Thanks from Housing commissioners

On behalf of all the Pemberton tenants and Jamestown seniors and disabled who attended the annual Housing Authority commissioner’s picnic on Saturday, July 17, a sincere thank you to the following people who helped make it a wonderful event filled with great food, music and most important, wonderful people:

Housing Authority commissioners, who prepared and served all of the food – Ernest Anthony Jr., Valerie Topp, Kathy Rushton, Carole Phillips and Deb Owens; Dennis Owens, who did all the grilling; Jan Burns of the Senior Center; Ellen Brownell for her three-bean salad; tenants Jim Anderson, Cindy Waterman and Pat Monahan, who helped set up and clean up; Ellie Chase and Michelle Phillips, who assisted; Bruce Long, who once again donated Del’s Lemonade; and David Manuel, who provided music.

Everyone who attended had a wonderful time enjoying each other’s company, eating, singing and being outdoors in the beautiful weather. We are extremely thankful to everyone who helped make this annual picnic possible.
Ron DuPonte
Executive director
