St. John’s Retirement Village Receives Major Gift from Local Benefactor
Woodland, CA – St. John’s Retirement Village, a leading provider of Assisted Living and Skilled Nursing services to support healthy aging was the recipient of a generous donation in the amount of $137,000 from the estate of George W. Hinkle.
After serving in the U.S. Navy, George attended San Jose State University, where he received a degree in business. After earning a teaching credential, he enjoyed many years of teaching and was particularly passionate about helping young people overcome challenges due to low self-esteem. After retirement, George pursued tap dancing, of which he once stated, “I found my true calling!” George continued to share his love of dance well into his 90’s, providing dance instruction and impromptu performances for his many friends at St. John’s Retirement Village.
“We are grateful for George’s gift, which will allow us to expand our Life Enrichment offerings and provide more seniors with innovative, engaging programming!” stated St. John’s Executive Director-Wendy Starr. “The donation will be used primarily to promote physical fitness and healthy living.”
St. John’s was established in 1964 to provide seniors in the Woodland area with a safe and supportive living environment in which to achieve the highest quality of life as they age. St. John’s collaborates with Woodland area non-profit organizations, and also offers free and low cost Life Enrichment, Fall Prevention and Chronic Disease Self Management programs to area seniors.
HANS PETER-DAILY DEMOCRAT The renewed library takes spans a decent amount of the village, and is attached to the chapel. Residents will have full access to a variety of literature.
Senior citizens at St. John’s Retirement Village peered through their bifocals at Norman Callaway as he rededicated the campus’s library on Monday. They couldn’t squint too hard — they had to save their eyes for an abundance of new books.
Callaway, one of the library’s docents, explained that the library received many new books while getting rid of some of the older copies.
“We got rid of books that were over 100 years old,” Callaway said. “We also removed books with size six font or smaller. We couldn’t read them even when our vision was good.”
The assortment of books takes up a decent amount of the campus’s Southwest building on West Woodland Avenue, and located just outside the chapel.
Docents of the old stock figured the collection needed a fresh selection, as well as fresh faces Lois Forbess and MarLyn Mainard assumed positions as new library docents.
Callaway said the system works like a normal library, but without all the hassle of check-outs and check-ins; just good faith and a “book return” shelf should be enough to keep the place tidy.
“We’re all on honor systems and faulty memories,” he said.
After Callaway’s brief introduction, residents gathered to share favorite books and fond memories.
