Employee Appreciation


On Friday, August 18th, for the ninth consecutive year, employees of the Hannah BG Shaw Home attended the Employee Appreciation Event.  Each staff member along with a guest could attend this event.  The party started outside and due to the heavy rain we moved inside but this didn’t put a damper on the festivities.  Everyone assisted in moving the party into our Community Room where the Dietary Department provided an outstanding menu serving up:  buffalo chicken egg rolls, bruschetta & cheesy garlic bread, calzones, herb stuffed tomatoes, Caesar pasta salad, shrimp with avocado & cucumber bites and much more.  There were also cocktails and fine desserts for everyone’s enjoyment. 

Dave Valero delivered a light and lively culmination of 70’s to current music repertoire.  We had many free raffle prizes including a Patriot’s Themed Basket, Wine & Cheese Basket, Beer Basket, Thirty One Bag, scratch tickets and numerous gift certificates. 

The main focus was to recognize and award the following employees for their years of service:
30 years – Lisa Perry, Director of Dining Services
15 years – Bob Salomaa, Director of Property Management
                  and Brenda Arruda, Clinical Supervisor
10 years – Janelle Bradley, Cook Supervisor
5 years -   Jennifer Boyce, Director of Activities; Cristina Heap, RC CNA;
                Courtney Wilder, per diem CNA, and Ruth Betts, Dietary Assistant. 

It was a wonderful evening and fun was had by all.
