July 15, 2011 - Glenwood Receives Two New Team Members
Glenwood has welcomed two new team members to their retirement community.
Joe Lemon became the new executive director of Glenwood this spring. Joe comes to us from McConnelsville, Ohio where he was most recently executive director for The Abbot Home in Zanesville, Ohio. Joe has 23 years experience directing organizations that serve older adults. He received a bachelor’s degree in gerontology at Bowling Green State University.
Joe supervises all aspects of the retirement community including human resource, healthcare programs, financial and compliance with all regulations. He loves Marietta and is excited to share the benefits Glenwood has to offer.
“The community is friendly, active and vibrant,” says Joe, “and we look forward to showing you all we have to offer.”
Joe’s civic involvement includes membership in our Marietta Kiwanis Club where he is president. Joe previously served as Lt. Governor for the Ohio District’s Division 18, from 2007-2009, and as president of the Zanesville Kiwanis Club from 2006-2007.
Wendy Gray is the newest member of our team at Glenwood Retirement Community, being named our activities coordinator. In this role she selects, plans and coordinates a wide scope of wellness programs ranging from physical fitness to social, recreational and educational activities for our residents.
Wendy has 29 years of recreational work experience in a variety of settings including the YMCA, private tennis/healthclub, aquatics center, community health department and senior centers. Most recently she was owner of Living Well Pilates Studio and Yours to Adorn, an artisan jewelry and online business. Wendy received her degree in sports medicine and holds a secondary teaching certificate in health and biology.
Wendy’s philosophy is centered on offering activities unique to each of our residents so that our events, classes and activities nurture the mind, body and spirit. She encourages our residents to live happier, healthier lifestyles by becoming personally involved.
She has a full calendar of events lined up this summer and our residents have been taking advantage of this great sunshine. Activities include a wine tasting party, raising butterflies, a wading pool party, games, jewelry making, social hours and more!
At Glenwood, you can enjoy all the comforts of home as well as the freedom to travel, enjoy the companionship of others, pursue recreational activities and hobbies, and let someone else do the cooking, or simply retreat with a good book… all on your own terms. Round the clock security, meticulous grounds, a security system and a convenient transportation service are just a few of the benefits that add up to the unquestionable peace of mind of the Glenwood lifestyle.
Glenwood is a not-for-profit affiliate of the Memorial Health System, which includes the premier health care provider in the area, Marietta Memorial Hospital. With many resources and a staff of over 1,000 healthcare professionals, Marietta Memorial has been providing trusted healthcare to the Mid-Ohio Valley for more than 70 years.
