Poised for an exciting future As I write this end-of-the-year article for The Fireside, I can’t help but reflect on 2018, as well as the 21 plus years that I have had the privilege to serve as Homewood’s President/CEO. First of all I’m asking myself, “Where did the years go?” It seems like just yesterday that I was 48 and beginning my position with Homewood. Now more than 21 years have passed. Homewood has seen a lot of change and growth in the interim. It is quite astonishing to me that I am only the fourth person to have led this organization in its 86-year history. Homewood is the 37th largest Not-For-Profit Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) in the United States, according to the Ziegler Ernest W. Angell Investment Group. As I have shared many times, it was never my desire for President/CEO Homewood to be the largest CCRC in the United States, rather my goal was always to grow each campus, as appropriate, to become the best CCRC in each of our communities. My goal has always been for each Homewood campus to be the retirement center of choice for our five communities in Pennsylvania and Maryland. I honestly can say that I believe we have achieved that goal - through the hard work and dedication of our co-workers, volunteers and board members, as well as the dedicated leadership staff throughout the organization. I would like to say to each of you who have played a part in Homewood’s growth and development - Well Done and Thank You! Since notifying Homewood’s Board of Trustees in March of 2018 of my intention to retire in March 2019, I have asked board members, staff and residents to “pray in my successor.” I must tell you that I believe this has truly happened. I believe in the power of prayer and I believe God has honored our request. My successor, Mr. Thad Rothrock, has had an exceptional career in our industry. After several phone and in-person interviews with Thad and, also his wife Melissa, over the past few months it became obvious that Thad was the right choice. Homewood wanted to make sure that the new President/CEO was the right fit for Homewood and that Homewood was the right fit for Thad and Melissa. After spending many hours with Thad, I can tell you that he is a dedicated Christian man, who seeks God’s wisdom and direction in his personal life, as well as his professional life. He is a Christ follower and he very much looks forward to working for a Christian organization. Thad will be joining me in early March to meet residents, staff and board members throughout the Homewood family. I ask that each of you pray that Thad and Melissa will have a smooth transition to Maryland and to his new role as President/CEO for the Homewood Retirement Centers. You will read much more about Thad within the pages of this Fireside issue. These are exciting times for me as I return to Colorado for my own retirement. I have lived in Colorado three different times in the past and have always wanted to retire there. These are also exciting times for Thad and Melissa, as well as Homewood, as Thad takes over the leadership of Homewood. I believe Homewood will be left in exceptionally good hands and will continue to thrive in the years ahead. I ask for God’s blessing on our new President/CEO and on Homewood. May Homewood continue to thrive another 86 years and beyond - Lord, let it be so! God bless each of you. I know that He has blessed me these 21+ years.

Gary and Nancy McElwain celebrated Nancy’s 80th Birthday last spring with a party in her hometown of Latrobe, Pennsylvania.
Plum Creek’s Nancy McElwain has always enjoyed doing things for others. She’s fond of doing small kindnesses for anyone she sees having a rough time. She spent her professional life caring for others as a nursing home administrator and a social worker. And she is spending her retirement finding ways to help wherever she can. So when she and husband Gary were presented with an opportunity to make a lasting impact on the lives of Homewood residents both now and into the future, they decided it was well worth it. The Hanover couple was invited to a presentation in early 2018 about RLEEF (Resident Life Enrichment En-
dowment Fund) - just as the fund-raising effort was getting off the ground. “It was a lovely presentation and we thought it was a nice idea,” Nancy said. The couple discussed the information that had been presented and decided to make a pledge to RLEEF in honor of Plum Creek’s retiring Executive Director Sandy Fair. Fast forward to earlier this year when The Unforgettable Big Band performed on the Hanover campus - with funding from RLEEF. “When we heard them play, we knew we made the right decision,” Nancy said.

