Brewer announces retirement effective July 5

Glenwood Lakeview Administrator Bill Brewer has announced his intent to retire from the Good Samaritan Society, effective July 5, 2014.

His service to the Society began in 1980 when he joined the staff of Crosby (ND) Good Samaritan Center as a licensed social worker. In January 1987, he became manager of the Noonan (ND) Good Samaritan Center and remained at that post until 2001.

Brewer spent four months as an administrator in training at the Bottineau (ND) Good Samaritan Center prior to assuming the role as administrator of both the Parshall (ND) and New Town (ND) Good Samaritan Centers. He remained at those two facilities until accepting the dual position at Hoffman and Glenwood in December 2003.

Brewer and his wife, Anne, have between them devoted 60 years of service to The Evangelical Lutheran Good Samaritan Society.

During his professional career, Brewer has been highly involved with the North Dakota Long Term Care Association and the Care Providers of Minnesota, serving on the convention and events committees of both organizations.

Future plans for the Brewers include maintaining their home in Alexandria and spending time on Ottertail Lake with family. They hope to get to know more about the “hidden treasures” that abound in Minnesota.
