The Uxbridge Senior Center celebrates with their Summer Indoor Picnic.
I want to thank our friends from Lydia Taft House and Hannaford's for visiting today. Hannaford's new store Manager, Tony Giunta, long-time store employee Patty Ranslow and Linda Hewett sponsored a free ice cream social for everyone in attendance today. It was so nice! Hannaford's served over 40 ice cream sundae's, including special sugar free toppings and ice cream for individuals with dietary restrictions. We remain most grateful to Hannaford's for all the help and support they give to our Center and to our elderly citizens.
We were delighted to resume our relationship with Lydia Taft and to meet their new Activities Director, kristen Conley. Kristen helped to coordinate 10 individuals from Lydia Taft House/Rehab to attended our summer cook/in. Some of the individuals said they had not been out of Lydia Taft for over 6 months and that they felt "alive" and so very happy to join us
for lunch. We hope to keep the relationship going and to plan additional luncheon get togethers in the future.
Lastly I wanted to thank the Uxbridge Elderly Connection for our new gas grill. We would be lost if not for their continued support and generosity! Thanks to Cathy Thornton and Donna Oncay for all their continued help to make our events so special for our senior citizens!
