Young Love

Retirement homes are often thought of to be places where senior citizens go and spend the rest of their lives alone without any friends or family. However, for a retirement home in Bowling Green, Kentucky, this is not the case. Bowling Green Retirement Village is the home of young-hearted old folks who have built a community within their small living quarters. To keep things fun, residents often throw small parties that include music, dancing and wine.
