Welcoming new residents to the Acts family is always a special occasion. We embrace the opportunity to meet new people with incredible stories nearly every day. But it’s not very often we get to welcome newlyweds, especially in their 90s.

Vera Burlew and Peter Hosler tied the knot on November 25 in the presence of friends in family. The amazing couple will be joining another family very soon with their impending move to Lima Estates.

Their wedding was featured as a Sunday cover story in the Delaware County Daily Times. The Philadelphia Inquirer ran a story as well in January. Check out the links below to learn more about the bride and groom!
