Senior living community receives donation for The Orchard Ridge Chapel Capital Campaign

December 1, 2015

Winchester, Va., May 19, 2011 – The Village at Orchard Ridge (TVOR) celebrated its groundbreaking today off of Route 50/Northwestern Pike.

During the ceremony, Reformation Lutheran Church in New Market, Va., represented by Pastor Jeffrey Sonafelt, was recognized for a generous contribution of nearly $50,000. The donation, which was given by Reformation at the bequest of Virginia Stickley Estep, is the first to be designated for the Orchard Ridge Capital Campaign for the Chapel. Mr. and Mrs. Braswell, Mr. and Mrs. Gyauch, and Mr. and Mrs. Duesing, the founding residents, were also presented with the groundbreaking shovels and received commemorative gifts.

"We are excited to stand here today and make this neighborhood a reality,” stated Larry Bradshaw, Chief Executive Officer of NLCS. “This eco-friendly community will have a positive impact on the Winchester surrounding area by meeting the needs of the region’s seniors and their families, and providing a variety of new jobs including those in health care, construction and operations."

The Village at Orchard Ridge is expected to open in 2013. As a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC), it will offer residents three different levels of residential accommodations and care, ranging from independent living to skilled nursing. Phase I of construction, which is being conducted by Howard Shockey & Sons, will include 51 independent living cottage homes, built for LEED certification, and 127 apartments with home-based assisted living services, 18 memory support/assisted living residences and 10 private skilled nursing services residences. Phase I will also include The Chapel at Orchard Ridge. It will provide people of all faiths a place to worship and act as a gathering place for community conversations, music, cultural events and educational offerings. The Chapel will feature moveable seating, which can accommodate up to 180 people, and enclosed walkways to apartment residences and campus buildings.
