As the year draws to a close, we are filled with gratitude for the remarkable journey we've been on together in 2023. It's been a year of profound change and growth for our beloved community, and we extend our heartfelt appreciation to each and every one of you for your invaluable support.

This past July, the Fellowship celebrated a monumental achievement— the opening of the new Pine Lodge. This new residential building represents more than just bricks and mortar; it symbolizes resilience, renewal, and the unwavering spirit of the Fellowship Community. In the face of adversity and the tragic fire that struck our community in 2020, your generous support helped us raise the $1.2 million needed to bring the new Pine Lodge to life. It's a testament to the strength of our community and the love we share for one another. Thank you.

In addition to Pine Lodge, we've been hard at work enhancing various living spaces around the community to make them more suitable for elderly residents. This year has seen an unprecedented influx of new members, with 23 new individuals already calling the Fellowship home, and another 6 new members expected before the year's end. This marks the largest surge of new members in our 57-year history, and it's a testament to the values and warmth of the Fellowship Community.

While we celebrate these remarkable milestones, we face an important and pressing need. The community must raise an additional $100,000 to meet our operational expenses for the year. This funding is essential to maintaining the high level of care and services we provide to our community members, including support for some members and retired coworkers who require financial assistance. We kindly ask for your support to help us reach our goal by the end of this calendar year.

We invite you to join us in sustaining the legacy of love that defines the Fellowship Community. Your support is not just a financial contribution; it's an investment in our mission to surround the elderly with care that nurtures the body, soul and spirit through all phases of life.

Thank you for your enduring support, and for being a part of the Fellowship Community’s extended family. Together, we can ensure that the light of this community shines brightly for generations to come!
