This year’s 23rd annual “Western Days 2020: Cheers to 60 years”, will celebrate six decades of excellence in senior care and our “heroes and saints” – the dedicated frontline staff at Saint Simeon’s,” said Beth and Scott Brown, Co-Chairs of Western Days.
“Scott’s mother received excellent care at Saint Simeon’s and we are thrilled to help continue that level of care for our residents for the next 60 years,” Beth Brown said.
Scott is a member of the Saint Simeon’s Foundation Board of Trustees.
“We are pleased to announce that the Honorary Chairs of this year’s Western Days are Phyllis and George Dotson,” Beth Brown says. “Their dedication is a crucial component that has helped make Saint Simeon’s Oklahoma’s leading nonprofit senior care community.”
George Dotson’s mother and aunt were both residents at Saint Simeon’s, and he serves on the Board of Trustees for both the Home and Foundation. Phyllis Dotson serves on the Foundation Board of Trustees. The Dotson’s are long-time, steadfast supporters of Saint Simeon’s and the Dotson Assisted Living Center, completed in 2007, is named for these generous benefactors.
This year’s Western Days celebration will be presented via a very special video, focusing on Saint Simeon’s “Heroes and Saints” – the staff members who have kept residents healthy and safe during the pandemic, according to the Browns.
The video, which will be released on September 15, the original date of Western Days, will feature appearances by Saint Simeon’s residents and staff, Trustees, friends and supporters, local dignitaries, and a few surprise celebrity guests. The video presentation also will include a history of the past 60 years, and an array of musical performances.
This year’s Patron Chair for Western Days is Hilary Clark, who also serves as Chair of the Saint Simeon’s Foundation Fundraising Committee. Hilary Clark’s husband, Tom Clark, was a longtime resident of Saint Simeon’s.
“We are inviting Saint Simeon’s friends and supporters to mark this very special occasion with 60th anniversary patron support,” said Hilary Clark. “An anniversary gift will ensure that Saint Simeon’s will be able to offer the very best of compassionate care for the next 60 years.”
Advisory Chairs are Melissa and Mac Stallcup, Chairs of last year’s record-breaking Western Days. Mac is a member of the Board of Trustees and his father was a beloved resident at Saint Simeon’s.
Western Days Committee members include Rachel and Wink Kopczynski, Wink Kopczynski Jr., Kristye McKinney, Debbie Vinyard, and Saint Simeon’s staff members Thea Lawson and Charlie Redding.
Western Days will be presented on You Tube, the Saint Simeon’s web site, and other platforms, and can be viewed on Sept. 15 or anytime for the duration of the year.
The video is being produced by Rumbledrum and its staff, Joe Mathis, Todd Wade and Amanda Montonati, and the Saint Simeon’s Foundation staff, including Brent Ortolani, Executive Director, and Lisa Gray, administrative assistant.
“Some friends and supporters will gather together to watch the video celebration,” says Beth Brown. “It promises to be one of our most imaginative and exciting Western Days celebrations yet. Cheers to 60 years!”
