    The Newsletter of the Fairview Family

    Spring 2007

    A Word from the Administrator

    March madness has had an en- tirely different meaning for the residents, staff and families at Fairview. With construction fi- nally completed at the end of March, we are all breathing a collective sigh of relief. At the same time we are also most thankful for the hard work and patience of those who helped through this arduous process. Like most major construction projects we were inundated with a number of change orders that added an additional $400,000 to our projected costs. Fortunately for us, a “guardian angel” came to our rescue. The late Mariam Kriegler of Bridgeport, an active member of the Rebekah’s into her late nineties, and her sister Elizabeth, bequeathed approxi- mately $365,000 to Fairview in memory of their parents, Emil and Mali Kriegler. Mariam spe- cifically stipulated that these funds be used for building im- provements and renovations. Her generosity along with that of many other individuals has en- abled Fairview’s physical plant to be as beautiful as our spec- tacular view.

    Fairview held a special ceremony to recognize the military service of two of our residents. Joseph Hann and Marie Scott were awarded the Connecticut Wartime Service Medal by the Connecticut Department of Veterans Affairs for their military service during WWII. Mr. Hann served in the Navy as a fireman and Ms. Scott in the Air Force as a photogra- pher. This special medal was presented by HM1 Curtis Thayton, HM3 Kami Fluetsch, and HA Joseph Turner, all stationed at the Navy submarine base in Groton. This rec- ognition event was organized by Sue Thomson, Fairview Director of Social Services. Pictured with the award recipi- ents in the bistro are family members, representatives from the Subbase, and Sue Thomson (far right).
