Vassar-Warner Home to Celebrate 148th Anniversary with
$300,000 Renovation Unveiling and Ribbon Cutting Event September 19
In continuing its dedication to serving the needs of seniors in the Hudson Valley, Vassar-Warner Home announced the completion of the Home’s $300,000 renovation led by Mark Fumasoli of Transitional Builders, Inc., located in Staatsburg, NY. As part of a larger rebranding effort, the upgrades to the 3,300 square foot space come just as the residence celebrates its 148th anniversary later this month. The project, which will be completed October 1, is funded by the Vassar-Warner Home Foundation and includes updates to the residence’s grand parlor, resident bathrooms, first floor kitchenette and hallways. A full upgrade of the facility’s safety measures was also completed.
“This renovation is so important because it enables us to continue serving our residents with the highest level of care. The home not only looks and feels more welcoming, but the upgrading of the safety and security systems ensures our residents continue to thrive,” said Ericka Von Salews, executive director of Vassar-Warner Home. “
The newly renovated Vassar-Warner Home comes in tandem with the home’s 148th anniversary of serving senior citizens in Dutchess County and the greater Hudson Valley. The milestones have also prompted the unveiling of refreshed branding for the home, including new brochures, a Look Book and website, which can be accessed by visiting www.vassarwarner.org.
To reveal the completion of renovations, new branding and Vassar-Warner Home’s 148th anniversary, a celebratory ribbon cutting will be held on Thursday, September 19 from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at 52 S Hamilton St. Poughkeepsie, New York. To RSVP to the event, contact Christine at firstname.lastname@example.org or (845) 454-3754 by September 13.
