Many saw an usual site last week looming over the Doolittle Home. We are so happy to share we have started the modernization of our Elevator, which was originally installed in 1960. Atlantic Elevator utilized a crane to remove the motor and delivered the new motor to serve in its new home, for many years to come!. This is a very large undertaking for our small Home and glad to share the project has begun. This renovation will significantly aid our Resident population in ambulating throughout the Home!
Pastor Tom Boisclair and several other congregational members from the Grace Chapel Church in Foxboro volunteered their services in organizing items stored over the many years of collection.

Mary, Doolittle’s Resident Coordinator, had some fun visitors to the Doolittle Home’s Booth at the 5th Senior Spectacular in North Attleboro last week. Representative Betty Poirier of the 14th Bristol District sponsored the event and invited us to be a part of the day which had approximately 800-1000 visitors learning about local services for seniors.
