The Senior Center is up and running after the tragic fire that left a hole in what many of us remember as downtown Uxbridge. I want to take a moment to thank the wonderful staff and volunteers who, on Thursday, hussled to get everyone safely out of the building. Lynne McPherson, Peter Waeger, my husband Pete Petrillo, and Kate Marshall sprang into action to evacuate our beautiful center before it was overcome with smoke.
We would also like to extend our gratitude to our three dedicated Medical van and Medical car drivers who worked throughout the period when the Senior Center was officially closed. Omer Boucher, George Fitzpatrick, and Steve Swift worked regardless of this bad situation and did not miss a single scheduled appointment.
Director, Council on Aging
