STEVENSVILLE — The senior residential community of Terrapin Grove celebrated the facility's 20th anniversary on May 17. Arranged by Bonnie Walter, and her very supportive committee, a number of former and current county leaders were invited to speak briefly at the event.

After being led in prayer by Kent Island United Methodist Church Pastor Bobby Timms, Kent Island Lion's Club member John Lawrence, shared details of how the Kent Island Lion's Club was initially involved in donating the property for both the Percy Thomas Senior Center to be built, followed by Terrapin Grove. Lawrence stated, "The property at that time, more than 20-years ago, had been valued at more than $400,000. The Lion's Club donated the property to the county with the agreement that Terrapin Grove would be built there within a year. Details were worked out with the state and county to move forward with the project."
