We’re a ‘Baby Boomer’

bb365536fccfc84428663b1df9ec4432Baptist Village Retirement Communities is a “Baby Boomer.” The ministry was born in 1958. We will be 50 years old next year. It’s our anniversary!

We were born in Hugo out of the call of God in the lives of Will and Nora Baskett. They sacrificed. They gave 68 acres of land, led a fund-raising campaign among their friends and made an $18,000 personal loan. A nursing center was constructed.

Mrs. Baskett furnished quilts, tore up her feather bed to make pillows, brought eggs by the case and gave 150 hens. They invested their resources. They partnered with BVRC.

They were . . . really smart. Their investment in ministry paid off many times over. Fifty years later, BVRC is serving 2,000 people every day. There are eight campuses, two home health agencies and a medical equipment and supplies service. The mission has not changed.
