Seniors at the ABCD North End/West End Neighborhood Service Center (NE/WE NSC) enjoyed a fun winter’s day at the famous Wright’s Farm Restaurant and Gift Shop in Harrisville, Rhode Island on February 4th. Nearly five dozen seniors and students from their English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) program attended, accompanied by NE/WE NSC staff and volunteers. It was a pleasant drive to the restaurant and before everyone knew it, they had arrived for lunch. The meal included hearty portions of baked chicken, pasta, rolls, French fries, and salad. Several seniors commented that it is difficult to get out during the winter months due to the snow and cold and how rejuvenated they felt. Many of the ESOL students that participated are newcomers to Boston and had not yet explored bordering states. The NE/WE NSC is hard at work brainstorming future trips, which may include Cape Cod and farmers’ markets.
The trip would not have been possible without the generous support of Representative Aaron Michlewitz and City Councilor La Mattina, who sponsored the bus service provided by AYankee Line, Inc. The NE/WE NSC thanks you for caring so much about the constituents you serve and enabling them to have a day out.
