We don't have many words after a weekend like this one, partially because we're tired, but mostly because we don't really know how to thank a community that comes together to support our Home in this way.

It's August. Benefit month.

Things are moving at a fast clip around the Home as plans are finalized, last-minute phone calls are made, residents and staff are preparing food, and auction items are being stored.

It's always incredible to see the community come up beside o...
