I first met Bill Womble in 1977. I was working at the Moravian Home, now Salemtowne, and provided a tour for Bill and a small number of lively others. They were fact-finding for the new enterprise they were undertaking that would locate a new United Methodist retirement community on property donated for that purpose by the Children’s Home. I was twenty-five years old. Bill was a towering figure then. He remains so today.

To speak of time’s ever-flowing stream borders on cliché. My mind resorts to it as I contemplate the blink of time since Arbor Acres’ founding to its reaching in 2015 the milestone of its 35th year of service to residents. In the intervening period, Arbor Acres has roared from project to project, negotiated boulders of change, traveled over dips and falls, always in service to the one and only constant that has sustained it over the white water of time. All involved have kept their eyes focused firmly on our irrevocable mission of service to seniors.

This year in which we marked both the 35th anniversary of the opening of Arbor Acres and the 40th anniversary of the corporate founding for which Bill and others labored so heartily in 1975 contained the customary blend of challenges and opportunities. Board member Dek Driscoll, resident Bill Ball, and a dedicated Capital Campaign Committee, pressed forward with solicitation of gifts to support the renovation of facilities that serve Arbor Acres’ frailest residents. Because of the generosity of many, the Campaign exceeded the goal by almost $1million. The renovation of Fitzgerald, named for Ernest Fitzgerald, a beloved founder of Arbor Acres, launched in March 2015. The project continues and by November 2016 will deliver to residents frail of body and mind a home rich with beauty, stimulating to the senses and soothing to the soul.

Like all the years before it, 2015 brought challenges of delivering excellent services at a cost affordable to as many people as possible. We conducted surveys of residents and staff through which we learned specific ways we can

The Challenges and Opportunities at Arbor Acres

David PinerPresident

make Arbor Acres an even better place to live and work. The information generated enabled Arbor Acres to take steps to improve efficiency while preserving the delicate balance between cost and quality. The attention paid this year in particular to making Arbor Acres better in ways both large and small represents an enormous investment of time on the part of residents, staff, and the Board of Directors. We look for dividends from this investment throughout 2016 and beyond.

In 1985, when I first joined the staff of Arbor Acres, Bill Womble was 69 years old and I was 32. In 2015, Bill turned 99. I am now 63. Ours has been a long and complex journey, often a push-and-pull across crevasses of differing opinions and styles. But through the decades we have been bound by the certainty that Arbor Acres exists for a noble purpose worthy of our labor and demanding of the best we have to offer. I don’t believe for a second either of us has yet fallen short in our dedication of our highest selves to advance this great mission. As Bill glides gracefully through his 100th year, as Arbor Acres progresses through its 36th or 41st depending on your method of reckoning it, I am journeying through my 32nd and final year of service to this extraordinary community.

Look, now, at the two of us on the cover of this report. We are warmed by the presence of Vicki Hunt, who served as Chair of the Board in 2015. We both look happy, do we not? It’s because, like Mary in scripture, we both chose “the good part” - the dedication of our lives to the Holy and the compassionate. In life, there is no greater fulfillment than that.

With best wishes and LOVE,

Arbor Acres might not be here today except for the foresight and passion of William F. “Bill” Womble. If you ask him, with characteristic understatement, he will tell you that he “thought a retirement community in Winston-Salem was a good idea and several others (namely Ralph Stockton, Bishop Ernest Fitzgerald and the Board of the then Methodist Children’s Home) agreed.” Bill also knew time was of the essence. He had recently learned folks in the Asheville area were in the process of obtaining approval for a “home” in that area. He knew if plans were not presented simultaneously to the Western North Carolina Conference, it might be years before another would be approved in the Conference. Bill wrote and presented the successful resolution that led to the creation of the founding Board of Directors of the Triad United Methodist Home (now Arbor Acres). And the rest is history.

Bill already had earned a reputation for getting things done. Over the years he served on the Board of Directors of such organizations as The Children’s Home, High Point University (he is now in his 66th year of service on that Board) and Senior Services. He was a member of the North Carolina House of Representatives from 1953-1958. For many years he provided legal services as Attorney for the City of Winston-Salem. Along with other community leaders, in 1952 he got behind and advanced the notion that physically disabled children needed quality education. Through his efforts and that of such distinguished citizens as Emil Shaffner and Courtland Davis (who presently resides at Arbor Acres), The Children’s Center for the Physically Disabled sprang into being.

At the forefront of Bill’s decision to push for a Methodist retirement community in Winston-Salem lay concern for servants of the United Methodist Church, both lay and clergy, who lived modestly and who wanted to remain close to the communities in which they had spent their lives. Today, Arbor Acres is home to 420 residents - many of them United Methodist - but also including large numbers with varied denominational and religious backgrounds. “And we all live well together.” Bill states.

