Senior dwelling middle cuts ribbon on new outside recreation space


A local senior living center is upgrading its facility to allow guests to participate in more outdoor activities.

The Springhill Retirement Community celebrated philanthropy Monday at the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new outdoor recreation area. New features include gardens, a new bocce ball court, putting green, horseshoe pit and water sports centre.

The recreation areas are funded through philanthropy, with Springhill being a non-profit organization.

The President and CEO of the Asbury Foundation told us how it feels to make the completed six to eight year project available to its residents.

“Oh amazing but they are donors again. Our residents are our main donors. If you want to see something happen here, step up and make it happen,” said JD Shuman, President and CEO of the Asbury Foundation.

Shuman said that Springhill is a great example of how philanthropy can make the extraordinary possible.
