From Program Director Jamie Hersey, pictured above with Rita:

On May 11, Rita, who was featured in our last Gala video and lives in a Bridgewell residence, turned 90!

An intimate group of her close friends and Bridgewell family surprised her with a party at the Roma restaurant in Bradford. The attendance of Rita’s best friend since the first grade, Gracie, who is also turning 90 this year, was the icing on the cake for Rita.

The room was filled with decorations and photographs celebrating Rita’s life and memories. The theme of the event, “90 Years Loved,” fit perfectly because to know Rita is to love her. Rita has an infectious enthusiasm for life, a sharp wit, and despite her challenges, is filled with gratitude each and every day. It was a wonderful night and an honor for her guests to be able to celebrate the milestone of such an amazing woman.

Cheers to many more years for Rita!
