HBI Students Beautify Dodge Park Rest Home & Day Club

HBI Student’s Scott Wormald, Dennis Welch, and Zachary Grasseschi braved balmy, rain and mist to install annual flowers at the Dodge Park Rest Home and Day Club in mid May. The team had a few apprehensions about the earth worms wiggling in the soil, but they figured out how to layout, fertilize and in-fantastic array of bright spring flowers. Malcom Silas, Justin Sanchez and Nick Alves, not pictured, also had a hand in beautifying the front entrance and walkways of

Dodge Park. In many ways – a historic photo, The Odd Fellows Home at multi storied brick building pictured as back drop behind Scott, Dennis and Zachary, is in the process of being demolished. In its place there will be two new phase developments for assisted living and Alzheimer patients developed by Micha Shalev, MHA and Ben Herlinger, Owner and the Dodge Park Team. With the completion of this development scheduled from 2014-2020, the Dodge Park Rest Home will have effectively tripled their services to Greater Worcester elderly. This will mean a lot more job opportuni- ties for the Health Occupational Trades, expanded Food Services capacity and maybe a position or two for an eager HBI Pre-Apprentice to assist Jeff Cantino, Facilities Manager at Dodge Park with a lot more facilities mainte- nance and beautification.
