Many Thanks, Sheriff Lew Evangelidis:
Just a quick note of thanks for sending Correctional Officers Mike O’Connor and Bryan Almstrom to the Uxbridge Senior with pounds of yummy vegetables from the Sheriff Department’s gardens. We are so grateful to you for thinking of us!
Here’s how we paid your nutritional gift forward: We reserved some of the veggies to be cooked up and served in-house at our daily meal program. Then, we were able to offer a variety of vegetables to our participants; many of whom used to have a garden of their own.
The spaghetti squash sparked a lively discussion as many reminisced about their former vegetable gardens and exchanged favorite veggie recipes.
Lastly, we were able to share the remainder of the vegetables with our local food pantry. Your healthy gift made a positive difference throughout our community!
It is a pleasure to partner with the Worcester County Sheriff’s Department and we are most grateful to the members of your dedicated staff for taking time to deliver the vegetable to Uxbridge for all of us to enjoy.
With our sincere appreciation,
Marsha Petrillo, Director
Uxbridge Senior Center
