Meet the Producer, Virgil Springer

This month, meet Virgil Springer, who has been a villa resident of Copeland Oaks community since 1999.

Virgil is a retired United Methodist Church pastor and middle-school science teacher who still loves the periodic table!

Since moving to Copeland Oaks in 1999, Virgil has followed a new calling. He’s the producer! He helps produce weekly programs for Copeland Oaks TV. He loves this view of the world through the lens of a camera at our very own Copeland Oaks TV studio.

What led him and his wife Claire, who he married in 1962, to live at Copeland Oaks?

“My mother-in-law came to Copeland Oaks after she suffered a stroke.  Clair and I saw the wonderful care that she received.  We talked about our future and realized that if we moved to Copeland Oaks, we would not need to worry about care for the rest of our lives,” he says.

Virgil also got to live out his “inner architect” by helping to design the villa where they live.

But he especially loves being The Producer.

“Since 2002, I have also enjoyed being part of the growth and development of the Copeland Oaks television station,” he says.

“Our mission is to spread information and entertainment throughout the Copeland campus,” Virgil adds. “We have a great crew with huge creative talent.”
