Celebrating Retirement and a Job Well Done!
Two of our executive directors are retiring - from the same company, on or around July 31, 2018. These ladies have both contributed to the success of our association, and we're going to miss them!

Peggy Cravens, Executive Director of Elmcroft in Florence, is retiring after a distinguished career in long-term care and assisted living. She is married, with two grown daughters and this retirement will enable Peggy and her husband to take many more trips on their motorcycle.

Kathy Franke, Executive Director of Elmcroft of Mt. Washington is retiring to help her mother, who lives in Bardstown, downsize from her home and move into a more suitable environment. Kathy plans to return to the workforce in a few months, but what that will look like remains to be seen. She can't stay away for too long though, because, as she says, "it is in my blood!"

We thank you, Peggy and Kathy, for your years of service, and we wish you the very best in your future endeavors!
