots of new friends. I lead several activities including movies and discussion groups and attend offsite concerts plus live entertainment which makes Meer a great place to live. I would definitely recommend Meer to anyone who wants to enjoy living among great people." ~ Bob Prussack, Meer resident
