Old Colony Elderly Services Hosts "community Connections Across the Commonwealth"

Secretary Festa’s visit was part of his newly established “Community Connections Across the Commonwealth” initiative which is focused on obtaining feedback and gathering concerns from agencies in the elder services network. Secretary Festa toured OCES, held a question and answer session and spent a lot of time speaking with the staff and gathering information.

The event was attended by area Councils on Aging as well as staff and board members from two other ASAPs (HESSCO and South Shore Elder Services). Representatives Geraldine Creedon and Thomas Kennedy also attended the event and offered their

support for the new Secretary.

According to Diana L. DiGiorgi, Executive Director of OCES, “We strongly support Secretary Festa’s ‘Community Connections Across the Commonwealth’ initiative, as it enhances communication between elder service agencies and the Executive Office of Elder Affairs. Moving forward, it will help to ensure that we are all on the same page in our dedication to ensuring comprehensive, high quality services for elders.”

OCES serves the towns of Abington, Avon, Bridgewater, Brockton, Carver, Duxbury, East Bridgewater, Easton, Halifax, Hanover, Hanson, Kingston, Lakeville, Marshfield, Middleboro, Pembroke, Plymouth, Plympton, Rockland, Stoughton, Wareham, West Bridgewater and Whitman.
