— “We have been doing our best to reassure the resident’s that their level of care will stay the same no matter what happens,” Beeman said.

The situation has been very depressing at the home as the fate of Horace Nye is debated by the county, Beeman said.

Beeman added she hopes for a large turnout and good weather on June 2. She said the event could be the last opportunity for area residents to show their support for Horace Nye before the board reaches a decision on the home.

The Horace Nye Nursing Home sub-committee members will present to the Horace Nye Task Force May 29 their findings at the nursing homes owned by prospective buyers. The committee is expected to give their recommendation to the board of supervisors following their presentation.

Scozzafava said he hopes others come and voice their opinion before the home is lost for county residents.

“If it goes private, people will find out in a hurry what a tremendous asset it was to our community,” Scozzafava said.
