Health Fair & Open House A Great Success

Seniors enjoyed an afternoon full of health information, exercise demonstrations, screenings and more at Mirota Senior Residence on Friday, June 13th. 

Residents and members of the public joined together to learn more about their health, safety, senior living, and community resources. Not only was it informative, but many enjoyed participating in a balance class offered by a local community group as well.
Thanks to the event's success, a Fall Health Fair and Open House has been scheduled for Friday, September 26th, from 1-4 pm. Mark your calendars, we hope you can join us.

It is an enduring way to memorialize a loved one, or to honor an important milestone for someone special in your life. Money raised through our annual brick appeal is placed into the Good Samaritan Fund, which provides much needed assistance to residents at Crane's Mill and Lutheran Crossings.


Please consider supporting this appeal by purchasing an engraved brick to be displayed in one of two brick gardens. Purchase your memorial brick today! 
Orders due by August 30th. Contact the Foundation at 609-699-4115 for more details. Download the order form.
