Dear Residents and Families,

With June and the start of summer upon us, it seems timely to discuss some exciting happenings at JGS.

On June 26, we will host the Frankel-Kinsler Classic Day of Tournaments fundraiser at Twin Hills Country Club in Longmeadow. The event brings the community together for a day of fun, food, and friendship in support of the care of our community’s elders. Last year over $115,000 was raised through sponsorships, donations, and player registrations. It is an important day for our organization and I hope you can join us.

I would like to mention that we are looking into some plumbing and sewage work that will take place in the coming months in our New York household. We are currently in the process of identifying what exactly the job will entail. I’m sure some of you have noticed some rather unpleasant markings on the floor. These markings were necessary to identify piping and electrical conduit throughout the unit. As more details and plans for the project unfold, I will be sure to keep the residents and families of New York in the loop. Additionally, please know that the carpeting will be replaced when the markings are no longer needed. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to me directly.

In closing, I’m pleased to announce that JGS Campus kicked off its summer BBQs for residents. To date, BBQs have been held at Ruth’s House on May 25 and the A1 and NY households on June 6. In honor of Memorial Day, JNH hosted a meaningful Veterans BBQ for our residents and our guests from the Veteran’s Circle in the Town of Longmeadow. This was a very special day enjoyed by all. For me, it was truly a privilege to be part of it. Our next event will take place on July 14 for our C1 and C2 households. Family members who would like to join their loved ones at the BBQ are welcome to attend!
