Dear Friend,

As I write this letter, I am waiting for a flight to head home from my Aunt Ellie’s memorial service. Aunt Ellie was 91 and my mother’s eldest sister. Her remaining three sisters, 14 of 15 of my generation, and many more were in attendance to celebrate a life full of character, strength, and love.

One particular decision Aunt Ellie made stands out for my entire extended family. In 1957, through casual conversation, she learned of a place in the Adirondacks. She called her three sisters to encourage them to join her there, and they did. Sixty years later, this special place is where four current generations of family are truly connected – no matter where we are on this planet. We are family, we love each other, and we always support one another. That one decision, made by a very special and loving person, united these four families and created opportunities to ensure we weren’t just extended family, we were family. It made significant impact.

As I think about her decision, our weekend of family and celebrations of life, I am reminded of another decision made with love and determination many years ago that has been transformative for the Penick Village family. The decision to create, support, and fundraise for our Benevolent Assistance Program has blessed many lives exponentially. This year, we will provide approximately $1.6 million of financial assistance to those who have outlived their resources. This too is a decision made with character, strength, and love for which I, and many others, will be forever grateful. My hope is you will make a loving decision to join my wife, Severine, and me in making a special year-end gift of support for this compassionate program and for those whom it serves.

Thank you for believing in the Penick Village family and our mission; and always, if you have any questions, please never hesitate to contact me at 910-692-0354.

May you and those you love have a wonderful holiday season!
