The ABCD North End/West End Neighborhood Service Center (NE/WE NSC) recently held its Valentine Party. Nearly 60 members of the community, almost all of them seniors from the neighborhoods, came to the center at 1 Michelangelo Street in the North End to enjoy salad, antipasto, roast beef, potatoes, peas, cake, and coffee, despite the latest snowstorm! The NE/WE NSC’s fantastic team of volunteers cooked the meal, as they do every week, and handled everything from menu planning, shopping, cooking, serving, and clean-up! They do it with such love and dedication and the NE/WE NSC cannot thank them enough for their ongoing support.
Special guests included State Representative Aaron Michlewitz and Councilor Sal LaMattina, who visited with Valentine greetings — Aaron with roses and Sal with a delicious cake! Rod Payva, Community Outreach Specialist, from United Health Care, was also in attendance.
