New Members Inducted at PPh’s Heritage Society Luncheon

Posted on: Nov 25, 2014

Members of The Philadelphia Protestant Home’s Heritage Society gathered for a luncheon in their honor on December 12.  The luncheon, which was to be held on October 30, was delayed due to Hurricane Sandy.

Bobbe Healey and Anthony cropped“The next generation of residents may never know your name, but they will be grateful for your commitment to PPh,” she said.    Roberta A. Healey, Simpson Senior Services Vice President for Philanthropy, past PPh Development Director and founder of The Heritage Society, was the keynote speaker.  She spoke about how valuable the philanthropy of the members of the Heritage Society is to the future of PPh.

New members S. Elizabeth Bonsall, Mary Fields, William Krai, J. Frederick and Gertrude Loeble, and Karl Loewe were inducted by Anthony Manzo, President and CEO, and Barbara Beckman, Chairperson of the Board of Directors.  Each received a certificate, a Heritage Society pin, and a copy of PPh Memories.  In addition, their names will be added to the Heritage Society plaque in the esplanade and a brick engraved with their name will be placed in “The Garden…”
The Heritage Society of The Philadelphia Protestant Home was established in 1990 and the name reflects our appreciation and admiration for those who had the vision to launch PPh.  Membership in the Society recognizes individuals who have made a deferred gift, such as charitable gift annuity, a bequest through a will, an IRA, life insurance or other gift which is made by a donor during his or her life and received by the Home after the donor’s death.

What Residents Say

"In my two years at PPh, I’ve grown to like it very much. At first, I felt like a stranger and then as I began to talk to people, we increasingly became good friends. A way to meet people is to join clubs. I’m now part of the PPh Auxiliary. I love helping with their flea markets because you never know what you can find. Recently, I’ve joined an evening quilting class. I love that I can continue to enjoy my life outside of PPh while experiencing the offers here.….especially the pool! Everything is just so convenient.

– Lucille Hite, Independent Living resident

What Families Say

"My mom is sooo happy at PPh, I can’t even describe it in strong enough words. She’s met so many new friends and these ladies do EVERYTHING together! She sees Dad every day in Pathways, but can have her life too. She’s gone to so many activities and I think I’ve already been to Scoops with her at least 15 times. She loves the dining room and Bistro too. My sister, Ilene, and I are so delighted that Mom is happy.......Wow, it feels like Mom’s been there about 2 years—but it’s only 2 months!! That’s how comfortable and natural it feels for her – and for all of us.

– Rhonda Frenkel, daughter of residents Jack & Bernice Segal
