Where the Rails Cross the River
** FIREWORKS INFORMATION **
The Chillicothe 4th of July program will be moved to Three Sisters Park this year due to flooding.
The park will open at 4:00 p.m., vendors will be available, the opening address will be at 9:00 p.m.
and the show will start at 9:15 p.m.. Enter through the main entrance off of Route 29. Parking will
be in the field behind the red barn. Do not park along Rout 29 or in the front grassy area of
Three Sisters Park.
Chillicothe now has a long-awaited new facility that will meet the needs of a number of local residents. Evergreen Senior Living is opening this month, and with more than 50 units, will provide a much needed option for people who are at a point in their lives when they want some support. A 20-room memory care area addresses critical needs of those suffering from dementia.
Why is this important for our community? First, it fills a need in the immediate area for this kind of facility. Now for the first time, local residents can have an assisted living arrangement without having to relocate. They can stay close to family and friends, and get the support they need in their home community.
Second, the new facility creates jobs – more than 40. That payroll – along with the more than 100 jobs at the Heritage skilled nursing complex – has an economic impact throughout the community. These new jobs support existing jobs elsewhere.
Finally, at more than $12 million, the Evergreen Senior Living facility could easily be the single largest financial commitment in a project in the City’s history. Perhaps other companies will see this investment and consider Chillicothe as an opportunity for their business.
Evergreen Senior Living is a beautiful facility and a welcome addition to the community. If you have an opportunity to visit, I encourage you to do so.
And as always, do something good for your community.
