Manor honors Donahue for years of board service Avera Heritage Manor honored Jim Donahue on Sunday, July 24 at the nursing home.
An open house and reception was held from 2 to 4 p.m., with a short program at 2:30.p.m.
Several board members expressed their appreciation to Donahue for his over 25 years of service as a governing board member.
Donahue has seen the facility grow from a 45-bed supervised living facility which opened in September of 1979 to its present operation. Today the nursing home is a skilled nursing facility. It also has a six-bed addition that houses assisted and independent living rooms on the northeast corner of the complex as well as a four-unit apartment attached to the southeast wing of the original building.
There have been several other internal additions and remodeling that have included expansion of the dining room, an addition to the lounge area and the addition of several office rooms and a new main entrance.
Current board members include: Jill (Steve) Johnsen, Carol Pollman, Cheryl Knudsen, Cathy (Charlie) Logue, Margo (Tom) McCue, Mike Nelson, Dianne Axlund, Jim Nielsen and Warren Kuhler.
