4th Annual Community Book Sale

Fairmount is planning its 4th Annual Community Book Sale on Saturday, April 27, from 6:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon. The book sale will be held in the Farm Crest Community Room at 1100 Farm Crest Drive on the east side of the Fairmount campus, and the public is cordially invited to attend.

There will be a wide assortment of books from which to choose: children’s books; Christian fiction, non-fiction and devotional; general fiction; biographies; history; songbooks; cookbooks; gardening, hobbies, crafts and nature; health, self-help and family books; memoirs; and books of local, Amish and Mennonite interest. Music CDs, puzzles and several miscellaneous or collectible books will also be offered. All proceeds from the book sale will go to Fairmount’s Sharing Fund for the benefit of residents who, through no fault of their own, have outlived their resources.

Wheat Ridge Apartments Project Underway

The new Wheat Ridge Apartment project is underway! Paul Risk Construction began work July 24, launching the 4-story, 45-unit building in the space between the Wheat Ridge Personal Care building and the Home Messenger/Muddy Creek Farm Library (the site of Fairmount’s annual Benefit Auctions). To learn more and follow construction progress, please click here.  

The building, designed by RLPS, will offer 11 apartment floor plans, each with its own private patio or balcony.  Sizes will range from a 595-square-foot studio to a 1,422-square-foot, two-bedroom unit with two full bathrooms. Each apartment will have a patio or balcony, and common areas in the building will include a gathering room with a full kitchen, a dining room, library and wellness room. Storage areas will be available on the lower level.

Many of the apartments have already been reserved. However, you still have time to secure an apartment. Please contact Mitchell at 717.354.1810 or mitchellh@FairmountHomes.org to arrange a personal meeting and learn more about the new apartments.
