A Dawn Redwood tree commemorates Patrick McKee’s service to the community
On Thursday, Nov. 4, residents, staff and board of Wake Robin joined together to honor former CEO Patrick McKee.
McKee, of Charlotte, served as the organization’s head from 2014 until 2020. A Dawn Redwood tree, planted on the property’s lower meadow, will act as a longstanding thank you for his work.
Current CEO Martha Maksym said from inside the community’s newly renovated Maple Leaf Café, “Like all the CEOs who have worked for Wake Robin, you were a strategically unique choice — an example of Wake Robin’s hallmark of actively seeking great leaders, with varied and interesting backgrounds. Consistent with this philosophy, your leadership was the right style at the right time.”
She continued, “Your legacy is strong and revered at Wake Robin. On behalf of the community, our sincere thanks.”
Wake Robin is a non-profit Life Plan Community offering the full continuum of living options for senior citizens.
