Pennswood Village Celebrates 35 Years By Honoring 1,472 Residents

Posted on January 9, 2015 in Community Highlight, General

For 35 years, Pennswood Village has been the go-to destination for Bucks County, Pennsylvania, area seniors. As the Newtown, Pennsylvania, senior living community prepares to spend 2015 celebrating its 35th anniversary and all of the progress it’s made during that time, one sentiment from leadership remains constant: Pennswood Village would not be the community it is today without the help of its amazing residents.

To pay tribute to all those who have called Pennswood Village home, and to kick off the community’s year-long anniversary celebration, Pennswood Village will be holding a champagne reception to unveil of a wall celebrating the lives of 1,472 residents who helped make Pennswood the vibrant community it is today.

The wall honors the residents who moved to Pennswood Village between June 10, 1980 and December 31, 2014. Henry Swain, the first person who moved to Pennswood Village on June 10, 1980, is the first name listed; the last name listed is Jan Neitzel, who moved to Pennswood Village on Dec. 30, 2014—one day before the cut off.

“Residents are what makes Pennswood Village a true community. We’ve been privileged to be the top retirement choice among Bucks County seniors for 35 years, and that’s due to the community residents have helped build within our walls,” said Ben Hoyle, Pennswood Village chief executive officer.

All residents past and present and their family members are invited to join us for the champagne reception. Hoyle and Lisa Ogletree, board member and chair of Pennswood Village’s stewardship committee, will speak at the event.

Though the reception is not open to the general public, anyone who visits Pennswood Village beginning in February will be able to see the wall, which is located near the main entrance. Make an appointment to come visit and see the wall!

As Pennswood Village takes a look back at 35 years, leadership has their eyes on the future, which is why the Fellowship Fund is so important. Please take a moment to find out how you can help secure the future for residents of Pennswood Village.
