4th of July Parade
The Town of Enfield famously celebrates the 4th of July the weekend after the actual date. So this year, from July 8 – 10, the town gathered its citizens in celebration. The town parade took place on Saturday, July 9.
We were happy to give our Residents the opportunity to hold their own place in the parade! Our bus, our golf cart, and a staff member’s Jeep were all filled with Residents and decorated with American flags and the number “50”, to commemorate our 50 years in Enfield.
It was a joy for our Residents to connect with the local community in such a festive way. They proudly waved their flags as representatives of Saint Joseph’s Residence.
Our guest of honor was Resident Dottie Roberge, who at the age of 102, rode in the Jeep. She received an honorable mention and cheers and applause from the crowd lining the street, as the parade’s MC announced her presence. She was acknowledged for having served in the Navy’s WAVES as Chief Petty Officer from ’43 to ’46. We are so proud of Dottie and of all our Residents!
