Board of Directors

"I believe Arbor Acres has a bright future. As Board Chair, it was an exciting challenge to be a part of shaping that future. We are fortunate to have not only a committed Board, but also our talented staff who believe in our mission of allowing residents to live life fully in a beautiful setting. Our gifts and hopes are many as we move forward as a vibrant community appreciating our heritage, while preparing for the future at Arbor Acres." ~Vicki Hunt, Former Board Chair
