Church of God Home Wii Bowlers Raise $6643 for Big Brothers Big Sisters

 

In their second year of hosting a Wii Bowling competition among the residents of Letort Manor at Church of God Home in Carlisle, Helen Milliron and a cadre of like-minded neighbors raised $6643 for Big Brothers Big Sisters (BB/BS) of the Capital Region.  That brings their two-year total to nearly $14,000.  That is amazing considering there’s been a dozen or so dedicated bowlers participating.  The rest shows the great desire of this Church of God team to raise funds for these kids.  The event kicked off in late May at Church of God Home, a StoneRidge Retirement Living Community, and like last year, there was excitement and lots of fun.  That did not take away from the real focus, however, that of supporting the good work of BB/BS throughout the region.  Their program offers positive results for the youth involved, and it often leads to positive bonds with a “big” who offers advice, takes their “little” to the movies or helps with their homework and can be counted upon for support and encouragement.  Bravo Wii Bowlers at Letort Manor!  We will see you next year on Saturday, May 19, 2019!

Painting of Local Revolutionary War Officer Unveiled

On Thursday, May 17, amidst patriotic music and a small gathering of onlookers, an oil painting of Colonel Joseph Wood (1723-1788), a Revolutionary War officer, was unveiled in the Meier Room at StoneRidge Poplar Run in Myerstown.  Colonel Wood first served as a soldier in the French and Indian War and later as a commander of the 3rd Pennsylvania Regiment during the American Revolution.  The framed, 40”x 32” oil painting, commissioned in 1987 by Dr. George D. Heiss, a fourth great-grandson of Col. Wood, was painted by New Jersey portrait artist Jason Woodruff.  The painting is owned by the Isaac Meier Society, a 501 (c), non-profit organization established to restore and preserve the Isaac Meier Homestead.

 
Col. Wood’s son married one of Isaac Meier’s daughters.  In 1768, Isaac Meier laid out lots for a town called “Tulpehockentown,” later Myerstown, currently celebrating its 250th anniversary with events planned throughout this year.  The Isaac Meier Society has given the painting on permanent loan to StoneRidge Poplar Run where it will be exhibited in the Meier Room, a fine dining venue at Poplar Run.  Also at the unveiling was a copy of a letter dated December 14, 1776 written in Wood’s own hand when he was a commander at Fort Ticonderoga in New York.  People interested in seeing the painting should contact the Public Relations office at Poplar Run at 717.866.3275.

Retired Nurses Celebrate Nurses Day With Tea

The Retired Nurses Group at StoneRidge Poplar Run in Myerstown held a celebratory tea in honor of National Nurses Day.  The active group meets monthly and remains engaged with one another and with their profession.  The 17 retired nurses represent many years of dedicated service to the nursing profession.  Areas of practice ranged well beyond the traditional hospital bedside and include operating room, home health nursing, teaching nursing students, addiction training programs, foreign medical missions and as nurse midwives.  Many of these women earned undergraduate and graduate degrees before it was industry standard to do so as it is today.  Bravo dedicated nurses!
