CRAFTSBURY — After two years working on a much-needed walking path for residents, on June 2 the Craftsbury Community Care Center took delivery of a new gazebo.
Built by Town & Country Sheds of Wolcott, the gazebo sits centrally in the new walking area, and residents wasted no time trying it out in beautiful summer weather.
Former board member Norm Hanson put in many hours, along with Steve Pitkin and others, bringing this project to fruition.
The trail, gazebo, and five benches adopted by supporters were all worked on through the pandemic, so the center says it’s even more meaningful now as residents get out and about.
“It’s very rewarding to see the use of the trail and gazebo after such a long year,” said Hanson.
Laura Hill of Hillcrest Nursery, who manages the Care Center’s front gardens, installed plantings at strategic points around the pathway.
The Craftsbury Community Care Center, a non-profit residential care home committed to serving elders of all economic abilities, says they are proud of all the amenities it offers residents at this important stage of life.
Care Center staff and the board thanked the community for its support through the pandemic and say they are honored to serve community families in this critical capacity.
