The other day I was picking up my grandchildren at the bus stop and was lucky enough to meet Judy Owen who drives the bus they ride on. In my opinion, school bus drivers are unsung heroes. Honestly, I cannot even imagine driving a busload of noisy, energetic elementary school kids to and from school every day, but she loves it. Not only that, a number of them stopped to hug her on the way out. Pretty special! ➤ Check out Rich’s blog at facesofculpeperva.blogspot.com and Faces of Culpeper on Facebook
Culpeper Baptist Retirement Community has changed its name to The Culpeper, Executive Director Jim Jacobsen announced in a community meeting with residents April 6. “While we are proud of our Baptist heritage, we believe this name change better reflects where we are today — a community who welcomes and supports people of all backgrounds in the faithbased family atmosphere Culpeper residents have come to expect,” Jacobsen said. Built in the late 1940s, The Culpeper is the fulfillment of Dr. J. T. Edwards’ vision to assist Virginia Baptists in their retirement years. Since then, LifeSpire of Virginia (formerly Virginia Baptist Homes) has grown to four continuing care retirement communities in Culpeper, Newport News, Richmond and the Roanoke Valley. Each community provides a full continuum of care to address the changing health needs of seniors.
