CIRCLING THE SQUARE: ’Tis the season for traditions
Although I was initially concerned about the weather a week ago Tuesday, it actually turned out to be better than anticipated. But it did mean the Hospice Tree of Lights ceremony and reception had fewer attendees.
We know many folks called the Care Dimensions office to see if the event were still on, but I’m afraid the forecast discouraged others. I do have to tell you that those of us who were there once again appreciated the effort that goes into putting on this special evening.
There were greetings from Pat Sullivan, Mass. president of People’s United Bank. Care Dimensions CEO Pat Ahern spoke and the Rev. Steven Mullin, gave the invocation.
A big thank you goes to Beverly High School musicians.
As usual, Henry’s of North Beverly, owned by the Jim Crosby family of Danvers, provided the refreshments. It gave me the opportunity to say hello to the lovely Deedie Beidler, who does such a great job.
It’s always sad to note some new faces, those individuals who recently lost a loved one like Jean Bouras whose husband, the late police chief, passed away a few months ago.
