BankGloucester supports The Hive
BankGloucester has presented a check for $1,000 The Hive.
The Hive provides teenagers and adults with a creative outlet and opportunities to build self-confidence, as well as a place to learn job skills that will enable young people to become employable members of today’s growing creative economy.
The Hive has 4,000 square feet of studio space on Pleasant Street, and is part of Cape Ann Art Haven, a nonprofit in downtown Gloucester founded in 2008 with the mission of providing a place for the community to have exposure to the arts.
The original Art Haven, located on Main Street, continues to offer classes for children.
The Hive features a computer lab, a pottery studio, classroom space, artist studios for rent, multi-use space, a function room/community space, a cinema, and an art material thrift store (in progress).
Desmond, Phillips retire from SeniorCare
Kate Desmond, a veteran nurse and Rockport resident, has retired after 15 years of service to SeniorCare. She plans to travel and spend more time with her family and friends.
Desmond joined SeniorCare as a staff nurse and was promoted to nurse manager six years ago. During her tenure at the agency, her department grew from two staff nurses, to having a nurse assigned to each program. At the time of her retirement, she supervised eight nurses and an administrative assistant. Her department acted as the approval agents for the Massachusetts Enhanced Community Options Program, Waivered Services under MassHealth, and the Personal Care Programs.
Agency staff members and managers prepared a going away reception in Desmond’s honor, and there were many expressions of gratitude for her service and advocacy for the welfare of SeniorCare’s consumers.
SeniorCare Inc. also recently announced the retirement of Elizabeth Phillips, of Gloucester, one of its longtime care managers, after more than two decades of service.
