Heartfelt stories from adored residents and dedicated staff
Read and feel the warmth of those who call Hearthstone their home
Dick Hattan, Development and Marketing
While his duties at Hearthstone include a full plate of fund raising, marketing and public relations activities, Dick Hattan presides and preaches once a month at the Ecumenical Worship Service at Hearthstone Village. He volunteers his time on the second Sunday of the month because he enjoys preaching to an attentive group of seniors and sharpening his skills as a minister. Dick was ordained a priest one year ago and engages in a variety of ministries including bringing God’s Word to the residents of Hearthstone Village. The residents enjoy his energetic style of preaching and his ability to get to the point and drive it home.

She always shows up in her classroom with a big smile on her face. Jenny is a perfect example of a team player and someone who always goes the extra mile. Jenny has worked in most of our classrooms, and will do anything that is asked of her. Jenny also takes great initiative. If she sees something that needs to be done, she does it.