Bill and Jane, his wife of 68+ years, never intended to make Arbor Acres their home. In 1997, however, a house came available that suited their needs. They lived together there for fourteen years until Jane’s death in 2010. Subsequently, Bill married Allan Hollan, the widow of his closest friend Bill Hollan, and together they now share the Arbor Acres residence that the Hollans built in 1998. As close friends over many decades, Bill and Allan Womble share a bond deepened by long history, rich memories, and lasting appreciation of their long prior marriages to beloved others.

In October of this year Bill will celebrate his 100th birthday. If you stop by Arbor Acres you might catch him checking his mail, delighting in an ice cream cone, or enjoying a wonderful meal with Allan. He still drives, recalls the past in meticulous detail, dresses snappily, and converses with wit and charm.

We treasure Bill for his genius, we honor him for his generative mind and pioneering work that brought Arbor Acres into being, we cherish him for his compassion for people in need, and we celebrate his contribution to countless lives through the ongoing work of Arbor Acres.

A Masterful Centenarian

THE HERITAGE SOCIETY At the heart of Arbor Acres’ mission lies a commitment to serve those living here with care, kindness, and love. Ensuring the continuation of a place where each resident has the opportunity for an enhanced quality of life rests upon the support of many people. The Heritage Society, created by the Board of Directors almost two decades ago, represents 130 individuals and families who have made a commitment to Arbor Acres in one of three ways:

~ Through their estate plans. Gifts (purposefully of $15,000 or more) can be made through wills, charitable trusts, annuities or life insurance.

~ Through the creation of a Named Fund ($15,000 or more) within the Financial Assistance Endowment Fund.

~ Through lifetime giving of $100,000 or more.

What Unites Us is a Spirit of Generosity, and a Need to Give Something Back

Arbor Acres cares about community – both on campus and in Winston-Salem and Forsyth County. The residents, staff and Board of Directors believe outreach is critical to good living. It serves our mission well. It makes our lives complete.

In 2015, items donated to Goodwill Industries were valued at $7,100. Among the donations were household items, books, clothing, shoes and small appliances. Arbor Acres also sent used furniture, kitchen cabinets, kitchen shelving, doors and windows to Habitat for Humanity. Large quantities of books were sent to the Shepherd Center for resale.

Arbor Acres supports other community non-profit organizations in a variety of ways. In 2015, the following organizations either held meetings in or otherwise benefited from use of Arbor Acres facilities: Forsyth Technical Community College, Winston-Salem Rescue Mission, Mount Tabor United Methodist Church, Kiwanis Club, Torch Club, Home Moravian Church, Piedmont Craftsman, Audubon Society, Crisis Control and Senior Services.

In 2015, resident council approved fundraisers generated a total of $149,875 for the benefit of charitable causes in the local community.

Arbor Acres remains actively involved in a wide variety of charitable initiatives both on campus and within the greater community. This is a meaningful part of Arbor Acres’ mission. We help ourselves by helping others.

With the addition of Lisa O’Donnell as Director of Recreational Arts, Arbor Acres took the concept of “time away from home” to a brand new level. And we don’t mean the addition of more trips across town for ice cream… we mean time spent in New York City, Myrtle Beach, and Asheville!

Soon after she joined Arbor Acres, Lisa began organizing an October New York City theater tour for residents. Fifteen residents jumped at the opportunity to see three plays: the historic Hamilton, the iconic An American in Paris and the hilarious Something Rotten. Between shows, the group visited the 911 Memorial and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, where they enjoyed Sunday brunch in the Museum Member’s Club.

The residents dined also at The French Culinary Institute, delighting in a five-course meal prepared for them by professional colleagues of Arbor Acres’ Chef Daniel Smith. Along the way the residents visited The Whitney

Museum in its architecturally stunning and recently opened new quarters. Of the trip Lisa says, “I would say on a scale of one to ten, it was a twenty. All the residents needed to do was show up and everything else was done for them.”

Lisa’s professional life includes ten years at Bermuda Village as Fitness and Activity Director, and most recently, nine years at Salemtowne as Activity Director for Health Care and Assisted Living. She received her Bachelor’s Degree from UNC-G.

With boundless energy and a passion for helping residents to stay active and on their feet, Lisa is ready action. Her driving purpose, and that of her skilled and talented Department, is to see that others are also.

Off Your Rocker? Better Believe It!

Dogs commonly are regarded as man’s (and woman’s!) best friend. Arbor Acres couldn’t agree more. We brag about the “pet friendly” community and readily advertise the 80+ acres of green space where residents and their leashed partners can roam and explore on a daily basis.

