Welcome to Hidden Lake
Leo and Bunchie Jorwic
The couple moved to Hidden Lake last summer after Bunchie’s macular degeneration required her to start seeking additional help.
“We’re northsiders,” says Leo. “We’ve lived over in Blackjack (a nearby town) since our marriage in 1987. And Hidden Lake is a neighborhood institution. So we were well familiar with this place. We’re very happy with our decision.”
Since moving in, the Jorwics have been involved in all kinds of aspects of community life. “You can’t help but participate,” says Leo. “You’ve got all these things coming at you. Entertainment in the Hearth, trips out to restaurants…I’ve even volunteered to be secretary for the residents’ association. The people here are very friendly, and they all want you to get involved.”
Still happy together after 25 years, the Jorwics feel like they’re ready for the future in their house at Hidden Lake. “When you move out of a home you’ve lived in for umpteen years, it’s a big step to take,” he says. “But it’s worth it. This was a good move for us. We’re pleased with our experience. Very pleased.”
Elva Schubert is right where she wants to be.
For years, Elva has been visiting friends at Hidden Lake. In fact, she and her husband sat in on the meeting where construction on the community was first announced more than 25 years ago. “I’ve been thinking about this place for a long time,” she says. “I’ll be 90 years old soon, and a 90-year-old woman shouldn’t have to live alone after raising seven kids.”
One smooth transition later, Elva has taken to life at Hidden Lake beautifully, taking advantage of all the activities the community can schedule. “She loves it here. She’s always out with her new friends,” her daughter Mary laughs. “She tells me she’s the new queen of Hidden Lake. And I don’t doubt it!”
