RTR would like to thank all that participated in the monitor Drive headed by South Shore Magazine’s Stan Blackmur, and John Turco from Rogers and Grey Insurance. Together Blackmur and Turco contacted local community members and collected over 70 LCD monitors for our programs. These monitors will be used for our IT department’s conversion form Windows XP to Windows 7. Monitors will not have to be purchased with the new computers needed for the project. Thank you for all that participated!
Everyone enjoys a special night out on the town. Life is no different for the Road to Responsibility individuals. The beautiful ladies from one of the Scituate residences recently enjoyed one of those nights! Amie, Shirley, Sheila and Johanna started off their evening with manicures, any color polish that you could dream of, sparkles, designs and more. The ladies enjoyed relaxing, socializing with friends and being pampered all while treating themselves to snacks and joyful music. Soon it was “beauty time”. If you had entered their Scituate home you would see an elaborate array of lipstick, blush, eye shadow, curling irons, bobby-pins and hairspray galore. But, most importantly entering the residence you would hear the joy, love and laughter. Gorgeous dresses, shimmering pearl necklaces, sparkling rings, and fancy hats but nothing more beautiful that the four women that wore these items.
They enjoyed dining out in the community and ordering some of their favorite dishes. The evening didn’t end with dinner, the ladies partied the night away, dancing and showing off their fantastic dance moves. The happiness in the room that evening cannot even be described. To cap off the night the ladies cheered to a wonderful evening with a glass of sparkling cider. As in the words of Amie, Shirley, Sheila and Johanna “Cheers to ladies night”.
A group of 75 individuals RTR serves enjoyed a night at Fenway Park for RTR night. Before the game RTR was honored during the first pitch ceremony and in the 6th inning the group was announced and shown on the center field screen. Everyone involved had an amazing time and didn’t let the fact the Sox lost ruin their spirits during the game. Thank you to all who made this possible.