In 2015, at the request of resident dog owners, Arbor Acres opened a dog park, the Arbor Acres Barkway. The May 15th opening celebration drew residents, staff, and dogs alike, all coming together and shedding their leashes for a joyous romp across the lawn. Refreshments, including specially made doggie treats baked in the Arbor Acres kitchen, were served. The dog treats were so enticing that a few of the human companions couldn’t resist taking a taste. Word is they were better than the people treats.

David Piner shared a few dedicatory words, after which Bert Sanders, one of Arbor Acres’ chaplains, conducted a blessing of the animals. The dogs seemed to consider the latter unnecessary as they never doubted they were blessed. They sniffed, licked, and frolicked while their companion humans laughed and took pictures. Then all went home with bellies full and hearts overflowing.

It is hard to believe 2015 is behind us. We continue to be blessed by a wise, active Board of Directors, tremendous support from energetic and accomplished residents, donors who care deeply, and staff members who perform excellently.

The Essential Promise Campaign to renovate Fitzgerald and its component parts, Strickland Place which serves residents who require skilled nursing and Arborview, where residents with dementia receive specialized care generated amazing results - as of March 1, 2016 - $3,837,266 and still counting. The project will be finished on schedule, no later than November 2016, and within budget, bringing new life and hope to the residents who call it “home”.

The Annual Fund, which includes the annual Mother’s Day Offering, hit a new record high - $384,204. These funds bring peace, dignity and care for the residents who lack financial resources. This is the essence of Arbor Acres’ mission.

Arbor Acres continued to offer residents enjoyable, first-rate, intellectually stimulating programming. The 2015 Live and Learn calendar included Dr. Russell De Young from NASA Langley Research Center, Dale Pollock from UNCSA, Jon Sawyer, Exec. Director for the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting, Dr.

Miles Silman, Founder of the WFU Center for Energy, Environment, and Sustainability, and Paul Brown, formerly with NPR Morning Edition.

This year promises to bring many new challenges. Arbor Acres must maintain and enhance its already top-tier services and amenities. We must work throughout the continuum of care to make certain all residents are experiencing lives that feel full and purposeful. The Resource Development Committee is exploring new avenues of generating support for the greater numbers of residents who will need financial help over the coming years. This connects us to the charitable heart of Arbor Acres.

I continue to be inspired daily. Thank you for sharing my passion for Arbor Acres and for supporting its mission generously.

What a Year to Celebrate!

On behalf of the Board of Directors, I am excited to thank each and every one listed in this report for your generous support for Arbor Acres. In supporting this wonderful organization you are contributing to the well being of our greatest assets, our residents. Every action taken by your Board is driven by a clear and strong focus on insuring the absolute best for those we serve and those who serve them. That has always been our commitment, and it will not waver going forward.

A great example of this pledge is the Fitzgerald project we are confident will be a blessing to our residents in Strickland Place and Arborview as well as to their families. We know such large renovation projects, while necessary and worthwhile, are also disruptive; we appreciate the patience so many have shown as we move toward this project’s completion.

Planning for additional projects and innovative programming is well underway. We look forward to announcing these exciting new plans in the coming months. Please know that the Board is keenly aware of the many responsibilities we have to maintain and improve our facilities and programming to support the needs of our residents, and to insure that we are positioned to meet the needs of future residents. In meeting

these responsibilities, we are acutely attentive to maintaining and strengthening Arbor Acres’ strong financial position.

The coming year will bring us the opportunity to celebrate David Piner’s time with us at Arbor Acres, a commitment that will span 32 years, and to take on the challenge of identifying his successor. Work has begun to insure that this critical transition is accomplished in a manner that honors our past and sets a high standard for the future. We look forward to providing updates as this process unfolds.

I am excited about Arbor Acres as we move forward and encourage everyone to join me in thanking our residents, our staff, our volunteers, our supporters, and the broader community for helping make this such a special place – thank you!

Thank You for Supporting Our Wonderful Organization

Dale E. “Dek” DriscollChair, Board of Directors

And so it is at Arbor Acres.

Rick Dobrowski, Director of Dining Arts, arrived at Arbor Acres with a vision. “I want our restaurant(s) to be the best in town.” Clearly the competition of other restaurants in the community did not bother him. He put his skill and experience to each plate and, voila – the fun began.

Residents experienced many changes in 2015 beginning with the planting of an herb garden and followed by the “farm to table” concept through the use of local suppliers for fresh vegetables, poultry, and grains. The small renovation of the servery in Lakeside, the precursor to a larger redo to come, provided additional space for freshly grilled items as well as other aesthetic enhancements.

