In this season of giving and receiving we at the Guilford Housing Authority wish to acknowledge and thank those who have given to our residents this year-some for many years.
The Vineyard Church provides monthly home-cooked meals and friendship to Boston Terrace residents. Raised beds grace our three community gardens because of a grant from the Guilford Foundation and the Apple Pi Robotics setting them in place, making gardening easier for our seniors and handicapped residents. Wonderful singers from the Allegro School of Performing Arts sing door-to-door each December. Girl Scout Troop 62067 provides dinners, gardening help, and tree-trimming at Sachem Hollow.
Every Wednesday, volunteers from the Food Salvage Program at St. George bring breads and cakes. The Guilford Interfaith Ministries (GIM) Meals on Whee1s provides meals to those residents wishing them. Other GIM services bring friendly visitors and medical equipment from Charlie's Closet. Monthly blood pressures and consultations as well as yearly flu/pneumonia shots are provided at each site by the VNA. The Rutherford Center's Edwina Ransanathan offers many programs of interest to Guilford Court residents throughout the year. After a handicapped van was robbed of its tires, Peter of Palumbo's Automotive took care of this problem for a resident.
We thank these people and our Guilford community for these meaningful programs. We thank our Board of Commissioners Richard Evans, Neil Brockwehl, Gloria Nemczuk, and Pat Kral and acknowledge our past tenant commissioner Evelyn Law. Thanks go to the maintenance staff: Bob Thompson and Harry Piner. And thanks also go to residents, who are good neighbors and a pleasure to have with us.
