From The Desk Of The Executive Director

I hope everyone had a very happy holiday season and is looking ahead to a great 2020. We had so many events here at DevonHouse, from brunch and photos with Santa, to groups of carolers bringing extra cheer!

The most fun part was seeing everyone out and about enjoying the festivities. Not only did I get to reconnect with many familiar friends and families, but I also had the privilege of meeting some special guests from out of town.

Thank you all for making the holidays so special by being a part of our community.

As I look ahead to 2020, I’m excited about the return of the many traditions that make DevonHouse such a wonderful place throughout the year.

Before we know it, we’ll be back out on the patio for lunch every Wednesday and planning for the luau!

All of us at DevonHouse look forward to a very happy year with you.

Let’s keep the momentum going in 2020 and make this the best year yet. The new year is the ideal time to return to healthy habits or reinvent yourself with healthy goals and resolutions.

If one of your resolutions is exercise, remember that we hold exercises six days a week at 10:00 am in the living room!
Or, perhaps your resolution is to get more involved? Be sure to check the activity calendar for familiar favorites and all that is new in the new year.
