New location to better serve families in the region

A Ribbon Cutting ceremony was held yesterday, 4/11/19, at the new location in Waterford for Aseracare Hospice. Not only their new location but the 15 year anniversary of taking care of many hospice patients and their families. 

At AseraCare Hospice, they combine a foundation of clinical excellence with exceptional care and compassion to help patients and their families, especially in several areas.  These areas include personal care assistance, rehabilitation therapy, nursing care, bereavement counseling, spiritual support, pet & music therapy, nutrition counseling, and social worker counseling.  No matter the circumstances, their goal is always the same: They strive to reduce the stress on individuals and family members so people can make the most of every moment. 

Aseracare Hospice is celebrating its 15 year anniversary of having the honor of taking care of many beautiful hospice patients and their families.  They are now serving patients in 7 counties that include:  Erie, Crawford, Venango, Clarion, Forest, Warren and Mercer. They celebrate Veterans with special ceremonies and celebrations.  They pride themselves with treating each of their patients and their families with love, dignity, and respect.  

Congratulations to all. You provide an amazing service to families in our region.

April Connect 4 Coffee

Thank you to Cannon's Chophouse for hosting our morning business building event. A sold-out crowd enjoyed a breakfast that was just a sampling of the brunch menu served at Cannon's on the weekend as well as networking with members in attendance.

A little about our host; Cannon's Chophouse opened the Erie restaurant on Peach Street last July, their third location. Locally owned and operated, the original restaurant is in Meadville and another in South Point south of Pittsburgh. They claim the best happy hour deals around and have a private room for business meetings, office gatherings, and other events. Their commitment is sensible prices, a 'come as you are' atmosphere, and most importantly to them the high level of food and service. 

What we learned about our members:

  • Spencer House owners Steven and Lisa Freysz are new to the area having purchased the Bed & Breakfast last August. Built in 1876, the historic Spencer House has 6 rooms with private baths, and you get a delicious hot breakfast the morning of your stay, making it a true B & B.
  • Rainbow International Restoration's Erie location is just one of 400 in the franchise across the U.S. and Canada. They specialize in clean up from fire, water, and mold damage mainly through insurance claims, but not limited to insurance claims.
  • Farmers Insurance has been around for 90 years, but in Pennsylvania for only 9. They are looking for people who want to be business owners and offer a vast training and bonus program for new agent owners. The company sets the new agent up for success!

Thank you again to our host, Cannon's Chophouse, for being gracious hosts. We truly appreciate you!
