Successful First Responders Barbecue - Featured on 22NEWS

On May 30, 2018 The Wellington at Springfield held our semi-annual First Responders Appreciation Barbecue.

We were able to serve dozens of emergency, fire and police personnel.

Our event was featured on 22NEWS here

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) - A Springfield retirement community provided lunch for police, firefighters and ambulance service EMTs.

This is the second year that Wellington of Springfield has honored first responders with a barbecue.

It's Wellington's way of thanking the men and women who have to arrive at a moment's notice to help a resident with a medical emergency.

"They're typically here on the spot taking care of our residents and preempting what's going to happen in the emergency room," Wellington's Executive Director Liz Skerry-Hastings explained. "And they certainly are life savers in a lot of instances."

Because they're on such a tight schedule, they had just enough time for a quick lunch and to thank the senior community for being appreciated.
