Hats off to our Horticulture team once again! Hancock Village Apartments was one of 36 communities to gain national recognition from the Professional Landcare Network (PLANET).
What an amazing way to start Thanksgiving week.
We asked our employees and residents to step up and give big to our Pine Street Inn food drive and they answered with gusto! We were unable to tally all the cans and boxes but, rest assured there will be many folks that will benefit from your generosity. In fact, we were able to fill up the majority of a 14 foot rental truck with your donations!
Are you ready to wow and charm your guests with your Thanksgiving table in your CHR apartment? No? Neither are we.
It's ok! Here is a list of some quick and easy table ideas just in time for turkey day.
Around fifty CHR employees attended the Rental Housing Association's (RHA) Fall Conference in Boston last month. Patricia Scolly (pictured left) took home the Maintenance Supervisor of the Year for her incredible volume of work at CHR's Brighton, Brookline, and Cambridge apartments.
CHR’s charity for November is Globe Santa, an organization which delivers holiday gifts to local children in need throughout Greater Boston since 1956.
We are saddened by the passing of a friend to CHR and to the city of Boston, Thomas Menino. The above photo was taken in 2012 as the former mayor visited The Beethoven Elementary School to see CHR’s completion of a streetscape beautification project. Boston Shines, a program Menino founded, is a project that CHR strongly believes in and one that we will continue to do in his honor.
He will be missed.
CHR turned 45 last month and we marked the occasion with a sunset dinner and cruise on The Spirit of Boston. We all had such a fabulous time and The Spirit of Boston is a beautiful boat. The views of sunset over the city of Boston were spectacular. Great food, music, dancing and good friends…the party kept going after the boat docked. When you are having fun, time goes by quickly.
All CHR offices will be open on Monday, so we want you to take advantage of the fall season on our behalf! Here are three things happening this weekend in the Boston, MA and Providence, RI area:
CHR's charity for the month of October is the Special Olympics Massachusetts (SOMA). It provides year-round sports training, athletic competition and other health-related programming for athletes with intellectual disabilities throughout the state. At SOMA, athletes train and compete through local practices and competitions to qualify for sectional and statewide events.
As the temperatures start to drop and the day light grows shorter you will start to notice the colorful fall displays appearing on the properties. The fall season is like a changing of the guard. The lush summer landscapes slow down and start to conserve their energy for a long winter. The fall season and change in the landscapes can be one of the most inspiring and colorful times of the year as it is especially evident outside your CHR apartment window.
