As many as 90 residents of Congregational Retirement Homes in Melrose recently attended the property’s annual Resident Appreciation Luncheon, hosted by the Congregational Retirement Homes Board of Directors. A residential community for seniors consisting of 318-units and three buildings, Congregational Retirement Homes is located on West Foster Street in Melrose and managed by full-service real estate firm, Peabody Properties, Inc.

Each summer, the Congregational Retirement Homes Board of Directors hosts a Resident Appreciation Luncheon, which they not only help plan but participate in as well. In addition to the annual luncheon, the nine-member, volunteer-based Board of Directors plans and coordinates events, activities and programs year round – with support from the Peabody Properties management team – to ensure that residents have the most positive resident experience possible.

According to Board of Directors President, David Henry, the annual Resident Appreciation Luncheon is a tradition that the residents and Board members alike look forward to each summer.

“It’s a wonderful celebration of unity, with the Board, the CRH staff and, most importantly, our beloved residents all coming together to help plan and participate in the luncheon,” said Henry. “The Resident Appreciation Luncheon is our way of saying ‘thank you’ to each and every one of our residents and we are so pleased to continue this special tradition again this year.”