Homewood names Rothrock next President and CEO In the first quarter of 2019, Homewood Retirement Centers will welcome its 5th leader when Thad Rothrock takes the reins as President and CEO. He succeeds Ernie Angell who has held the post for more than 21 years. Angell plans to retire at the end of March. “As I step down as President and CEO of Homewood Retirement Centers, I know Homewood is in good hands,” Angell said. Rothrock brings more than 25 years of experience in the senior living industry to his new position at Homewood. Rothrock said he was very selective in his decision to leave his current position in southern California, but Homewood’s combination of a faith-based organization with multiple sites was a strong influencer. “I consider it my life’s purpose to serve seniors in the faith-based environment,” he said. While he is coming from a much
larger organization owned by the Evangelical Covenant Church, the region he has led matches Homewood’s size almost unit for unit. Rothrock said he has visited two of Homewood’s communities as a part of his interview process and was struck by the beautiful campuses and their growth opportunities. He said he was also impressed by the strength of Homewood’s team, the longevity of so many of the Homewood coworkers and the sincerity and good hearts of those he met. While his last 18 years have been spent in sunny southern California, Rothrock also has roots in Texas and the midwest where he lived for 10 years having attended college in Goshen, Indiana, and earning a master’s degree from the University of Notre Dame. He said he and wife, Melissa, became “empty nesters” when their youngest child headed off the college this past fall. That transition brought them to realize their lives are more
Sun shines on rescheduled Plum Creek Classic It may have taken a couple of extra weeks for the final golf tournament to be played, but it was well worth the wait. This year’s Plum Creek Tournament made more than $45,000 to help fund the renovation of the Memory Care dining room. (See Page 7) Congratulations to all our winners!

about purpose than place and if they wanted to make a change, now was the time. In the short-term, Rothrock said he plans to do a lot of listening as he gets to know his new surroundings. “I place a high value on mission and serving residents to the fullest extent,” he said.
Long-time controller tapped for Vice President position
WENDY CRAMPTON New VP of Finance
Wendy Crampton, Homewood’s long-time controller, has been named Vice President of Finance and will assume her new position in March. She succeeds George McCullough who is retiring after 19 years as Homewood chief financial officer. “We are so pleased to have someone of Wendy’s caliber already on our staff,” said Homewood President Ernie Angell. “With her background and her many years of experience at Homewood, it should make for an easy transition.” Crampton is a graduate of Shippensburg University where she earned a bacholor’s degree in accounting. She is a Certified Public Accountant and has served as Homewood’s controller since 2000. “I’m very excited to have this opportunity to serve Homewood residents and coworkers,” Crampton said. “I look forward to continuing the steady and strong financial vision that has helped make Homewood an industry leader.”

