Dr. John DeRuyter’s Retirement Party

Sunday, July 9th 3:00 pm at Ken Kunkle Community Center

After 17 years of working at Hope Counseling Center and 10 years of serving as the Executive Director, Dr. John DeRuyter is retiring. He and his lovely wife, Artha, will be setting off on a new adventure of sailing and spending more time with their family, and we want to give him the send-off that his years of service truly deserve.


There is an opportunity for you to wish John and Artha the best of luck in video format for those who cannot attend or wish to bid farewell via video as well as in person. Simply record a message below up to 30 seconds in length, and we will put them all together into one goodbye film to be played at the party.

John has made a huge impact on our community through his work and dedication at Hope Counseling Center, and we hope that you will join us to say good bye, good luck, and thank you for all his years of service.
