Greetings all, I hope you had a great May! Summer begins on June 21st and we will celebrate, fathers, grandfathers, brothers, uncles and whatever men have impacted our lives. Did you know that we have a used medical equipment closet sponsored by the Orange Rotary. There are wheelchairs, walkers, canes and more. Residents have donated these items to pass on to others who may need them. So if you are looking for gently used medical equipment contact Community Services at 203-891-4786 or Don Lewis from the Rotary at 203-795-3486. Happy Father’s Day and enjoy the warm weather! Stop by any time my door is always open.
