Seniors “Go gemmin’” at the Homeplace of New Bern!

Have I mentioned how much I love my job? Although it’s more like an adventure than anything else!

Laura Johnson and I went “gemmin’” at the Homeplace of New Bern this afternoon.

As you can see from the video, it was a “fun-time” had by all, even a few spectators enjoyed seeing what gems were discovered!

The Homeplace of New Bern Assisted Living and Memory Care Retirement Community Team are always trying to come up with new ideas for people to enjoy senior living. I believe they “hit the ball out of the park” today!

Next week, Diane McKeel invited us to McCarthy Court Independent Living to join in the fun at their “Gemmin’ Party”. Stay tuned to see what we find!

Special thanks to: Director of Sales, Kathy Sirpilla; Executive Director, Pat Cartee; Activity Director, Melanie Noble; Activity Director Assistant, Sherri Gaskins; and Maintenance Director, Tom Tenney; and residents of Homeplace of New Bern for welcoming us to this fun-filled event!

About New Bern Now
Editor-in-Chief, Wendy Card, founded New Bern Now in April 2009. There were a number of reasons she developed the website. While stationed in Washington DC, she had 30 days to transfer to Naval Hospital Cherry Point and didn’t know much about the area. She was frustrated because there wasn’t a central location on the Internet for information about New Bern. Wendy retired from the Navy in Oct 2007. When our economy dived, she was trying to find her way in life and decided to give back to the community by creating a website that provided a “One Stop, Information Shop” to help people find out what’s happening in our community along with creating a free business listing to help business owners who couldn’t afford to advertise.
