What i did was go room to room and introduced myself to the residents. It may take a while, but they like the one-on-one introduction better. Then at the first resident council meeting I put out a mailbox and told them that when they have an idea for activities. put it in the box and put the tab up. Check it everyday, and the ideas that you are able to do, bring them to the next council meeting and bring them up for a vote to see if you will have a large number of residents willing to participate. You can have that resident run the activity i.e explaining, keeping score, and teaching.
