This year at Lenbrook, we will be having our second annual Blue Christmas Service. You may be asking: “And what might a Blue Christmas Service be?” I am glad you asked. Stephen Covey once said: “Air is to the body what understanding is to the soul.” For us to be spiritually well, we must be understood, and to be understood, our feelings (and I do mean all of them) need a serious hearing.

On Sunday, September 15, Lenbrook, Atlanta’s premier Life Plan Community, hosted the Children’s Art Festival at Lenbrook. Lenbrook’s residents and associates, their children and grandchildren, as well as guests from nearby Canterbury Court and Renaissance of Atlanta, plus families in the adjacent Ridgedale Park neighborhood were all invited.
Casual, delicious, and charming are the best ways to describe The Brook -- Lenbrook’s newest dining venue. Formerly known as the Bistro, the completely redesigned venue is open for lunch from 11am – 2pm and for dinner from 5pm – 7:30pm. The informal menu features a variety of classic sandwiches, soups, salads, entrees, and sides -- some of which will change with the season and some will remain constant throughout the year.
As I begin my tenure as Chairman of the Board of Directors at Lenbrook, I'm actively thinking about how to ensure Lenbrook continues to serve its residents well over the next 50 years. 50 years ago this summer, man landed on the moon, using less technology than we now have in our smartphones.

When I moved to Lenbrook in 2013, I had been gardening all my life. I inherited my mother’s love for creating beauty and grew flowers and plants wherever I lived throughout Great Britain – Bristol, Scotland, and later the Cotswolds - and then I brought my passion to Atlanta, where my husband and I and our two sons moved in 1986, supposedly just for three years. I loved our house in Druid Hills with its generous 1.5-acre garden where I expanded my gardening skills to adapt to Georgia’s hot weather and red clay, and I also built a mountain garden at our home at Lake Burton.
I'm thrilled that Lenbrook has officially kicked off its partnership with Second Helpings Atlanta (SHA), an Atlanta-based nonprofit food rescue organization!
Since April 24th, we are donating surplus fresh, perishable food from Lenbrook’s five different dining venues on a weekly basis – food items that otherwise would have ended up in a landfill are now be used to reduce hunger right here in our community. Lenbrook donated 1,262 pounds of food in May, enough to provide 1,052 nutritious meals to those in need and1,577 pounds so far during 2019.
Every month, Lenbrook hosts Mentor Me Monday, open to our 250+ Associates, and we were delighted when Mrs. Fran Fowler, a resident at Lenbrook, spoke to our group.
