Do you know any 100-year-olds? Statistics show there are 80,000 centenarians in America – one for every 4,600 citizens. The odds that you’re personally acquainted with one is low, though certainly possible.
However, there is one 100-year-old that you know. It’s us – Advent Christian Retirement Communities! It’s been 100 years since our founder – a humble pastor’s wife – was struck with the vision for a retired ministers’ home in southern Vermont. Since then we’ve grown and changed, but the heart of our mission has remained: to serve seniors with grace and distinction.
There’s something special about celebrating 100th birthdays, whether those of people or organizations. Tributes and honors tend to go with them for good reason. In our case, the lives of the seniors we’ve served as well as the dedication of those who served them come to mind on this singular occasion.
I invite you to remember the milestone we’ll celebrate next year with a memorial gift in honor of a loved one who, like those from our past, are worthy of such veneration. Your gift will help ensure that our 100-year legacy of distinctive service to seniors can continue robustly into the next century.
Would you join us this holiday season with such a “Happy Birthday” wish? Thank you in advance for your consideration!
Please join us in a mission bringing grace to bear on the lives of elders often overlooked in our day. We do this by providing communities that are Exceptional, Creative and Generous. Both we and those we serve are grateful for generosity that helps improve facilities and services. 100% of your gift goes to supporting important needs – and important lives.
