GOSHEN, N.Y. (Feb. 03, 2016) — The Glen Arden continuing care retirement community recently hosted a New Resident Welcome Reception honoring six residents who are new to the campus.

Over 70 friends and families of the honorees gathered to hear how their life experiences will make them pillars of the Glen Arden community in Goshen, according to Lois DiStefano, Glen Arden’s director of sales.

Honorees were:
