6-30-20 waupun christian home cancels august pie social

The Christian Home & Rehabilitation Center is cancelling its annual August pie social and car show due to uncertainties related to the COVID-19 pandemic.  “While we look forward every year to opening up our facility for this important fund-raiser, the safety and overall welfare of our residents and staff is currently our main priority,” according to Doug Trost, system vice president – Long Term Care, Post-Acute with SSM Health. “We are working diligently to protect our residents by dramatically limiting any potential exposure to COVID-19. We know that our supporters and community at large will understand.”    The pie social and car show has been supporting the Christian Home & Rehabilitation Center’s chapel, as well as resident services and programs. Proceeds from the 2020 event were originally planned to support purchasing stained glass windows for the chapel.  In previous years, the event has featured homemade pie and ice cream, BBQ sandwiches, beverages and classic cars.   “The Christian Home is so blessed to have such strong community for so many years,” says Sue Buwalda, Christian Home Auxiliary Board of Directors co-chairperson. “We treasure the many residents and families that we serve with quality long-term care services, and we are confident that this support will continue beyond COVID-19.”   The Auxiliary will revisit the event in 2021. Anyone interested in making an online donation to support the spiritual needs of residents can visit agnesian.com/giving or call (920) 926-4971.   The Christian Home & Rehabilitation Center, 452 Fox Lake Road in Waupun, supports long-term skilled nursing care, rehabilitation services, memory care and assisted living apartments.   Services are offered in new, roughly 104,000-square-foot facility along Highway 68. The facility features a two-story atrium lobby, chapel, kitchen, gift shop and bistro.  For more information, call the Christian Home at (920) 324-9051.
