Press release:

On November 20th, the family of Margaret Morasco attended a dedication of Crossroads House new Nurses Station named in honor of Margaret.  Margaret was a resident at Crossroads House in the fall of 2015.  She was also a nurse who started her profession at the VA Hospital in Batavia during the need created by WWII.

During her time at Crossroads House, Margaret’s family expressed a desire to invest in a need that the house had at the time.  As fate would have it, the medication room at that time, which was basically a closet, could no longer efficiently meet the need.  The gift enabled Crossroads House to move the medication room into a larger setting now aptly known as “The Margaret Morasco Nurses Station”.

Bob Terol volunteered as project supervisor and arranged numerous donations, discounts, and labor cost savings to stretch the gift further.  The new medication room features increased security, private phone and intercom and a computer along with the added space and efficiency.  With the cost savings, Bob was able to remodel the old medication room into a laundry room.  The Morasco family gift funded both projects.

Crossroads House would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to the entire Morasco and Roblee families for their loving support of our mission.

Press release:

The taps at the Chestnut Hill Country Club will be taken over by the Hamburg Brewing Company from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 26th. A portion of the proceeds from the event will benefit the Crossroads House in Batavia. In addition to the various craft beers created by the Hamburg Brewing Company, there will be putting, long drive and closest-to-the-pin contests.

“We thought this was a great way to end our golf season and to thank our customers throughout the year for all of their support, plus we are partnering with a great brewery for a great cause,” said Michael Protos, owner of Chestnut Hill.

Among the craft beers that the Hamburg Brewing Company will serve on tap at the takeover event include:

  • IPA – The breweries' four IPA style varieties includes -- ahtanum, palisade, chinook and magnum. This British-American hybrid also plays host to four different types of malted barley creating a unique orange hue. Additional hops added throughout the brewing process contribute to the floral and piney aromas that mingle well with the distinct malty character.
  • Small Town -- British-American hybrid also plays host to four different types of malted barley creating a unique orange hue. Additional hops added throughout the brewing process contribute to the floral and piney aromas that mingle well with the distinct malty character.
  • Hoppenstance -- an American Double India Pale Ale featuring cascade, centennial, simcoe and magnum hops. Honey malt and North American pilsner malts round out this well-balanced brew to make it so approachable and full flavored.
  • Oktoberfest -- Nothing pairs better with the great fall season than a traditional German-style Marzen lager. With its roots stemming from traditional Bavarian culture, this Oktoberfest is brewed with tons of Vienna-style malts that bring about BIG malty flavor. That big malty flavor then fades away to a clean hop bitterness provided by the Perle hops for a full-flavored and balanced experience.

“The rolling hills of Genesee County and the Chestnut Hill Country Club is a perfect setting to enjoy these great beers,” said John Russo, Jr. the president of Hamburg Brewing Company. “We also are delighted to have the opportunity to partner with Chestnut Hill and their efforts to support Crossroads House.”

Crossroads House is a comfort care home located on Liberty Street in the City of Batavia. It is a home to provide care for those who have a terminal illness and is an alternative to a hospital or nursing home when care can no longer be provided in the patient’s home. Crossroads House serves residents in Genesee, Wyoming and surrounding counties at no cost. For more information about Crossroads House please visit http://crossroadshouse.com/.
