Ridgecrest Village Apartments in West Roxbury, MA has been getting a facelift over the past year. In 2012, Ridgecrest added 48 brand new one bedrooms apartments, pool, and fitness center that Mayor Menino himself christened. (Read more about that here: Mayor Menino Visits CHR) This year, 12 more apartments capped off this $15 million dollar project complete with new parking and streetscape.
A number of CHR employees are strapping on their sneakers and hitting the sidewalk in a friendly competition for glory and bragging rights. Walktober is a 31-day program with one goal in mind: go take a walk! Employee's success is tracked by the number of minutes they walk per day. 30-44 minutes equals a red leaf, 45-59 minutes equals an orange leaf, and 60 plus minutes equals a gold leaf.
The Gloria Gemma Breast Cancer Resource Foundation in Pawtucket, RI is CHR's October charity of the month.
With an emphasis on "top-of-catch" seafood, and locally grown, organic produce, Newport RI's The Mooring Restaurant offers diners a beautifully crafted menu that provides a unique and magnificent culinary experience. You can start your feast at their expansive raw bar sampling fresh oysters, littlenecks, cherrystones, or lobster claws.
Not having time to get to the gym doesn't have to be an excuse when you can get a great full body workout right in your CHR apartment. It also doesn't have to be intimidating to start a good fitness routine. Steve, of Nerd Fitness, put together a great circuit to get your foot in the right direction.
Wondering how to brighten up your apartment patio or balcony now that fall is around the corner? The plants that looked so cheery last spring are withering away so freshen up your space with some container planted mums.
If you've been following us on Facebook, you've noticed that we dedicate our cover photo to a different charity each month. Our charity of the month program was designed to encourage our employees to think about our community at large and give back. This month's charity is Cradles to Crayons.
