Who would have thought the name of a fruit -- "apple" -- would become the name for the world's most valuable company? Apple co-founder Steve Jobs said he chose that name because he thought it sounded "fun, spirited and not intimidating." Ultimately, that name set the tone for Apple's culture as a creator of easy-to-use, innovative products. It got me to thinking about how we select the names for our programs and services at Lenbrook.
Let’s face it. I’m an “artistic type” through and through; I love the arts. Fortunately, I’m in good company. So many of our Lenbrook residents share a passion for the arts, frequenting the theater, symphony and museum at The Woodruff Arts Center. I’m very excited that we will celebrate art and life together in a very special way at The Woodruff coming up on Sept. 10.
A number of my fellow residents have asked me if I’m looking forward to completing my tenure as Lenbrook's Resident Association president at the end of June. Frankly, I have mixed emotions.
There’s no doubt that this position is demanding and time consuming. Lenbrook has 500 residents and a very busy campus on 6.5 acres. I am certainly looking forward to having a lot more time to spend with myself and my wife, Lea.
We're located in the vibrant Buckhead district of Atlanta, where arts, culture, and world class dining are practically in our backyard. It's kind of tough to compete with all these services and venues. But we do. Here's a look at what goes into our secret sauce hospitality – The Lenbrook Way.

A truly wonderful couple in our community recently made the difficult decision to relocate to California to be closer to family. They were part of our family for six years. We will miss them immensely. Before moving, the husband penned a heartfelt letter to me describing why they loved Lenbrook so much. With his permission, I'd like to share part of it with you.
