Community Raises Over One Thousand Dollars for Boothbay Region Fuel Assitance Fund!
The community helped to warm many hearts this past Valentine's Day, Thursday, February 14th. About 100 participants from around the Boothbay Region and from St. Andrews Village, New England's Premiere Retirement Community, helped to raise over $1000.00 for the region fuel assistance fund.
Guests signed up in advance for either an 11:30 AM or 12:30 PM seating. Cory, Alyssa, Shawna, Edith and Amy from the dining team developed and served a scrumptious menu. A choice of two soups and a variety of Amy's signature sandwiches were served. The homemade tomato bisque soup was, as usual, a big hit with the guests! Other members of the St. Andrews Village team pitched in to help set up, greet, serve or work on the cleanup team.
I always enjoy meeting our guests! The lower part of Emery Lane borders on our local middle and high schools and a number of teachers made time for lunch to support this event. Several members of the St. Andrew Hospital Thrift Store team visited as well! By the way, if you have not checked out the new location for the Thrift Store at the Boothbay Harbor mini-mall, please do so! There are bargains galore and they are now accepting and selling furniture as well! Bruce and other members of the Tindal and Callahan team www.tindalandcallahan.com stopped in and lended their support to the effort.
One of the benefits of living at St. Andrews Village is our continuum of services from independent living to skilled nursing and rehabilitation. The north end of the main inn at the village is devoted to health care services. Our assisted living residence is on the second floor and our Gregory Wing skilled nursing home is on the first floor. The beauty of the main inn is that all of our services and programs are accessible under one roof. Viv, the Activities Coordinator for the Gregory Wing, took advantage of this by coordinating a lunch out for several residents and their family members to help support the cause!
One of the best aspects of living in the Boothbay Region is that it offers endless opportunities for community involvement. The culture of community stewardship is a common thread that runs throughout the greater community and within the community of residents at St. Andrews Village. Thanks to all for helping to support the community fuel assistance fund!
