The Village at Orchard Ridge Announcing Stellar 7 Over 70 Award Nominees

October 8, 2019

The Village at Orchard Ridge–A National Lutheran Community is unveiling the nominations for the inaugural Stellar 7 Over 70 Awards at a reception to be held at The Chapel at Orchard Ridge, A Center for Faith and Community Life on October 10, 2019 at 1 p.m. The Village at Orchard Ridge’s Chapel is located at 400 Clocktower Ridge Drive in Winchester.

The Village at Orchard Ridge received 18 Stellar 7 Over 70 award nominations, all of whom will be celebrated at the October 10 reception.

“We are thrilled with the enthusiasm and support the Stellar 7 Over 70 Awards have received from the Winchester, Frederick and Clarke County communities, and from many area civic clubs and faith organizations as well,” says Rebecca Lipscomb, sales director at Orchard Ridge and a member of the Stellar 7 Over 70 planning committee. “This is the first time our community has launched an awards program of this magnitude. We on the planning committee are over the moon with excitement about the caliber and number of nominations we received,” Lipscomb continues.

“Shining a spotlight on the contributions the Stellar 7 Over 70 nominees are making in their communities is an important first step in fighting ageism,” says Melissa Fortner, Executive Director for The Village at Orchard Ridge. “Since combatting ageism is central to our mission, it’s a huge honor to be able to share our nominees’ stories,” Fortner adds.

  • Intellectual Growth
  • Fitness and Health
  • Social and Community Involvement
