Chaplain Walter Ghosten is again traveling to LHP communities to visit with staff. The visits were stopped during the pandemic but now that communities are opening back up safely, the Chaplain is traveling to a couple of properties each week. The Scruff will share photos from his visits and identify the staff members he meets so you can get to know more names and faces in the LHP family.
Chaplain Ghosten’s visits may also bring to light interesting news we otherwise would have missed! For example, last week he visited 1100 Studio Apartments and discovered the resident service coordinators were in the middle of a big project and a very unique and beneficial endeavor. Resident Service Coordinators Johnneta Fenderson and Jannette Hypes were organizing materials for their “Balcony Gardeners” who are growing greens and tomatoes on their patio balconies.
The program has a great deal of community support. The University of Tennessee/TSU Extension Agents Elizabeth Wunschel and Neal Denton are providing planting and growing instruction classes on Zoom for the residents. The nearby Beardsley Farm donated the tomato plants and The Bloom Center of Bearden donated herbs, Coleus and Hens & Chicks.
The Chaplain’s visits include:
