It’s hard to believe how quickly summer came and went. We are now in the autumn season and with that come changing leaves, cooler mornings and evenings, and those blasted allergies! Just a few short weeks back, Heritage Church celebrated its 8th birthday. Heritage Church has been meeting since September 19th, 2011 at Liberty Ridge. It has been eight years of Sundays. Eight years of ministry as an extension of Eastland Church in this community. Eight years of God’s faithfulness to us week in and week out. Eight years of countless lives touched with kindness, encouraged with love, and reminded time and again of God’s presence in residents’ lives. What an honor it truly is to be a part of this community of faith.

As we look ahead, we are continuing in our Sunday series on the 23rd Psalm. We are taking the words of the Psalmist and applying them to our lives today, as we need the Good Shepherd’s presence day by day. I hope that if you do not have a place to be on Sunday mornings that you will spend some time with us. Service begins each Sunday at 10 a.m. in the dining hall of Liberty Ridge. We would love to have you join us!

 

If there is anything, I can do for you, please do not hesitate to let me know! You can reach me via email, Justin@eastland.org, or my office phone: ext. 260, or (859)519-4950.

 

Blessings,

 

Pastor Justin

Greetings,

 

October is one of my favorite months!  The fall season brings cool, crisp temperatures and beautiful, falling leaves.  Be sure to check out our October calendar for details about some favorite fall activities!

 

We take extreme pleasure in announcing the appointment of a new manager    for our Heritage Garden!  Please join us in congratulating, Suzanne Schroerlucke, for her promotion to our Heritage Garden Manager.  Suzanne has achieved great things with the improvement of our Heritage Garden programming and the daily care of our residents.  Her leadership capabilities, along with her wealth of knowledge and servant’s heart, makes her the perfect choice!  Feel free to visit Heritage Garden and wish Suzanne best of luck in her new role. 

 

I am excited to announce our new Dining Services Manager, Lance Lusher!  Lance is very familiar with the services and values of Liberty Ridge, as he served in the capacity of our Dining Services Manager in the past.  We look forward to Lance bringing his leadership and experience to our food service program and, once again, becoming part of our Liberty Ridge family.  If you have not already, please stop by to meet Lance and welcome him back home!

 

Have a great October!

Welcome our New Residents

 

Welcome our New Resident –  Janet McCutcheon

 

Liberty Ridge welcomes Janet McCutcheon to her new Garden Home at 748 Liberty Ridge Lane. Janet is an Ohio native, born and raised in the small town of Gettysburg, Ohio. After graduation, Janet spent three years in Cincinnati, in nurses training. Janet used her training as a Polio Nurse Supervisor at Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton, Ohio. After three years, Janet decided to further her nursing education and attended Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio. She was quickly recruited as a Polio Nurse Supervisor at OSU Hospital. While in Columbus, Janet attended the First Community Church and was introduced by the minister to her future husband, Dick Conrad. Dick and Janet were married in 1957.   Janet followed Dick to Nashville where he studied ministry at Vanderbilt University.

 

A few years later, the couple moved to Kawkawlin, Michigan where Dick ministered a small church. It was in Michigan that their first child, Heather was born. After spending two years in Michigan, the couple followed a call to ministry in Chicago, where two more children were born, Holly and Chris.

 

Finally moving back to Columbus in 1964, their youngest child, Craig was born. While in Columbus, Janet worked as a float nurse at Grant Hospital. During their 10 years together in Columbus, Dick suffered three heart attacks and at the age of 46, died of a fatal heart attack.

 

Janet worked as a critical care nurse at Columbia Hospital before being recruited to a friend’s practice as a psychiatric nurse. During thistime, Janet was introduced to John McCutcheon. The couple hit it off and were married in 1977. Tragedy struck again for Janet when she lost her beloved John in 1987.

 

 

Janet moved to a beautiful home in the woods on 15 acres in London, Ohio. She lived in London for 15 years before moving back to Columbus. After 13 years in Columbus, she moved here to be near her daughter, Holly and her lifelong friend whom we all know, Jane Eberwein.

 

Janet loves to socialize, she also enjoys reading, watching sports, and anything to do with the arts.

 

Welcome our New Resident –  Elaine Turenne

 

Elaine Moore Turenne was born in McDowell, Ky. Her family lived for a few years in Paintsville, KY and a few years on a farm near Seaman, Ohio. Elaine’s family finally settled in Lexington where she graduated from Layfayette High School.

 

Elaine attended college at the University of Kentucky, eventually earning her Master’s Degree in Education.  In her early years of college, Elaine vacationed in Quebec where she met a young R.C.M.P. gentleman named, Roy Turenne. The couple had a brief courtship before marrying. Elaine moved to Canada where the couple lived in Montreal, and Campbellton, New Brunswick for the next year and a half.  The young couple moved back to the U.S. and settled in Lexington before their first of five daughters were born.

 

Elaine stayed very busy writing poetry, teaching, and working as a real estate broker. Elaine has a passion for writing and is a published author. She has taught writing courses at many of the Fayette County high schools, at the University of Kentucky, and Kentucky State University.

 

Elaine loves talking with people and giving poetry readings. We are blessed by her fun-loving outgoing spiri
