This 52-acre Coweta County complex was built in 1998 and features 87 independent living apartments, 5 duplex cottages, 45 personal care apartments and 23 skilled nursing beds. It is a Continuing Care Retirement Community, designed to help residents age in place and to address their comfort and health issues as they grow older. Philanthropic funds would provide for the improvement of the picnic pavilion area, including a fishing deck at the existing lake. Interiors would be renovated to enhance the independent living dining room experience and wellness program space.
Wesley Woods of Newnan has a secret marketing weapon that James Bond - Agent 007- would love to have. It is the Wedgewood Boutique, full of high-end gift items, designer jackets, handbags, scarves and jewelry all at reasonable prices. The silver bullet in this weapon is Mrs. Frances Goodson, one of our original residents who had the vision for the Wedgewood Boutique. She, along with Genet Barron, Margaret Cox, and Margaret Jones have made many trips to the Atlanta Merchandise Mart building relationships with Mart vendors, wooing the vendors with Miss Frances’s delicious rum cake, brownies and pound cakes. Mrs. Goodson is the heartbeat of building relationships in our home community, in the Wesley Woods Community and in our surrounding communities. Because all proceeds from the Boutique are returned to Wesley Woods, the Boutique is a resource for many of the extras at Wesley Woods of Newnan, “things” not afforded in a non-profit budget. Miss Frances generosity also extends to the community at large. A special sale by the Boutique volunteers raised $5,000 for the infant grandson of our Maintenance Supervisor who was undergoing cancer treatments. In addition, the Boutique provides an opportunity for volunteerism; it is operated exclusively by volunteers from Wesley Woods and from the Newnan/Coweta Community. The great news is that the silver bullet shows no sign of slowing down!.
