You will see in this edition of The Ambiance that giving is the theme, and what a great theme it is. In truth, giving is at the heart of Saint Simeon’s.
Saint Simeon’s staff is dedicated to giving the best in care and service. Saint Simeon’s is committed to giving employees a wonderful place to work and share their talents. As well, Saint Simeon’s mission is fulfilled by the many volunteers and donors giving of their time, their talents and their treasure.
As you will read a bit later, Western Days 2014 was a huge success. Thank you to everyone that attended and for your generous giving. It was a fun filled evening made possible through the hard work of Carolyn Blair, many Saint Simeon’s staff and volunteers, and the leadership of Saint Simeon’s Home and Foundation Trustees.
People often comment to me that Saint Simeon’s has long been known as a leader in senior care. They then ask ‘How has Saint Simeon’s maintained that reputation through the years?’ My answer is always the same – The Boards of Trustees.
Central to the vision, mission and spirit of Saint Simeon’s is its Boards of Trustees. Individually and collectively their giving covers the spectrum. Their expertise and wise counsel guide the future of Saint Simeon’s. Their dedication to excellence inspires excellence. And the generosity of their personal financial resources ensure services and programs continue.
The following pages of this edition will acknowledge the many, many donors to Saint Simeon’s. You will also meet a colleague of mine, Chris Gruszeczki. Each name listed is an important part of the Saint Simeon’s family.
Each day and each evening, every day of the year, we at Saint Simeon’s give care and give love. And, we give thanks for each of you.
