The Holmstad Celebrates 40 Years in Batavia
Aug 24, 2015 10:16 AM -
Forty years ago The Holmstad, which means ‘village within a village,' joined the small town of Batavia as a three-story senior living residence of 72 apartments. This month, the faith-based, non-profit continuing care retirement community celebrated its 40th anniversary with a week's worth of resident-centered activities, programming, and a ceremonial tree planting. Throughout the week, residents shared stories, memories and photos from the past. Using the new StoryCorps, Inc. app, they audio-recorded personal stories which will be downloaded and archived at the Library of Congress.
