Open House Celebration Draws More Than 200 Visitors
Wyoming’s newest Assisted Living Center in Dubois Opens!
More than 200 enthusiastic visitors from Dubois, Riverton, Lander, and other Wyoming cities converged on Warm Valley Lodge to tour the new assisted living facility and enjoy more than four hours of festivities during the official Open House on Sept. 14.
“We’re absolutely thrilled at the turnout and the reception the Lodge and staff have received,” exclaimed Director Dr. Ann Green. “We have all been looking forward to this ever since Gov. Mead came to Dubois on July 3 for our Grand Opening, and it’s just been wonderful.
“The Open House hours were officially from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., but many guests were coming through the doors before 10, and quite a few remained after it was supposed to be over. Once we started serving lunch, it didn’t take long for all the tables to fill up with visitors.”
Visitors received staff-guided tours of the 23-bedroom, 26,000-square foot lodge, had the opportunity to visit with some of the Lodge residents and see how they’ve furnished their private apartments, and enjoy a free hotdog-and-chips lunch.
Youngsters were able to sit in the helicopter used by Classic Lifeguard Aeromedical Services, while Riverton radio station KTAK, Wyoming’s Big Country 93.9, broadcast live throughout the celebration, and interviewed not only several Lodge staff members but also a number of guests.
Warm Valley Lodge has received inquiries about residency requirements from many other states and from as far away as Argentina, despite only having admitted its first resident in mid-July.
