Salter HealthCare Recognizes 17 Employees for Longtime Service at Special Ceremony


Among Those Awarded Was Burlington Resident & Nurse, Judy Enos, Who Was Recognized for Her 

40-year Commitment to Serving Salter Patients

Salter HealthCare (, one of Massachusetts’s most trusted leaders in rehabilitation and skilled nursing care, today announced the recipients of their employee recognition awards for tenure. Seventeen team members who have been with the company for 5 years or more were recognized at a special ceremony held on March 7, 2017 at Winchester Rehabilitation & Nursing Center.

Among those record nized were Danie Jeudy of Malden, C.N.A. for 15 years of service and Bonnie Burke of Malden, Activities, for her 10 years of service.

The star of the day was Certified Nurse Aide (C.N.A.), Judy Enos, who has been with Salter HealthCare for 44 years. Massachusetts Senator Jason Lewis presented Enos with a special citation from the Massachusetts Senate and from Governor Charlie Baker. “It’s not every day that I get to recognize someone who has worked for a company for over 40 years and that says a lot about the Salter organization,” said Lewis. Fellow staff members applauded Enos for setting the tone, attitude and work ethic for everyone around her before presenting her individually with a rose to the song, Simply the Best.

“We are proud to have such a tenured staff and that’s a big part of what sets us apart,” said Bob Driscoll, Chief Executive Officer of Salter HealthCare. “A key part of this is the team-oriented, family environment the entire staff fosters. We’re a heart-first organization, and our employees support each other and are committed to improving the quality of life for our patients.”

Ribbon-cutting celebrates Forestdale Park improvements


An official ribbon-cutting ceremony took place to commemorate the completion of upgrades to Forestdale Park, including improvements to bring the park into compliance with the Americans with Disabilities (ADA) Act, in particular ADA-compliant dugout shelters. Mayor Gary Christenson, Councillor-at-Large David D’Arcangelo, Department of Public Works Director Bob Knox and Malden Redevelopment Authority’s Director of Community Development, Nick Pernice, along with residents, players and parents, celebrated the overhaul to the baseball park.

The City spent $135,000 in federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding for the renovations. The grant funded the removal of concrete pavement, old benches and old chain-link fencing and the installation of ADA-accessible concrete walkways, curbing, two dugout shelters with players’ benches, chain-link fencing and lawn-seeding adjacent to the existing ball field. The new dugout shelters will accommodate space for players in wheelchairs so they will be protected from the elements alongside their teammates.

This field has been the home field for the D12 Challenger League for the past 11 years as well as for Forestdale School and surrounding neighborhoods. The Challenger Division was established in 1989 as a separate division of Little League to enable boys and girls with physical and mental challenges, ages four to 18, or up to age 22 if still enrolled in high school, to enjoy the game of baseball along with the millions of other children who participate in this sport worldwide. Today, more than 30,000 children participate in more than 900 Challenger Divisions. Teams are set up according to abilities, rather than age and can include as many as 15-20 players. In a Challenger game, each player gets a chance to bat. The Challenger players wear the same uniforms, shoulder patches and safety equipment as other Little League players.


Donate books for local children


Malden Reads is assisting the Malden Kiwanis Club in collecting new and gently used books for local young people. You can drop off books for young people of all ages (0-18) at MATV, Malden’s Media Center, at 145 Pleasant St. or at any of the remaining Malden Reads events.

The Malden Kiwanis will be hosting an event called “Bubbles and Books” with the support of Malden Reads, on Saturday, June 3 from 2:30–5:30 p.m. at Miller Park (Harvard Street) in Malden. Young people of all ages, and their families, are invited to experience the magic of James Dichter’s giant bubbles, face-painting, a storyteller, a puppeteer and slush. All young people will receive a book to take home, and remaining books will be distributed throughout the community.

MATV is open Monday–Thursday, 10 a.m.–9 p.m.; Friday, 10 a.m.–6 p.m. and Saturday, 10 a.m.–2 p.m. There is a brightly decorated box in the lobby for dropping off book donations. You can also drop off book donations at the Malden Chamber of Commerce (2 Maplewood St.) and El Potro Mexican Restaurant (156 Highland Ave.) For more information about the event, contact Robin Jorgensen at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
