BCL’s Executive Director, Thomas C. Riley says “Thank You” to the Seaport Inn and Marina
On behalf of Better Community Living, Inc. (BCL) and our Board of Directors, I would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank You” to Bob Contreras and his staff at the Seaport Inn and Marina located in Fairhaven, MA for their continued support and commitment to BCL and the individuals we serve.
Since 2009, Bob has generously donated the use of the Grand Ballroom, one of their function spaces, at the Seaport Inn and Marina and provided a delicious dinner for over 125 people for BCL’s Annual Holiday Dinner and Dance that is held each December. Bob and his staff are warm and welcoming making everyone feel as if they were invited into their homes for these Holiday Dinner Celebrations. This gift is priceless and a sign of the true spirit of Christmas giving.
Bob keeps the Spirit of Christmas alive throughout the year offering rooms for shelter when emergencies arise that effect individuals served by BCL. Whether it is a power loss or heat loss at one of our homes the staff at the Seaport Inn have warmly accommodated us usually with very short notice.
Better Community Living is dedicated to supporting and serving individuals with developmental disabilities in the Greater New Bedford area as they strive to develop relationships and greater independence in the community. Bob and his staff are dedicated to supporting BCL. Again, thank you Bob for the kindness, generosity and time and effort that you and your staff put into our Annual Holiday Dinner and Dance; it means the world to us!
