On a Friday evening in December, residents and their guests agreed that Homeland’s annual holiday party has all the makings of a family gathering at home.

Jackie Roy brings grandmother’s lessons to work and life.

Jackie Roy’s grandmother taught her how to cook and how to bake a cake from scratch. More importantly, Lula Mae Sellers taught her granddaughter lessons in being a good manager.

“If you’re ever in charge of people,” she would say, “treat your staff well, and they’ll work well for you.”

Farm life was never dull for Homeland Resident Theodora Howarth

Theodora Howarth lived a good life, growing up on a farm in New Jersey. The work was endless, but, “somebody has to get those eggs from those chickens.”

“You can’t stop, because if you did, you lost everything,” the Homeland Center resident recalls. “We had a good time. We worked hard.”

Homeland Center owes its renown, in part, to the expertise and enthusiasm of its board members. Now, it says goodbye to two who have been central to upholding Homeland’s commitment to excellence.

Homeland thanks Kelly Lick, Board of Managers 2014 to 2017, and Gail Siegel, Board of Trustees 2004 to 2017, for their service. Both are leaving their board positions, with vows to continue supporting Homeland.
