New Signs at Shepherd Home

After many months of anticipation, our beautiful new signs are in place. In addition to replacing our old sign on Five Mile Line Road, there’s now a second sign on Whalen Road that will let people know what Shepherd Home is and where we’re located.

Many thanks to our generous donors Carol and Steve Preston, whose willingness and enthusiasm to make this happen will always be remembered. Carol and Steve both value the importance of volunteering. Carol is a 12-year hands-on volunteer at Shepherd Home. She also volunteers for the Ronald McDonald House and serves Thanksgiving meals at Community Lutheran Ministry. Steve has served for more than two decades as a volunteer firefighter and EMT for the Penfield Fire Department.

Many thanks to those who planned and coordinated the installation: Shepherd Home board member Tim Murphy, Reverend Chris Streeter and Dan Costanza from the Episcopal Church of the Incarnation, and Jim Costello from the town of Penfield. We are also grateful to Joel Cuminale from TP signs in Fairport for the excellent design and workmanship.

The new signs will help increase community awareness of Shepherd Home and our mission to provide end of life care for the dying.

The signs also inform the community of our need for volunteers. We have cared for over 250 residents and we’re always looking for new volunteers to help with their time and talents.
