Do you love music? Are you are a fan of the classics? Are you curious to hear an orchestra perform a musical piece that is over two centuries years old? We invite you to The Village Church in Dowling Park on March 6. The Valdosta Symphony Orchestra, along with a full choir and four outstanding soloists, will perform Mozart’s Requiem at 2:00 in the afternoon as part of Advent Christian Village’s Live! at Dowling Park Artist Series.
A crowd of Suwannee County residents gathered at the corner of Dowling Park Dr. and Marvin Jones Blvd. in Dowling Park Tuesday morning, Jan. 26, to break ground at the site of the Suwannee River Regional Library System's (SRRLS) newest addition: the Jo Kennon Dowling Park Public Library. The library, which was first proposed by Danny Hales over a decade ago, survived several obstacles to become reality and anticipation only made the event sweeter. In 2014, Suwannee County was awarded the financial support necessary to make the Dowling Park library a reality. Funding from the state is only part of what is necessary to fund the project and many in the county have stepped up to fill in the financial gap.

When designing or shopping for a new home, we should consider the livability and comfort the home will afford us. There are always specific features that we are attracted to, and a general flow of spaces that we feel will make our particular living style more comfortable. When a young bachelor shops for a home, he looks for different features than a couple with children. Their needs have changed and so they look for the features to accommodate a family. Designing a home or adapting a home for your senior years requires a similar rethinking of your current needs and what your future needs might be.
Following Suwannee-Hamilton Technical Center’s identity change to RiverOak Technical College (Live Oak, Florida) last year, administration added several new program opportunities. Early this year, the college renewed its partnership with Advent Christian Village (ACV) in order to offer a unique, five-week Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) class taught at Good Samaritan Center, ACV’s skilled nursing community. This isn’t the first class of this type to be taught at ACV and they are thrilled to be working with RiverOak to once again offer more medical education in western Suwannee County.
Advent Christian Village members Richard and Patricia Hanks’ relationship started in a courthouse. In fact, they still spend a lot of time in a Georgia courtroom, but they’re not in trouble; they’re bailiffs.
If you are a senior adult who is hospitalized following a fall or an illness, who do you turn to for help when it’s time to go home? Your family or friends? What if none are available? At Advent Christian Village (ACV) the answer is easy — you call your Service Coordinator. Or better yet, the hospital discharge coordinator calls the Service Coordinator with the details of the kind of care you will need after your discharge. From there, the Service Coordinator sets up any necessary services, like delivered meals, housekeeping, or home care. They even see to it that prescriptions are filled and that you have transportation to follow-up medical appointments and specialists. This is just one of the facets of the Service Coordinator’s role.
