Parkvue Community Appreciation Reception Recognizes Giving

SANDUSKY [Aug. 29, 2019] – Parkvue Community, a United Church Homes community, hosted its donor and volunteer appreciation reception on Aug. 20, 2019. The event honored individuals who donate time and offer financial support to the UCH mission.

This year, Parkvue gave the Spirit Award to Sharon Lichtcsien, a longtime volunteer and neighbor to the senior living community. The Spirit Award is presented to individuals who best exemplify the volunteerism, advocacy, inspiration and spirit for the residents and their families of United Church Homes communities.

In 1997, Lichtcsien, her husband and daughter bought a house across the street from Parkvue. In fall 2015, when Parkvue announced the opening of the indoor aquatic center, Lichtcsien stopped by to introduce herself to former administrator Ken Keller and asked if the community would be interested in offering a yogic pool session to residents. The rest is history. Three mornings a week, Lichtcsien shares her teachings with Parkvue residents.

Director of Activities Amy Difilippo provided a tribute to Sharon, explaining how dedicated she is to Parkvue.

“Sharon has never called off or not shown up when she was expected to lead water yoga classes,” Difilippo said. “Her consistency and dedication are quite welcome. … We are beyond blessed to have (Lichtcsien) in our midst.”

Lichtcsien thanked Parkvue for recognizing her volunteerism.

“A Spirit Award – if I was given any award in life, that is the best, especially with the life that I do live with my yoga friends,” Lichtcsien said.

In addition to thanking Lichtcsien, Parkvue dedicated its renovated walking path. Staff also recognized resident Georgianna DeNoewer, whose art from Opening Minds through Art was featured on the stone coaster gift for attendees. “I’ve always liked drawing and coloring,” DeNoewer said. “It relaxes my mind. … I like to see what’s in my mind when it comes out on paper.”

About 60 additional donors and volunteers attended the event. Rev. Kenneth V. Daniel, president and CEO of United Church Homes, praised them for living UCH’s mission, vision and values.

“Your gifts transform aging by helping us build a culture of community, wholeness and peace,” he said. “Your advocacy for the residents and families we serve at Parkvue Community makes a huge difference in their lives, each and every day.”

In 2018, over $40,000 in charitable donations were invested at Parkvue Community.


About Parkvue Community: Parkvue Community is a full Life Plan Community offering independent and assisted living, memory care, rehabilitation and skilled nursing care to nearly 200 older adults.
