Seniors living in the community celebrate the reset with ribbon cutting, band music, cheerleading

COLUMBUS, Ga. (WRBL) – Oaks at Maple Ridge, a senior living community, was recently remodeled, according to Debbie Seeley of the Greater Columbus Georgia Chamber of Commerce. To celebrate, Oaks at Maple Ridge and the House chose to hold a ribbon cutting. As residents, staff and others watched from the front porch of the facility, cheerleaders and the band from Shaw High School performed several cheers and several songs.

“They reached out to us, and of course, they are our neighbors,” said Dr. Sureya Hendrick, principal of Shaw High School. “And it takes a village. They are part of our village. That’s why we came to help and support as much as we could.”

“All the wallpaper was removed, repainted, new floors and new furniture,” said Oaks at Maple Ridge Executive Director Stephanie Davis.

Free food and tours awaited all guests present. But before they could enter the building, Davis gave a speech.

“Faith, knowledge, compassion and love are the pillars on them,” she said. “I am proud to serve our residents and the Columbus community and lead in this mission every day. I want to say thank you to the Salabarria family of Oak Senior Living for choosing us. They invested a lot in this building, community and staff. To my regional directors, thank you for your constant support and encouragement. None of this would be possible if it wasn’t for my fantastic and dedicated staff who provide the best care to our residents every day.”
