Demolition Begins at Chestnut Ridge

On Friday, October 21, depositors and supporters of Chestnut Ridge at Rodale gathered to celebrate the much-anticipated demolition beginning on the former Rodale property.

President and CEO of Phoebe Ministries, Scott Stevenson, addressed the crowd before leading everyone in a celebratory toast. “This is a toast to you, our depositors, and to your patience, and your faith in Phoebe and to the beginning of construction. And let’s pray for a short construction timeline. Cheers!”

Chief Financial Officer (CFO) of Phoebe, Bob Richards, also spoke to depositors and provided a timeline of events to come. The excitement was palpable, as the soon-to-be residents of the new luxury apartments realized the need to begin downsizing and planning their move.
