    Moving History

    A s part of a multi-million dollar Thames Edge at Fairview project, KBE Construction of Farmington brought specialized

    equipment on campus to safely lift and relocate our

    historic Creamery Building. The Creamery Building

    was once home to cows that provided fresh dairy

    products to the men and women who

    called Fairview home.

    Students Helping Seniors

    F airview recently received a generous grant from AT&T that enabled Fairview to enhance a decade-long

    intergenerational program between the

    students at Ella T. Grasso Southeastern

    Technical High School and our residents.

    Students from Grasso Tech visit Fairview

    weekly to work with residents and help

    them utilize the newest technology such

    as iPads to send pictures and emails to

    family members. They are even learning to

    play various games on the devices. Special

    thanks to Senator Andy Maynard for

    joining us as we celebrated over ten years

    of success with this program. It received

    coverage in The Day and Mystic River Press, both

    articles can be found on Fairview’s website

    at www.fairviewct.org/News

    Creamery Move (continued from page 1) “While the planning took months, the lift and move happened in

    less than a few minutes,” shares Sandra Hawes, Sales Director at

    Thames Edge at Fairview. “Resources have been set aside to restore

    the building.”

    “We’ve relocated the creamery building to a great spot on the site,”

    added Terry Terranga, Project Manager for KBE Construction of

    Farmington, the construction firm and project managers.

    Design Caffeinated Thinking

    Reflections

    A nnually, Fairview has an event to recognize individuals who have provided invaluable assistance

    to Fairview through selfless gifts of

    time, financial assistance or other

    extraordinary contributions. This

    event is called the Fairview Medal

    Dinner and this spring, Fairview

    is proud to present two special

    individuals with the Fairview Medal: Charley

    “Hank” Henry Lucas and Mary Sepowitz, LPN. These two join a

    list of exceptional individuals who have dedicated themselves to

    Fairview: Edie Kalin, Billy Joe Foreman, Leah Genido, Vincent

    Barbieri, Dr. Edward McDermott, George Ververis, Jr., David

    Reindel, Richard Campbell, Pat Bowden Fialkosky, Jim Malloy,

    Senator Andy Maynard and David Brown.

    It is important also to recognize the tremendous employees that

    work hard every day to provide an excellent experience for the

    individuals we serve. As a part of our commitment to employee

    recognition, we have established a group called the ROCK

    (Recognizing Outstanding Care and Kindness) Committee. This

    committee develops and fundraises for programs which recognize

    Fairview’s employees. Examples of this are the ROCK Star

    nominations; these can be filled out by anyone who would like to

    recognize an employee that has gone above and beyond.

    Nomination forms are conveniently located at the front desk and

    the nurses stations. Since the beginning of the program in July of

    last year we have received over 200 ROCK Star nominations. I

    encourage you to submit a ROCK nomination if an employee has

    gone above and beyond your expectations!