The addition in 2015 of Daniel Smith as Chef provided icing on the cake. Daniel and Rick (both graduates of renowned culinary institutions) agree on a common goal and philosophy. “Meal time is the center of life at Arbor Aces, and each meal should be exciting for the residents.” Daniel

states. “We want to provide joy in every bite and pleasure in the dining experience.”

Dining at Arbor Acres takes place in multiple venues across campus. Lakeside Dining offers a range of menu selections plus the simultaneous opportunity for residents to serve themselves in the renovated servery. Restaurant style table service is the norm in the elegant Asbury Place dining room. The Arbor Room, Arbor Acres’ fine dining facility, offers upscale meals with frequent specials, all served with grace and care. Dining venues in Strickland Place and Arborview are presently under renovation, but will be fully operational by mid-year 2016. In addition, Strickland Place will have its own café for casual gathering with friends and family over a nibble and perhaps a glass of wine.

In 2015, 394,000 meals were served, far more than anticipated, and a strong attestation to Rick’s and Daniel’s organizational and culinary skills. Additionally, on-campus catering, guest meals and special events generated $170,000 to the Arbor Acres bottom line. One may dine well on cabbage like that.

“One cannot think well, love well, and sleep well, if one has not dined well.”

2015 was a challenging year financially. Still Arbor Acres generated $283,000 increase in net assets which now total $45,354,961 (36.5% of the total balance sheet). The Financial Assistance Endowment Fund decreased slightly due to unrealized losses on investments. It now totals $13,719,172. Arbor Acres also maintained the municipal bond rating of BBB+ through Fitch Ratings, a reflection of continued financial strength.

The big story for 2015 was the renovation of Strickland Place, our skilled nursing facility. The project required a reduction of the number of rooms available for occupancy and a concurrent reduction in revenue. Turnover in other portions of Arbor Acres also resulted in higher than normal vacancy rates. The good news is that by year-end occupancy had stabilized campus-wide at a healthy 94.1%. Excellent control of expenses during this year in which revenue fell below expectations enabled Arbor Acres to achieve by year-end an operating gain of $1,096,000, a significant improvement over 2014 operating results.

Total revenue exceeded budget by a comfortable $2,146,000 which was attributable to the following: entrance fee revenue which exceeded budget by $694,475, and unusually high realized gains on investments. Additionally, capital campaign receipts for the year

totaled $918,019. This increased the total amount given or pledged to The Essential Promise Campaign by year-end to a remarkable $3,799,846.

Total cash operating expenses excluding depreciation and amortization were $214,379 under budget. Financial assistance dollars spent to cover residency costs of thirty-three financially needy residents totaled $1,358,026. This represents 5.1% of total resident revenue.

Arbor Acres’ outstanding debt as of December 31, 2015 totaled $46,202,854. This includes borrowing to cover $3,447,854 of construction costs for the Strickland Place renovation. Of the total debt, 73% carries a fixed interest rate. The average interest rate costs on all Arbor Acres’ debt equaled 3.1% as of December 31.

Realized investment earnings were $1,111,296 over budget, the result of liquidation of certain investments that occurred when the Finance Committee secured professional investment management for all of Arbor Acres invested assets. Unfortunately, unrealized losses in 2015 more than offset these gains leading to a net total loss on investments of $128,500, or a negative 0.4% return on investments for the year.

In 2015, Arborview, the area in Fitzgerald that provides comprehensive support for residents with dementia, experienced a renaissance. Under the direction of Hannah Jessup, fragmented methods of service delivery faded. Visit Arborview now and you will find a team of professionals who, collectively, learn and are guided in service delivery by the residents personal preferences. Within the field of continuing care, this approach is known as Resident-Centered Life. Regardless of what you call it, the residents feel held by loving arms.

Garden areas outside Arborview received a thorough pruning coupled with the addition of features designed to engage the residents. The fountain that once graced the front of Fitzgerald found a temporary home in the Arborview Garden, where it remains awaiting its post-renovation return to its point of origin. In the meantime,

residents have enjoyed the magical splashing sound of cascading water. A putting green was installed thanks to a generous donation from Sam and Mary Ceile Ogburn. A wheelchair bicycle, a gift of Bob and Ann King, brought new energy and opportunity to the lives of residents. Lastly, a red mailbox appeared and instantly became a focal point for residents who still watch for the daily mail.

The original eighteen rooms of Arborview, built in 1987, will soon receive the same transformation already underway in Strickland Place. Additionally, a new bathing center will be created so that residents of Arborview, like all other residents in Arbor Acres’ licensed care facilities, can enjoy greater comfort while bathing. The new Arborview SPA (Soothing Pleasures Alternative) will offer natural light, comforting beauty, therapeutic aromas, and soothing music …aaaah!
