With an on-going renovation and a bevy of new annual fundraisers and activities, the staff and residents at the Pinnacle Nursing and Rehabilitation Center are firing on all cylinders moving into 2012.

Just before Christmas, Pinnacle staff made their official donation to the United Way with funds raised this summer while also participating in a food drive with Emery County Rehabilitation to help Carbon and Emery County Food Banks.

"All of us here at Pinnacle love our neighbors here in the Castle Valley and we want to do everything we can to not only make our residents more happy but to insure that they also can continue contributing to their community," explained administrator Al Shakespaere.

To facilitate this, Pinnacle Nursing hosted an inaugural golf tournament this summer aimed at assisting the United Way and their yearly Angel Tree venture.

"We were able to provide 13 teams with a great time while raising funds for a local charity," said the Pinnacle director.

According to Shakespaere, the event would not have been possible without the assistance Pinnacle received from Rocky Mountain Hospice and Homecare as well as Community Nursing Services, Nicholas and Company Food Distributors, Provo Rehabilitation and Nursing and HPSI Orem.

As for the food drive, Pinnacle Nursing got together with Emery County Care and Rehabilitation to see who could raise the most goods for their local food banks.

"Together we raised over 1,800 pounds of food during a time when many families need the services of the food bank," said Shakespeare.

According to Shakespaere, Diane Tadahara and Alec Stevenson of Emery County Nursing and Rehabilitation were instrumental in bringing this event to Emery County.

While Shakespaere wouldn't say much about the project completion date for Pinnacle's renovation, anyone who has seen the facility knows that things have changed.
