Awards Season at Cross Keys Village
Thursday, October 5, 2017
Every summer our two local newspapers, the Evening Sun and the Gettysburg Times, organize popularity polls for area businesses. Winners are selected in many categories through two rounds of voting. It is our pleasure to announce that we have won – again – the top spot in both contests. The Evening Sun’s readers gave us the Readers’ Choice Award in the Senior Care/Living category, and the readers of the Gettysburg Times called us the Pick of the Counties in the Senior Living Category.
Unlike Hollywood actors or New York Times best-selling authors, we need to keep earning those awards… even after we win them! Fortunately we have an outstanding team, here at Cross Keys Village. We understand that a sincere smile, a quick and clear reply to a family’s concern or a few minutes’ worth of “above and beyond” will confirm to someone that we actually are the best. And that someone will tell someone else, believe me. Congratulations to all of you for these awards, and let’s stay in the red-carpet frame of mind until next awards season.
At the 2017 Southern PA District Conference of the Church of the Brethren, The Faith Community of The Brethren Home Community was recognized and honored by The Children’s Aid Society (CAS) of the S. PA District of the COB with its 2017 Samaritan Award, presented with gratitude to the church for “helping to keep children feel safe and loved.”
In the presentation of the plaque to Pastor Linda S. Titzell, the CAS Director Eric Chase thanked Faith Community for its generous financial support, and also expressed gratitude to CKV-TBHC for many acts of generosity, including hand-made wooden toys, knitted or crocheted blankets and caps, and supplies of diapers, paper products, and toys. This is the first year CAS has presented their Samaritan Award and we are honored to receive it.
