Surrey's New Building in Devon
Surrey Services for Seniors has purchased a new building in Devon. The larger facility will allow Surrey to continue to expand the services it provides to the community and will provide additional opportunities to fulfill its mission of helping older adults live at home with independence and dignity and continue as active members of the community. The generosity of a member who loves Surrey and appreciates the work it does in the community helped make this possible.
Barbara Fentress, President and CEO, stated, “Surrey’s Board of Directors took this step as part of our strategic plan based on feedback from the community and the people we serve. We are responding to an increased interest in health and wellness and lifelong learning. We are incredibly pleased and excited about the opportunities. The new facility will be a true community center and will enable us to serve a broader reach of people.”
The 17,000 square foot building is located at 60 Chestnut Avenue in Devon, directly behind the BMW dealer and adjacent to the Devon Horse Show. Renovations are expected to take a year and Surrey is looking forward to continued support from the community.
Surrey plans on having additional classrooms to encourage lifelong learning and will broaden the scope of educational programs offered. Larger rooms will enable Surrey to offer an even greater variety of activities. A larger and more fully equipped Café will meet the nutrition needs of even more people, as well as be a fun and relaxed meeting place. The fitness center will be expanded and additional opportunities for exercise and fitness classes will be added. Surrey is also planning to have public and community meeting rooms.
