Greater Springfield Senior Services Celebrates 40th Anniversary

(SPRINGFIELD, Mass.) (WGGB)–A well-known Springfield social service agency is celebrating an important milestone this year.

Greater Springfield Senior Services is marking 40 years of service to the community.

They held a luncheon Friday at Springfield’s downtown Marriott Hotel to celebrate the occasion.

A number of staff and volunteers were on hand to receive the thanks from the organization for all the work they do on behalf of our elders.

Whether it’s providing personal care, day care, or meals on wheels, Greater Springfield Senior Services focuses on improving the quality of life for seniors says Executive Director Elaine Massery,”The goal is to keep people at home as safely as possible for as long as possible , most people like to remain independent and stay in their home if they can,” says Massery.

Our own Ray Hershel was part of that celebration as well, serving as master of ceremonies for the 40th anniversary luncheon.
