As 2021 hurtles to a close, we are reminded of the hope and optimism that accompanied its arrival a year ago...and though 2021 didn't quite meet our expectations, we have much to be grateful for at Noble Horizons.
First and foremost is YOU. Thank you for all you have done to support Noble Horizons; we are grateful for your generous gifts, your positive encouragement, your engagement in our programs, your hours of volunteering, and your cherished friendship. You have fortified us with the resources needed not only to keep Noble residents Covid-free but to launch our 50th year with the same vision and excitement that marked its founding in 1972.
We wish you health and happiness in 2022 with the heartfelt hope that we will be gathering in person in the year ahead! Happy New Year!
