On May 31, 2018 Whole Life Services, Inc. held an Open House, celebrating the opening of its new edition at 1565 E State St in Hermitage, along with the re-launching of the Studio C Consignment Shop. The evening featured a Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony by the Shenango Valley Chamber of Commerce, presented by Sherris Moreira (Chamber Director), various state and local government representatives, local business people, and affiliates of WLS.
Whole Life's very own Wanda Bigler was did the honors of cutting the ribbon to the new edition, constructed by Declan Construction and speeches were presented by several special guests, including Whole Life's CEO Cindy Vogan, representatives from Congress Woman Michelle Brooks' and Congressman Mike Kelly's offices. Hermitage City Commissioners Michael Muha and Bill McConnell, County Commissioner Scott Boyd, Hermitage Treasurer Bernie Harry, and LTI's Tracey Schliep were also on-hand to offer a few words of congratulations and support for Whole Life Services. The improvements have all been part of advancing employment opportunities and awareness for individuals with special needs, which WLS serves. Inviting and cultivating relationships with community members and local business owners paves the way for the agency (and its creative initiatives) to be known and considered by the community in advancing employment and incubating opportunities.
Each Guest was given a tour of the building, addition, renovated kitchen and Studio C, then encouraged to participate in a variety of activities, including painting an original canvas which was then put on display. Brian Flick of The Guardians Nest and TGN Designs pshowcased beautiful "Live-edge" table designs that were on display for sale or to take special orders.
