Adding a little beauty, a little fun and a little excitement! Lifespire’s Gercek and Chelsea residences were the beneficiaries of a delivery from Repeat Roses, a new community partner that believes in re-purposing event floral arrangements for social impact and sustainability. Our residents are enjoying these gorgeous flowers for the week, and in keeping with Repeat Roses’ zero waste mission, we will be returning the wilted flowers for composting and the vases for repurposing…but in the meantime, happy smiles and lovely flowers!
FLOWERS FOR LIFESPIRE
Johnny Grube, a long-time participant in Lifespire’s Staten Island CSC, was a Staten Island legend for his sense of community and love of Monsignor Farrell High School’s sports. After he passed last year, the High School struggled with a way of remembering Johnny’s spirit and support of their teams. The class of 2019 successfully petitioned the Staten Island Community Board 3, as well as local politicians, to have the part of Amboy Street that runs in front of the school’s gymnasium renamed after Johnny. Councilman Steven Matteo announced on March 24, 2019 that the petition was successful and that the unveiling of the new sign will take place this summer or fall! Congratulations to the Msgr. Farrell High School Class of 2019!
