Boosting the signal

Donation provides new sound system

Thanks to an anonymous donor, we’re enjoying a new speaker system in our main dining room, where we host many of our major events and activities.

Many residents and visitors to Emporia Presbyterian Manor have noted lately that the existing sound system in our main dining room was not up to par.

On the stand-alone unit with just a microphone and a couple of speakers, it was difficult to hear people clearly, and the sound quality was poor. Claude Williamson, director of environmental services, said the new system is being permanently installed with overhead speakers and microphones. It is also being wired to allow paging.

The new sound system was first used at our resident Christmas party for independent and assisted living residents.

We’re excited to have it in place for this month’s annual Dialogue event with state legislators who represent the Emporia community (details at end).

“We have dreamed of upgrading our speaker system for some time, and with the help of a generous donor it has been made possible,” said Marketing Director Crystal Stock. “Many residents, staff and family members are very thankful to see this getting put into place, and we’re confident the new system will greatly enhance the events and activities we host for many years to come.”

We are grateful to the donor who made this improvement possible, and to everyone who supports the Presbyterian Manor mission.

Let's have a dialogue

Our annual Let’s Have a Dialogue event, presented by the Emporia Area Chamber of Commerce, will begin at 8:30 a.m. Saturday, March 10, in our main dining room. Beverages and breakfast will be provided.

This year we’ll hear from Kansas State Representatives Highland, Schreiber and Smith, and Kansas Senator Longbine about current political events. The Emporia community is invited to attend.
