The idea for this project was the brainchild of Lindsay Otis, our Senior Catering Sales Manager. She told me she enjoys "giving back" and she just thought it would be a nice thing to do.
Once the cards were made, Lindsay arranged for us to deliver them personally to each resident of the two homes. Here is the delivery to Brookhouse that took place on December 12:
|Alaina Ferriero and Lindsay Otis|
|Outside the beautiful mansion on Derby Street|
|Joan choosing her gingerbread man.|
|Alaina and Lindsay delivering cards and cookies to Helen.|
|Evie was really happy with her choice.|
|Peggy seemed pleased!|
|Lucy letting the others see her handmade Christmas Card featuring a beautiful angel.|
|Sue accepting her choice from our tray of handmade goodies.|

I hope you enjoy seeing more of what the Hawthorne Hotel does to support the Salem Community. We are so happy to be part of this most excellent small historic city, and enjoy taking part in so much of the fabric of life here.
We hope to see you soon.
