AROUND THE VILLA
Violinist Jennifer Argenti Wows the Crowd at the Villa
Gifted country and rock violinist Jennifer Argenti thrilled LOHV's residents with her brand of fiery playing on the afternoon of July 2nd. Jennifer, who has been featured in concert with Willie Nelson, put on a memorable performance at the Villa as part of her nation-wide "Giving Back Tour." She made our residents smile and tap their toes as she shared her love of music with them.
July Birthday Bash
This month's Birthday Bash was a very eventful one. Bedford mayor Stan Koci and councilwoman Marilyn Zolata made a special visit to the Villa to deliver Proclamation awards to Agnes (98 years old), Anna (95 years old), Irene (95 years old), and Josephine (90 years old). Sweet blessings and best wishes go out to all of our residents with birthdays this month!
Blessing of LOHV's New Ford Flex
Residents and staff gathered on the morning of July 6th for the blessing of the Villa's new automobile: A 2016 Ford Flex. Liberty Ford of Maple Hts., Mr. Walt Bailey, worked very closely with our executive director in providing excellent customer service. The Villa is grateful to Walt for guiding us to this wonderful new automobile.
Father Ed Schwet presided over the event. He asked God to bless the new automobile on its future travels and to protect those who ride in it.
Congratulations, Father Bill!
On July 7th, Father Bill O'Neill marked the 55th year of his ordination into the priesthood. At a party in his honor, he recalled his experiences-as parish priest, as pastor, and as the head of the Diocesan Marriage Tribunal for 25 years. Father Bill has been a Resident at the Villa for two years. He offers Friday Masses and makes himself available for our residents by anointing the sick and providing pastoral care.
Everyone at the Villa wishes to congratulate Father Bill and to thank him for 55 years of faithful service.
