LOVE CAPE ANN SPRING!

Love that spring has come to Cape Ann even if the tulips on Stacey Boulevard are a little wet. Thanks to all the Volunteers at Generous Gardeners who spent hours hours planting tulips and daffodils in the fall. Cape Ann is ablaze in color; red, orange, pink, yellow, purple and white. While cleaning off the dirt, salt and grim from the toll the winter has taken on your car, how about adding a beautiful Cape Ann License Plate and showing home much you love this fabulous Cape Ann Community. Order today @Lovecapeann.com.

ON SATURDAY MAY 18Th from 9-12 ON STACEY BOULEVARD BY THE TENNIS COURT GENEROUS GARDENERS WILL HOLD THEIR ANNUAL PLANT SALE. This year they will be selling a lot of different lillies that they have divided from the ones you love on the Boulevard. They have a binder of the choices.

SENIOR CARE, INC CELEBRATES CENTENARIANS!!

Yesterday, Good Friday, Senior Care’s Executive Director Scott Trenti, HDM Assessor Lauren Gailitis and I were happy to celebrate 100 years of a great life with Randall Lane in Essex. His son Tim told us that he actually turn 100 in February and there was a big party with over 100 attending.

Senior Care’s tradition is to celebrate all our Meals on Wheels clients when they turn 100 with a visit by Scott, a gift and flowers. As the Site Manager for Manchester, Essex, Magnolia and West Gloucester it was my honor to come along and deliver his meal. Meals on Wheels is so much more than just a Meal, it a smiling face, a laugh, a blessing that there are people that volunteer to make a seniors day so much better!

Senior Care wishes our clients and volunteers have a very Happy Easter!
