Irving A. Glavin Regional Center

Thanksgiving Dinner
From a Massachusetts government auditor’s report:

The Irving A. Glavin Regional Center is operated by the Department of Mental Retardation. . . The Center provides support, housing options, training, and services to mentally retarded persons of all ages throughout central Massachusetts. The objectives of the Center include promoting optimum development of the mentally retarded, preventing costly long-term institutionalization of these individuals, and providing assistance to agencies and professional assigned to the care of these individuals.

For the 24th year in a row, Salem Covenant Church has hosted a group of Glavin Center residents for a Thanksgiving dinner on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving Day. Students from the church serve and eat dinner alongside the residents, and a short program of Christmas carols follows.
