Happy Retirement Christine!
Southbridge Rehabilitation & Health Care Center recently celebrated a big milestone for one of their employees. This last year has been a challenge for all and unfortunately many events we normally put on at our facility were cancelled. This past week we welcomed back friends and family and were able to have a big celebration to honor Christine McTigue on her retirement. The residents, staff and community came together to hold a surprise retirement party for Chris, and it was a tearful but joyful event! Christine McTigue has been a dedicated employee and served our residents as the Food Service Director for 46 years. Chris is well known for putting together the delicious community senior breakfast held at Southbridge RHCC twice a year for many years. She has helped put on many special functions for the residents such as luaus, wine and cheese nights, special holiday luncheons, monthly birthday celebrations, etc. Chris always participated in the activities with residents and families as much as she could in her busy day, including her amazing Halloween costumes and not to mention sharing her hidden talent and favorite activity, Karaoke! We wish her the best of luck on her retirement even though she will be greatly missed by all! Congratulations Chris on your next chapter in life!
