On Wednesday night, November 14th, the newly established Wellness Committee at The Williamsport Home Apartments held a Bingo and Ice Cream Social. Over 60 residents came out for a fun night of Bingo and Kaleb Roudabush's (our Wellness Coordinator) famous home made ice cream! During the good weather months the focus is on being outside walking, playing bocci, and using the action stations on campus. Come winter, the focus is more on indoor activities. Either way, everyone has fun!
The Williamsport Home Apartments are home to an interesting and varied group of people! One of them is Barbara Sutryn a published author. On Tuesday, November 13th, we hosted a book lovers evening. Barbara spoke about the books she has written including her new book "Amanda and That Boy". She also welcomed another local author Cindy Bingham, to speak about her books for Penn State Fans, including Lion's Awakening. After the talk there was a question and answer period about writing and publishing.
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!
WNEP News recognized our Veterans with a piece on the news. Click on the link to see their report!

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!
Whichever specific health issue you're currently facing, we'll be more than glad to
give you a pre-appointment, free consultation on it!
