Thank you Lynne and Anne!
Thank you for your good wishes, Lynne, Holly, Anne and Claire. The move went well and she seems to love the place. She used to complain of loneliness and depression but since she moved she's not said one negative word, just praise for the staff and facility. She already goes to meals with new friends and on an outing to see the spring blossoms. We are confident that she will be safe and happy there for many years to come.

Hi Claire, We are very lucky that Denise and her board saw a need for recycled art supplies and opened a shop to fill it. We have a large art community and many kind donors who drop off materials weekly so the selection is always changing.
