(Dubois, Wyo.) – Warm Valley Lodge, Wyoming’s newest and most modern assisted living facility, has been receiving rave reviews and national attention since the first residents moved in eight weeks ago, and this Saturday during the facility’s Open House, the public will be able to see why.
The day of free activities begins at 10 a.m. and continues until 2 p.m., and includes not only staff-led tours of the 23-room lodge, but also an opportunity to visit with the residents, one of whom who has described Warm Valley Lodge as the Taj Mahal of Dubois. Visitors will see and youngsters can even sit in the special life-flight helicopters used by Riverton-based Classic Lifeguard; and an appearance by Wyoming Secretary of State Max Maxfield of Cheyenne is also included in the festivities. Riverton radio station KTAK, Wyoming’s Big Country 93.9, will broadcast live from Warm Valley Lodge beginning at 11 a.m., and offer games and prizes as well as on-sight interviews. Refreshments will be served throughout the day, and a free hotdog-and-chips lunch will be served from noon to 1 p.m.
“We are extremely proud of our facility and how Warm Valley Lodge has been so quickly accepted, not only by our residents but also by the town of Dubois, all of Fremont County, and the State of Wyoming,” noted WVL Director Ann Green, “and we’re offering this Open House not only to let visitors become more familiar with our programs, but also to say ‘thank you’ for all the support we have received.
“We have had inquiries from many other states and even one foreign country, which has surprised all of us here, because we’ve only been open such a short time. The staff is doing a wonderful job, and they’re looking forward to this Open House as much as I am.”
