Nifty Bar donates new sign

Many of you have probably passed a large tan building on Whitney Road W and wondered what Nifty Bar, Inc exactly is. Nifty Bar is a cutting and grinding machine operation that services machine shops throughout the Northeast. Thanks to the generosity of NIFTY BAR, visitors to our front door are now welcomed by our new SHEPHERD HOME sign. Retired former owner Grant Gillette managed the project along with business partner Raymond Dreher. The new owner, John Raimondi, provided the funding. David Ferro, a longtime Nifty Bar employee, designed the sign. Our new and reformatted sign was painted by Rochester Vibratory and installed in May. We are so grateful to all those who donated their resources, time and talent to this project, including SH volunteers, Jeff Burns, Dave Sloman, Bob Hesselberth and Chan Philbrick.




2013 Plant Sale
The weekend of May 17-19 saw Shepherd Home grounds turned into a wonderland of color-hanging baskets, annuals and perennials graced our landscape. Over 200 supporters came to purchase their plants and mingle with friends and SH staff and volunteers. We are grateful to John Anderson Farms who supplied the beautiful hanging baskets and annuals as well as to those who shared perennials from their gardens. Paul Anderson, Lee Vester, Ann and Gary Ras, Oksana and Britt Carpenter and many other volunteers put in countless hours to make this a wonderful community event!

Charity Golf Tournament
Despite the uncertain weather, a great time was had by all at the COMMUNITY ANNUAL CHARITY GOLF TOURNAMENT on June 17 sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Penfield-Perinton Foundation and the Town of Penfield Staff Volunteers and hosted by Shadow lake Golf and Racquet Club. Proceeds will benefit several charities, including Shepherd Home.
Congrats to Harley Students!

Congratulations to The Harley School hospice students who graduated on June 13 -- we wish them the very best as they head off to college!

Shepherd Home has been graced with their presence and the loving care they have extended to our dying residents. The skills they have learned in their hospice classes and the experiences they have had here at SH will serve them well no matter where life takes them.

Their compassion and youthful energy has blessed us all and we will miss them!