Foundation grateful for 2018 community support 2018 has proven to be an exciting year for the Homewood Foundation. As we celebrate the greatest gift of all this Christmas season we give thanks for all of you who choose to make Homewood a part of your philanthropic plans. This year you have made an incredible difference with your support of our three primary areas of focus. Benevolent Care – As of December 19, donors have gifted more than $1.1 million toward the BenevJ.D. Shuman olent Endowment President which helps to underwrite Homewood’s ability to provide care for residents who have outlived their financial resources through no fault of their own. Special Programs & Scholarship Endowments – More than $631,000 has been donated so far this year for the Resident Life Enrichment Endowment Fund (RLEEF) which helps to enhance programming throughout Homewood that differentiates us from the competition. In addition our first Scholarship Endowment was established (more information to come). Capital Projects and Site Gifts – Donors are enhancing their campuses with capital projects and equipment purchases to the tune of more than $515,000.
This year we introduced the newest members of the Foundation team, Director of Development Raina Womer and Development Assistant and Web Content Coordinator Kate Freeman. Together these ladies joined Executive Assistant Lisa Bethel and each campus’s Executive Director and leadership teams and raised more than $201,000 through the annual Golf Tournaments and Strawberry Festival. A Homewood Foundation best!
Also in 2018, the Homewood Foundation Board developed the addition of recognition levels to the George Pearson Society allowing us to recognize the lifetime giving levels of Homewood Foundation donors as well as those who have shared with us that they have included Homewood in their estate plans. In addition, the board helped develop the first ever Homewood Foundation Annual Report which highlights these amazing George Pearson Society donors! Another Homewood Foundation first this year is the implementation of the Foundation Partnership program that provides prospective residents the opportunity to receive support during the sale of their property while they move to Homewood. Once the property sells they fund an income producing gift vehicle that provides monthly income for life! This year the program yielded $295,000 for the Benevolent Fund!
This year the Foundation took part for the first time in two online days of giving with Washington County Gives and #GivingTuesday. This helped to add more than $6,200 to the Benevolent Fund while enhancing the profile of Homewood Foundations social media and online presence. Finally the Foundation partnered with some wonderful donors on local projects like the Frederick campus Dog Park, a capital campaign in support of Wellness Center renovations in Martinsburg, and the Honor/Memorial Park at Spring House Estates. None of these 2018 accomplishments would have occurred without the kindness of donors like you. You play a critical role in Homewood’s ability to fulfill our mission and we thank God for each and every one of you. From our humble beginnings to our exciting future, you are each a major part of our story and I am proud to count you as friends. Merry Christmas to you and a blessed 2019!
get Don’t for s Annual Appeal od’ Homewo It’s not too late to add your support to Homewood’s Annual Appeal. Funds from this annual drive help to support Homewood Benevolent Care Endowment. The endowment ensures that Homewood can continue to fullfill its mission and provide care for those residents whose personal resources are depleted, through no fault of their own. This year, the Annual Appeal also offers an opportunity to support RLEEF (Resident Life Enrichment Endowment Fund.) We thank you for your generosity. For your convenience, a gift envelope is included in the publication.
Golf funds help to create dining spaces On a a pair of beauiful days earlier this year golfers, volunteers and sponsors showed their support of Homewood. And now the residents at those two campuses have beautiful new dining spaces to enjoy. Proceeds from the Martinsburg and Plum Creek golf tournaments were used to help pay for the renovation and creation of dining rooms at those two campuses, respectively. At Homewood at Martinsburg, the Springfield Dining Room (pictured in the three images in the top left corner) officially opened right before Thanksgiving and includes the kitchen/pantry, dining room and sitting area. There is a big
screen TV and a fireplace which make this wonderful space feel like home. The dining room is an open and welcoming space and Homewood residents can come and go as they please. They can meet with friends and family, play games, participate in planned activities, enjoy movies on the large screen TV, and so much more. At Homewood at Plum Creek, golf proceeds from the past two years were used in the renovation of a previously unused sun porch to double the size of the dining room in Care South. (Pictured in the bottom right) A second phase of the project converted another dining room into a Country Kitchen where food can be prepared and served.
New Year’s Wishes for 2019 The new year is the time for resolutions and wishes - perhaps a chance to start again with a clean slate. The Fireside wondered about the wishes Homewood residents have for 2019....so we asked. While this came as little surprise, we discovered that Homewood residents have a wide range of interests and causes that are important to them - with health and happiness chief among them. Martinsburg’s Helen Curran said, “My New Year’s wish as a mother, grandma and great-grandma is that all my family stays well, safe and happy for the coming 2019 year.” And she added, “I also wish people will show more kindness, love and care towards each other.” Along those same lines, Homewood resident Michael Roehm said, “In addition to the comprehensive wish for peace, joy, love, laughter, health, wealth and wisdom, I wish everyone to develop more empathy. Empathy provides the firmest foundation to counter the divisions, fears, aniumosities and violence plaguing our society and many others today.” Also addressing current events, Plum Creek’s Nancy McElwain spoke of the immigration issues facing our country. “May we all understand that there must be rules and laws governing immigration, but my wish is that we enact and administer them with compassion, love and caring.” And this wish from Plum Creek’s Patricia Miller: “This has been a prayerful year for me with friends and family residing in North Carolina, Florida, California, Haiti and my Palestinian Christian friends. I wish for a calmer 2019 in weather conditions and political strife. I pray that we are called to action, not only in words, but deeds. I pray we listen more for understanding and pray for wisdom before we speak.”
A number of Homewood residents are wishing for some of their health problems to subside. Lillian Myers of Homewood at Williamsport offered this heartfelt wish: “If I could wave a ‘magic wand’ and make a wish it would be, I wish that no child would ever have to suffer from a chronic or fatal disease....My prayer is that one of the great medical minds of the world would find a cure for those diseases that rob a child of the carefree years of childhood.” Our dog Tessa and her owners And a contingent of residents formed their wishes around life wish for a fenced dog park at at Homewood.

