Phase 1: The C1 Patio

Posted March 22nd, 2012 | Posted in Announcements

C1 Patio

The new C1 patio is complete, thanks to the contributions of many generous people to the Gardens project of the Foundation. Residents now have a beautiful new area to enjoy the sun (or the shade)!

Phase II
Construction has started with the demolition of concrete sidewalks replacing them with 2000 sq.ft. of pavers and shade trees. Completion is hopeful around May 1st, 2012.



Phase One Has Finally Started!

Posted May 27th, 2011 | Posted in Announcements
The bid was awarded in January 2011, and from then until May it was either sleet, snow, rain, or other inclement weather. But S&H Construction has been diligently working when the sun shines to meet the completion date of June 17th, 2011.
First the survey
Clearing the way for phase one
The footings were poured the week of May 23rd, and the patterned concrete patio was expected to be poured the following week.

Phase one begins

Brunch provides Art programs for residents

Posted May 27th, 2011 | Posted in Announcements
Jewelry art on display Over one hundred people joined us again this year at the Manor to show their support for the Arts program. By purchasing art, enjoying the brunch, and having fun with the silent auction, the ninth annual Arts Brunch brought in enough funds to cover the art program for another year. The residents truly enjoy the opportunity to participate in creative art classes each week.
One great new feature this year was the ability to accept credit cards! Armed with the new Square gadget and an iPad, we were able to help our supporters say “Charge It” and put all their purchases, including tickets and donations, on their credit cards. Visa, MC, and Discover were all used successfully. Because Square’s program keeps expenses to a bare minimum with no monthly fees and low transaction fees, we’ll definitely be using this again next year! The buffet table is ready for business

Another Fabulous Mardi Gras Party

Posted March 22nd, 2010 | Posted in Announcements

It was another fun and fabulous Mardi Gras event this year for the benefit of Gardens at the Manor. Held at the VE German Club, Davisville Road, Warminster, PA on Sunday 3/28/10, everyone had a great time and enjoyed the fabulous New Orleans cuisine served up by the VE club staff. With wine and beer included, as well as a cash bar, there was plenty of lubrication to go around.

Thanks again to the band Zydeco-A-Go-Go for providing the music and fabulous entertainment, once again including the washboard contest.

Despite the fragile economy, the generosity of those in attendance as well as those who sent in their donations made this another very successful fundraiser. Thank you all so much - your thoughtfulness helps bring the Gardens project that much closer to reality.
