We are beyond thrilled to have a full time Activities department in place for this season. Joe and Joyce Longworth have joined our Paradise Oaks family and have been working all summer to prepare for this season – you won’t want to miss out on all the fun we have on tap! Joe and Joyce will have an office set up in the Fireplace room off of the front desk (where the pool table use to be)- make sure you pop in to say hello and make them feel welcome 🙂 They are continuing all of our great fun from the prior years, but adding some new and exciting activities, as well as exciting new entertainment – you will definitely want to be a part of the fun!
Joyce and Joe Longworth’s summer home is in Cumberland Gap, TN. They have been traveling in their RV for several years during the winter months. In the past few years they have worked in volunteer positions with the United Methodist Nomads and Habitat for Humanity and as professional activity directors in Texas and Florida.
Prior to going on the road, Joyce worked as a county clerk in Ohio, in administration at Ohio University, in the banking industry and as a Christian Education Director. Joe is an electrical engineer and retired from Honeywell Aerospace as the Director of International Sales Operations. They have lived in several different states over the years including Ohio, Kansas, Washington state, and Arizona. They also owned and operated a coffee shop in Tennessee.
In recent activity director positions, they scheduled all resort activities including weekly entertainment/dances, outside excursions, holiday parties, a 5K run, in park parades, poker runs, and sporting tournaments.
They are looking forward to meeting each of you and spending the season at Paradise Oaks planning a full range of activities and booking some great entertainers.
