It’s officially spring. We can’t wait to see new blooms in our gardens soon!
All of us at Seventy-Five State Street also wish to express our appreciation to Jill Bock and Peter Monro. They have given many years of dedicated volunteer service in our community. Year after year, Peter devotes endless hours to designing and implementing plans for the gardens surrounding our buildings. He plants, transplants and builds garden structures throughout each growing season. His creative efforts have transformed our grounds!
Several years ago, Peter’s wife, Jill, stopped by to see the results of Peter’s gardening and lend a hand. While so doing, Jill got to know residents and staff and offered to share her artistic talents. Jill now regularly teaches an art class here, where she says it’s “a give and take of creative learning.” Jill also has worked diligently with the Activities team to frame and exhibit residents’ artwork. We have had several very successful receptions and sales.
Both Peter and Jill have said that seeing the happiness on residents’ faces is all the thanks they wish for. However, every now and then it’s important to acknowledge their tremendous efforts and express our deep gratitude for all they do. Peter and Jill, Seventy-Five State Street is a better place because of you!
