This weekend Benetwood held an open house for its anniversary and also celebrated the major renovations it has been able to accomplish this past year (new kitchen appliances, new flooring in kitchens and bathrooms for all apartments and replacement of all old wallpaper with fresh coats of paint in apartments and hallways.)
This brainchild of Sister Mary Philip Kiehlmeier is going strong, always has a waiting list, and offers a truly family/community experience for the people living there. We are proud of Benetwood's heritage and especially of the sisters whose work in those early years brought it to be the outstanding "home" it is today.

|The large general community rooms look out into the gardens that surround Benetwood.|
|A few years ago HUD approved the addition of a small computer "lab." It is very well used.|
|To celebrate the 35th anniversary, the residents purchased this unique clock for the community/gathering rooms where residents spend evenings, holidays and many special times enjoying their Benetwood "family."|
