Garden Court Board Position

Culver Garden Court

I’ve written about Garden Court here numerous times. Easterday Construction Co., Inc. has a long relationship with them starting with the construction of Argos Garden Court in 1998. ¬†That was a new, stand-alone facility. In total we’ve built seven stand-alone facilities for them and completed remodeling work on four of their other facilities. (See projects here and here.) The last new facility they sponsored and we built was Culver Garden Court. Unfortunately the HUD program that they used as a funding vehicle was subsequently reduced. The HUD offices were moved out of Indiana to Chicago and Indiana became less of a priority for the remaining funds.

Garden Court, Inc. was organized in 1972 as a not-for-profit to provide housing and supportive services for the elderly of Plymouth and the surrounding communities. They presently own and manage twelve housing communities. Their twelve housing communities have a total of 333 apartment units. Their board of directors consists of volunteers from the community. They always try and find representatives from the communities that they serve.

It was through Garden Court that I met and became friends with Ron Liechty. Ron worked tirelessly for the organization. It was one of the many causes in which he believed and consequently dedicated his time and personal support. While technically Easterday Construction was employed by Garden Court, Inc., we always worked as partners to provide the best facility for the money allocated.

I attended a Garden Court, Inc. board meeting last week to discuss a potential future project. At that meeting I learned that they are short board members and are looking for volunteers. One position they would like to fill is a Culver Representative. It would be a conflict of interest for me to serve, but I told them I would put the word out in case someone is interested. They have a bi-monthly meeting in Plymouth.

Have included a link to a booklet they give out titled “Introduction to Garden Court, Inc.“. You can find a PDF here.
