We hope everyone is enjoying summertime at the Heritage Center. We’ve
had a few really hot days, and then some relief. Lots of rain… and lots of
sun. Beautiful flowers, foliage, and sweet birds singing. Its all good…
A special thanks to Robby Helfrich, a junior at Mater Dei High School.
Robby is working on his Eagle Scout rank and
came to us with a project proposal. The long and
short of it…. We now enjoy
a new garden area outside
the big windows in the Pavilion. Robby, with assist
from his team, came and
cleaned out the area, did
lots of trimming and prep
work, and installed a new multi-tiered pond and
water feature. Some new plants were added.
There are a few more changes and updates coming
to the garden area, but we would like to send a big
thank you to Robby for providing a beautiful garden
that will provide hours of enjoyment
for our residents and families. We
have multiple bird feeders and
butterfly bushes that are already
attracting birds and butterflies. By
the way, Robby’s stepmom works
here… Kabreea Helfrich,

We appreciate Anna’s
sweet spirit and look

I am daily watching for the goodness of God. I am not disappointed because I continually
see God’s goodness all around me. The harder the days the more of God we need and
the more He gives! There are seasons in our life when will feel like we will faint.
Our confidence must be in the promises of God. As we live and believe in the
promises we learn to rely on the on God’s goodness!
This summer in our Heritage Faith and Fellowship Group are studying
Psalms 91 which gives awesome promises of God’s care and protection.
In verse 4 it talks about God covering us with His feathers.
Oh how safe it is to be covered with His feathers!
These promises bring me great comfort
and I would encourage you to read the
91st Psalm with us and find the
promises you need for your life.
God is truly good and I see it all the time!!

On June 28th, we celebrated marriage at the
Heritage Center. Wedding dresses, table decorations, flowers, punch and a beautiful wedding
cake by Sweet Bettys made the afternoon
special. Love songs were sung by Deena Ashley
(along with our residents), prayer and blessings,
and photographs of some of our staff and residents at their own weddings were highlights of
the day. This special tea time also served as a
reception for our administrator, Britt Fehrenbacher, whose own wedding was just last month.
Britt Fehrenbacher…. The cake topper says,
“All of Me Loves All of You”
Beautiful love songs
