March and April 2006 Volume I Issue 2 Volunteer of the Year Announced This year the Bethlen Home will be honoring two Volunteers for the outstanding work, dedication and support they have given to the facility and its residents during the past year. The award is based on the number of hours each person has volunteered during the year. "Congratulations" to Rebecca Cain and Jean Celaschi. Rebecca has been a member of the Bethlen Cottages for six years. Since her arrival she has been active with the Bethlen Home by visiting residents, researching articles for special events and answering phones in our office. This past year Rebecca offered her talents by setting a schedule of Volunteers to help run our new gift shop, which has been very successful. Throughout the week you will also see her visiting our residents with her faithful companion, "Oreo". "Oreo" is a beautiful black dog who brings many smiles to our residents faces during visits. Rebecca also shares her talents with other organizations in the community. Jean has been a member of our community for the past three years. Sharing her multitude of talents, Jean can be found working in our gift shop throughout the week, helping with inventory, displays and more. She was a vital part of helping set up the gift shop for the new Bethlen Home's grand opening. You often see her having special one-on-one conversations with our resident shoppers. Her secretarial skills have also been used in our office. Jean's beautiful smile is a tribute to her wonderful personality. "Thanks" for helping make Bethlen Home's Volunteer program such a great success. We couldn't have done it without you! Ligonier Ice Fest Although the angel ice sculpture was melting nearly as soon as it was created (with temps in the 50s!), the Annual Ligonier Ice Fest drew a great crowd. Cheering for the Steelers Residents, staff and family cheered the Pittsburgh Steelers onto a Super Bowl victory! Both Ligonier Gardens and Bethlen Home held special Super Bowl parties. Residents enjoyed a chilly February day gathered around the Gardens' new big-screen TV. Superbowl Preview Party at Ligonier Gardens Emergency Generator The Ligonier Gardens is currently involved in a major project. An emergency generator has been designed and is being constructed by the Beckwith Machinery Company of Greensburg, PA.