Story What the McElwains like most about RLEEF is that it brings special programming directly to residents. “Events you would have to pay for are free for residents.” Nancy said. For example, she said they had previously attended a concert presented by the same band - and had paid the admission. When the group came to Plum Creek she was gratified that RLEEF was there to make the whole event possible. “RLEEF is something that goes beyond what you would expect,” she said. And going beyond what one might expect is a trait that Nancy McElwain is very familiar with. After a career as an administrator
a t H o m e w o o d
(Continued from page 3) in a long-term care facility in Harrisburg, Nancy found herself volunteering at Homewood at Plum Creek. Her experience in the industry, coupled with the fact that she still held up-todate licenses for social work and nursing home administrator, led to an opportunity to earn a paycheck again as a social worker at Plum Creek. So she “unretired” and worked another 15 years. By the way, she continues to do the necessary continuing education to keep her licenses current believing one should never stop learning. “You need to keep up with what’s happening,” she said. Almost four years ago, the couple moved to a villa on the Plum Creek campus even while Nancy continued to

work part-time. “It was my husband’s idea to move here,” she said, adding she retired a second time shortly after the move. Nancy is one of a handful of former Homewood co-workers who have made the transition to Homewood resident. Since settling in at Plum Creek, Nancy keeps busy serving as secretary for the Resident’s Association and as a member of the RLEEF Committee. The committee is responsible for planning events, outings and activities that RLEEF was created to fund. And, of course, she’s always looking for ways to be kind.

Auxiliary prepares holiday plans Last year's Christmas Card Project was such a great success that it is being held again this year. Our church auxiliary members have been asked to sign Christmas cards, including their church's name and return them to Plum Creek. Small (flat) gifts items are welcome additions. After cards return to Homewood, Santa's Helpers get busy and address all the cards to residents in our skilled care and personal care areas. The Helpers who hand deliver them say residents delight in receiving the cheery cards and gifts. Helpers will even take the time to read and display the cards in residents' rooms. This is a wonderful holiday activity. Thanks to everyone involved! Plum Creek Auxiliary President, Ellen Lawrence attended the Dedication and Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for the new kitchen and dining room on the Care South Memory Unit on December 5. The Auxiliary donated more than $8,000 toward this project.
Plum Creek Auxiliary
The annual membership meeting of the Homewood at Frederick auxiliary was held in September with 59 attendees. Registration and breakfast were held prior to meeting. Chaplain Suzanne Morris gave the opening prayer. Lauren
Burton introduced the guest speaker, Lisa Mroszczyk Murphy, who gave a very interesting talk about the Historic Preservation in the City of Frederick. Executive Director Karen Main provided an update on the ongoing construction projects at Homewood at Frederick and the anticipated Lodge expansion. Liz Kannenberg, volunteer director and liaison to the auxiliary, thanked the auxiliary for their contributions to Homewood over the years. She said the auxiliary is the heart and soul of Homewood. Barbara Rhoads and Mary Lou Blessing gave a brief description on the auxiliary events of the past year, and the upcoming auxiliary events for 2018 and 2019. Pat Curchin, chair of our popular Wreaths Across America fundraiser, provided an update on this project. Membership chair, Diana Corl, gave an enlightening talk about the 2019 membership theme and enrollment. She connected this year’s theme, “You hold the key to success. Unlock the future with the Homewood Auxiliary” to the site of the original Homewood at Frederick which began in the Francis Scott Key Hotel in Frederick that was purchased in 1975 for $336,000. After approval by the auxiliary members present, Loberta Staley, president of the Homewood at Frederick Executive Board, installed Pat Curchin as the new treasurer of the executive board. The Homewood at Martinsburg Auxiliary held another successful Sub Sale in November. Not only are the subs delicious, but this
event also provides a great socializing opportunity. Sixteen volunteers get up at the crack of dawn to man an assembly line to put the subs together. The volunteers made 320 subs in less than 2 hours. They are made fresh, and everyone enjoys them! Christmas is a great time for the Auxiliary to express appreciation to the Martinsburg co-workers. Auxiliary members have assembled handmade gifts for each coworkers. The Auxiliary officers like to present them personally to the staff, and say “thank you for going the extra mile for our residents.” The Auxiliary has also provided gifts for Assisted Lifestyle and Health Care Center residents. It’s a joy to be able to bring some Christmas cheer to our Homewood family.
The Homewood at Williamsport Auxiliary is hosting two trees - one in the Health Care Center and one in the Community Center where individuals can honor loved ones by making a donation to the Auxiliary. And the Mitten Shop is open and filled with wonderful items for Christmas. We will continue our ministry with the Health Center into the new year. Thanks for all who support this wonderful ministry.
