Maple Crest celebrates 20th anniversary

The Maple Crest “idea” was a confluence of dreams and ideas from many community members developed over several years coming together at just the right time.

On Sept. 16, 1999, Carol Diller, Tesla Diller, Harriett McKibben and Marie Augsburger were the first residents to move into Maple Crest Senior Living Village’s main building.
