Veteran's Day is always very special on The Williamsport Home Campus. We are very blessed to have so many veterans living here! This year we honored all of our Veterans with a ceremony presenting certificates of gratitude from the Pennsylvania House of Representatives signed by Representative Jeff Wheeland of the 83rd District.
We also had our ABC Singers lead us in patriotic songs, a recognition speech by our Executive Director Don Pote, music by Tom Wetzel, and of course cake.
A very special tribute to all of our Veterans who are no longer with us was the playing of Taps by
Apartment Resident (and member of the Repasz Band) Bob Wise.
The Skilled Nursing Facility also hosted a live remote by Backyard Broadcasting that included a visit by the Rooster!
And last but certainly not least was a visit by Nursery School students from Miss Cathy's Kittens who did an excellent job reciting the Pledge of Allegiance!

As we watch summer turning into fall we are happy with the cooler weather and foliage starting to turn but sad to see our beautiful summer flowers beginning to fade. Residents, visitors and staff have all enjoyed the lovely container gardens and beds this summer. We would like to thank everyone that was kind enough to donate to The Williamsport Home during the Raise the Region event! We would not have had such beautiful flowers to enjoy without your help. THANK YOU!
We love showing off our beautiful campus! Please join us for an open house on Thursday, October 4th from 2-4 PM. We will have residents giving tours of our Independent Living Building Edgewood (A Building). We will also have key staff from The Independent Living and Personal Care Programs to answer any questions you may have about what living on a Continuing Care Retirement Community Campus is like.
If you can't make our open house give us a call and arrange a private personal tour, we'd love to have you!
The Residents of The Williamsport Home Apartments are always on the GO! In August they had two trips. The first was to Selinsgrove to shop at Boscov's and the Thrift Store and have dinner at Red Robin. The second was a trip to Slate Run for dinner. Although many of the residents have their cars on campus and drive, it is always nice to be chauffered! Everyone enjoyed both trips!
For three days in September the Williamsport Home and Apartment Residents were hosted by the O'Conner family to fish and picnic at their beautiful pond and pavilion. This has been an annual event started by the Stubler family several years ago. When the Stublers sold the property we were afraid our fishing trips would end. However, the O'Conners have been so kind and generous to continue the tradition.
Packing up residents, picnic lunches, fishing supplies, and in some cases medication and nurses to boot is a large undertaking but everyone enjoys these outings, residents and staff! This year the weather was strange (as it was all summer) but we managed to get three days in row with decent weather. Lots of fish were caught and released, lots of laughs, good picnic food and just enjoying being out in the fresh air and enjoying the beauty of nature.
Whichever specific health issue you're currently facing, we'll be more than glad to
give you a pre-appointment, free consultation on it!
