all the hard work paid off with positive inspections

Beach Street recently held a festive Hawaiian-style lunch with residents, staff, and our Maintenance Team to celebrate of all the hard work everyone has done for the program.

Under normal circumstances, Mainers would bundle up and hibernate for the winter, but not at Beach Street! This winter has been a busy time for all in the fray of multiple site inspections.

The program has seen changes from newly painted rooms, to updated bathroom fixtures, to new window treatments. Everyone has enthusiastically rolled up their sleeves to take on the challenges associated with these projects.

We have prepared for inspections from the Housing and Urban Development's Real Estate Assessment Center, the Department of Health and Human Services Division of Licensing and Certification, as well as the state fire Marshall's office, all with positive results. Hooray!

Pictured are also some of our Beach Street residents who stepped up by keeping their rooms in top shape for the viewings.

We especially wanted to thank them for enduring the many inconveniences that accompany the sometimes noisy repairs and required walk-throughs of the building.

A good time was had by all, and to top it off, we celebrated to the drum beats of Hawaiian music in the background with homemade coconut cream pie!

Even Hank got into the spirit. He worked like a dog!
