The 2009 traveling Eden Celebration made its way to St. John’s Home in Rochester, NY on Wednesday. Over 100 participants got an in-depth look at culture change with Bill and Jude Thomas, Eden Executive Director Carol Ende and Eden board members Sarah Rowan, Deborah Dunham and Mark Golden.
Here are some photos

A very successful day that re-ignited the spark to change aging around upstate New York and beyond.
