Ice Cream Social to be Held at BRC on Friday Evening

The Eden Alternative Committee is bringing the Ice Cream Social back to Brethren Retirement Community. A big evening is planned for Friday, September 23rd in the Brick Room and along our Main Street. From 5:30 to 7:30pm we will be offering hot dogs, popcorn, baked goods, cold drinks and of course ICE CREAM! Winnie Pearl will also be performing in the Brick Room at 7pm.

In 2001, Brethren Retirement Community made its official pledge by becoming a Certified Home on the Eden Alternative Registry. The core concept of The Eden Alternative is strikingly simple - we see our environments as habitats for human beings rather than a facility for the frail and elderly. We encourage living life to the fullest!

The Eden Alternative movement is a journey, a never-ending journey of creating a person-centered community with ongoing commitment and education. The Eden Alternative journey impacts the physical environment, organizational structure, and psycho-social interactions of the organization. Brethren Retirement Community is committed to continuing the journey of “Edenizing” our campus in order to enhance the lives of our elders, families, staff and community.

This social event will allow all the staff and residents to showcase the changes that have taken place in their lives and in their hearts as we have changed our culture.

This invitation is extended to all Brethren Retirement Community residents and their families, staff and their families, and everyone in the Darke County community who enjoys ice cream and visiting with friends old and new. Please mark your calendars and plan to join us for an evening of good food, ice cream, entertainment and fellowship.
