Veterans Day: Bridgewater Retirement Community honors all those men and women who have protected and served our country through the military and Alternative Services, and we recognize today’s youth in and preparing for service. Thank you!

Each November, we celebrate our veterans with a special breakfast prepared for veterans living among and a program in the Houff Community Center at 210 Virginia Avenue, for all those who made a tremendous impact our world. Students in the Jr. ROTC program of Harrisonburg High School ROTC posted and retired the Colors. Members of the armed forces will be honored. Colonel (retired) Roy McCutcheon will be the featured speaker.

On Friday, an afternoon program was also held in Assisted Living, featuring veterans and music. Sgt. Wayne McDorman, Commander, American Legion Post 188, Sgt Bill Hamblin and Robin Schrock presented the colors. Morgan Dakin was guest vocalist. resident veterans shared their stories.

Bridgewater Retirement Community currently serves residents who range in age from 65 to 102, many of whom have served in the Armed Forces or in Alternative and Brethren Volunteer Services. Our veterans have made sure we can enjoy the privileges and rights granted by the Constitution of the United States and we thank them for their service.

We take our residents’ health very seriously and are committed to doing everything we can to protect our most vulnerable populations. It’s no secret that people aged 65 and older are at a greater risk for serious complications from influenza. So, with flu season upon us, we are doing all we can to reduce the risk here at BRC.

Bridgewater Retirement Community

A Fun Little History Fact: Nov 8, 1974
The Bridgewater Home Auxiliary was among the first of its type to be included in membership of the Virginia Association of Hospital Auxiliaries and affiliated with the national association. On Nov 8 1974, the Auxiliary paid off a $15,000 pledge to Bridgewater Home a year before it was due. At that time Auxiliary funds were raised from a Harvest sale on the grounds, including a bake sale of home baked goods, a gift shop, a swap shop, a coffee shop and a garden shop filled with local farm vegetables. They also held yard sales and sold country ham sandwiches. Their membership included a three state area, VA, MD and WVA, but because of distance, many participated largely by paying dues. TODAY, 44 years later, Bridgewater Home Auxiliary continues to be a strong supportive group through their generous contributions of money and time given by devoted Volunteers. They run our ReRunn Shoppe, Cottage Gifts and sponsor events throughout the year. Thank you Auxiliary members.
