Hillcrest to support Parkinson’s Nebraska with Pancakes for Parkinson’s

Get ready to catch a flying pancake! Hillcrest Health Services is hosting a pancake
benefit for Parkinson’s Nebraska at Hillcrest Country Estates Grand Lodge on Saturday, March 18. From 8 to 11 a.m., The Pancake Man will be entertaining guests and serving up cakes of buttery goodness for a freewill donation.

All proceeds from the benefit will go to Parkinson’s Nebraska, a 501(c)3 charitable organization committed to helping those in Nebraska and surrounding areas who are affected by Parkinson’s disease. Donations to the organization are used to educate communities and caregivers through access to resources and information.

Hillcrest Country Estates Grand Lodge is located at 6021 Grand Lodge Ave in Papillion.

“We’re looking forward to participating with Parkinson’s Nebraska, a great organization that shares our mission of enhancing lives,” said Jim Janicki, Vice President of Marketing and Communications. “I always enjoy eating for a good cause.”

Local Artist Crafts Mural Tribute to Veterans

Veterans Tribute entranceWhen the Grand Lodge at Hillcrest Country Estates opened, it welcomed several retired military members, including retired General Leo Smith and CMSgt Jim McCoy, and their wives. The leadership team at the Grand Lodge knew they wanted to do something to honor all local veterans every day of the year. Together with a committee of resident veterans, including the Smiths and the McCoys, they planned a very creative use of space for this memorial tribute.

Local artist Richard Harrison crafted the Veteran’s Tribute mural that now spans the 40-foot hall at the Grand Lodge. The committee added shadow boxes containing donated uniforms and assorted medals worn in various eras by each branch of the United States military. Even more precious are the stories that came with the uniforms, each one sharing personal details about residents involved in historic conflicts.

“Photographs don’t do it justice,” said Curt Copple, administrator at the Grand Lodge. “Everyone is very pleased with how it turned out and touched by the thoughtfulness that went into the project. We invite the community to take a tour and see the wonderful project that resulted from creativity and local talent.”
