Dorch­ester groups join forces to feed area se­niors

Dorchester Star - - Regional -

— The Ro­tary Club of Cam­bridge, Cam­bridge-South Dorch­ester High School In­ter­act Club and the Dorch­ester County Tech­ni­cal School’s culi­nary, hor­ti­cul­ture and med­i­cal ser­vice de­part­ments joined forces in De­cem­ber to feed a Christ­mas din­ner to senior clients of the Pleas­ant Day Med­i­cal Adult Day Care Cen­ter in Cam­bridge.

The event was a joint ven­ture with one goal in mind: to help a group of Dorch­ester County senior cit­i­zens know some­one cares. Chef Chris­tine Zin­nel and her senior culi­nary class pre­pared food for more than 100 peo­ple. Her ju­nior class fol­lowed, help­ing with some of the cleanup.

When the guests ar­rived, the room was dec­o­rated with cen­ter­pieces pre­pared by Terry Nuwer and her hor­ti­cul­ture class. Med­i­cal ser­vice stu­dents fin­ished the dec­o­rat­ing and helped with the cleanup. They also were on hand to help with ac­tiv­i­ties fol­low­ing the meal.

Eight mem­bers of the Cam­bridge-South Dorch­ester High School In­ter­act Club, which is spon­sored by the Ro­tary Club of Cam­bridge, as­sisted the Ro­tar­i­ans with serv­ing the meal and help­ing clear away dishes. In­ter­act mem­bers who helped were Ben Corn­well, pres­i­dent; Ben Doyle; Emily Blood­sworth; Emily Bro­hawn; Leah Kro­tee; Con­ner McCroy; Car­rie Price; and DaShanna Matthews.
