Anne and Mike McWeeney moved to Deerfield in August as a part of Tuton Hall’s “Class of 2010.” After retiring from their jobs in 2004 in Tampa, Florida, the couple began a search for the perfect retirement community. “My husband is a retired engineer,” says Anne, “so he creates spreadsheets for everything!” They came up with 50 potential communities and visited 10 of them. “Deerfield was head and shoulders above the rest – you walk into the Bistro as new residents, and people say ‘Come have a seat at our table!’” she added. They love the mountains and the cooler summer weather. “My only regret is that we didn’t make the move sooner,” says Mike. “The reduction of stress in our lives since moving to Deerfield has been amazing!” His wife adds, “The little view of the mountains from our balcony makes me very happy.”
