In August 2008, the Board of Trustees adopted a new vision statement for The Wesley Communities,
Promoting a positive experience of community and wellness for residents, clients, and staff.
At the beginning of 2010, less than two years after turning the focus of the vision to community and wellness, it is appropriate to start the campaign to bring a wellness center to Wesley Glen.
The visual image connected with this commitment to wellness is the Nautilus shell because of its connection to water and the restorative benefits it provides. The Nautilus shell itself grows into increasingly larger chambers throughout its life and so has become a symbol for expansion and renewal.
In nature, the Nautilus shell is naturally occurring example of the “Divine Proportion.” Over the centuries, the magical proportion has been humanly recognized as a universally pleasing composition, and is often found coincidentally, or planned, in art, music, nature, and physics – it is believed to disclose golden harmony behind our worldly existence and physical laws.
May this wellness center bring health and wellness – a “golden glow” to the community.
