SHERIFF TOMPKINS ATTENDS 2ND ANNUAL CENTRAL BOSTON ELDER SERVICES “SUMMER SWING” EVENT

Suffolk County Sheriff Steven W. Tompkins shares a light moment with attendees of the Central Boston Elder Services Summer Swing event.


Suffolk County Sheriff Steven W. Tompkins recently attended the Second Annual Summer Swing celebration hosted by Central Boston Elder Services.

The celebration brought over 500 elders, caregivers, staff, volunteers and civic leaders together at the John A. Shelburne Community Center in Roxbury. Among the elected officials present were Boston City Councilors Ayanna Pressley, Tito Jackson and Rob Consalvo, as well as Suffolk County District Attorney Dan Conley and outgoing Boston School Superintendent Carol Johnson. The keynote speaker was Thomas M. Menino, Boston’s longest serving Mayor.

This year’s celebration – which bore a “Cotton Club Cruise Lines” theme – featured musical performances, raffles and prizes, Family Feud–styled games, and a room filled with white Sailor hats and black and red Sailor goody bags. The day’s festivities brought smiles and laughter to every “sailor” in the room.

The Central Boston Elder Services is a non–profit corporation that helps Boston area seniors remain in their homes and self–sufficient by providing short and long–term care. The organization seeks to provide high quality, responsive, supportive services and programs to the elderly and the disabled in need of health and human services. The Summer Swing event is just one of many the organization has hosted during its 40 year existence in celebration of Boston’s most seasoned residents.
