Residents at Henry Manor enjoyed a fun game night along with clients and staff from a local nonprofit, Hope & Thrive Academy. In addition to enjoying cornhole games outdoors and board games inside, guests were invited to find their artistic side and try their hand at oil painting.
The Academy set up painting stations with a wide variety of paint colors to choose from and the event left many people saying, “who knew we were so talented?” An ice cream station with a variety of ice cream flavors and toppings capped the extra special night.
The delicious aroma of hot dogs on the grill always draws a crowd and at Chippington Towers it was a crowd pleaser. The staff hosted an outdoor dinner for residents who were appreciative and thankful for the party even though it wasn’t a sunshine filled day. That’s the spirit that led to lots of laughs, conversations with new friends and a good time for the community.
The Chippingtons also received a visit from Chaplain Walter Ghosten recently.

Continuing his travels to LHP properties, Chaplain Ghosten visited Beersheba Heights Tower in McMinnville arriving just as the residents were gathering for a game of bingo. The fact that he was invited to speak and visit with the bingo players before they began to play is a testament to the Chaplain’s gracious social skills. As we know, it’s usually bingo or bust!
