Bridgewell does the Duck Boats – Quack!

Published: July 26, 2022


Three of Bridgewell’s Independent Living programs went to the Duck Boats in Boston for a fun outing. Everyone was full of smiles and it was a first for most. A few of our residents became the captain and drove the boat! They couldn’t stop talking about how fun it was even in the heat.
