Posted on November 29, 2010 in In The News
On November 29th, Westminster-Thurber held a dedication to celebrate the grand opening of the Resident Life & Arts Center in Thurber Towers.
Westminster-Thurber Executive Director Steven LeMoine welcomed residents, staff, donors, volunteers and community leaders to formally dedicate the new Resident Life & Arts Center located on Westminster-Thurber’s campus at 717 Neil Avenue. The renovation and expansion, funded primarily through private donations, is expected to enhance the well-being of Westminster-Thurber’s residents by enhancing the culture of community.
“We are grateful to our generous donors for this project -- a true blessing for our residents and those in the greater community,” LeMoine said.
This exciting renovation provides a fireplace lounge, community and conference centers, library, computer lab, art studio, fitness center, life enrichment center, medical services suite, corridor lounge, and indoor shuffleboard court. What’s more, most spaces benefit from a flood of natural light from large welcoming windows.
