John Honn and Donna Gire were named this year’s Homecoming King and Queen during our coronation ceremony last month. Interestingly enough, we found out that Donna was the former Charleston High School Homecoming Queen in 1950. Congratulations to the two wonderful people who were voted to serve by their fellow residents at Heritage Woods!

A big thanks to Eastern Illinois University mascot Billy the Panther, #62 EIU offensive lineman Travis Buckwalter, and the EIU Athletics Department for joining the residents and staff at our homecoming celebration!

The residents and staff of Heritage Woods of Charleston are also excited to announce that we will be hosting Heritage Woods Senior Night during the EIU men’s basketball game on Wednesday, Nov. 28. We are the official sponsor of the game and will have a booth at the event. The residents will also be performing a special halftime dance with the Pink Panther Dance Team!
