Tip #22 of 50 – A look back at 2019 and a look forward to 2020
As we plan for 2020 at The Wesley Communities, I found myself looking back over all that 2019 has brought to us. First and foremost, 2019 was the year where we celebrated our first 50 years of providing excellent housing, care and services for seniors. And we will continue that celebration into this year – 50 plus years of excellent service! We are proud of where we’ve been and where we’re going.
This past year was particularly memorable because of our beautiful 50th Anniversary Gala at The Columbus Zoo. It was a magical night – beautiful weather, terrific food and entertainment, and those giraffes – close enough to feed! We could not have had a more perfect celebration. 2019 was also special due to the numerous awards we have won – (CBUS Top Pick 2019 for The Wesley Communities, 2019 Healthy Workplace Silver Award for The Wesley Communities from the Healthy Business Council of Ohio, and Outstanding Large Business 2019 for Wesley Woods at New Albany). We are proud to receive these recognitions of our good work and growth.
I want to sincerely thank our residents, their families, and all our business partners and community friends who have donated and contributed to our mission in 2019. As we move boldly onward this year, we look forward to staying ahead of the competition and continuing to provide warm and welcoming communities, where our residents and staff will thrive.
